If the Atlanta Falcons like the size of Paris Johnson Jr. then they should like the size of the Buckeyes’ edge defender, Zach Harrison.
There are more similarities between those two players than just them being six-foot-six, they both were highly recruited, they both are phenomenal athletes, and they both have underachieved in college. Maybe they can put it together when it matters most in the CFP.
While Harrison—who is a senior—has only registered 3 sacks and 6.5 tackles for loss in 12 games this year, the same can be said about Danielle Hunter from a few years back, and look how good he has been in the NFL.
Although I don’t think I trust the Falcons to turn a great pass-rushing prospect into a force in the NFL, who knows what could happen, maybe he just needs a change of scenery and a new perspective on things. At this point, the Falcons should be going down every avenue as they look for a standout pass rusher.
