Expert Opinion: Ronnie Harrison’s Player Profile


As with any high-profile Alabama Football prospect, Ronnie Harrison has elite talent. His combination of size and speed gives him a great chance to be an impactful player in the NFL, but questions persist about his mental makeup, making him a far lower rated prospect than his running mate, Minkah Fitzpatrick.

In his final season, Harrison displayed some versatility as a guy who can be the back end of a defense (3 INTs), as well as come in on the line of scrimmage and participate in blitz packages (2.5 sacks). His strength and speed are already at an NFL level, however some question his power above the shoulder pads.

Too many times he was baited by a skilled QB who got him to bite on some complex routes. His tackling form is also shaky as too many times he did not wrap up instead leading with the head or shoulder. Big backs in the NFL will bounce right off of him if that continues, and worse for him, it could lead to serious injuries.

Ultimately with Ronnie Harrison, NFL teams are getting a raw talented player who will need some time to adjust to complex NFL offenses before he will see any success at the pro level. For the Browns, this is an interesting prospect to look at in the mid rounds as we are in desperate need of DB talent and if nothing else, Harrison will bring that to the table.
