With the chance to talk to Nic Harris right after he signed his contract today, he made a comment in passing that I didn’t catch at first until I went back and listened to the tape. I asked him about transitioning from safety in college to LB now with the pads going on in camp, and he offered the following.
“I’m just a realist,” said Harris. “I know that football doesn’t change. The people get bigger, that’s about it. I played safety in college and I think by the end of it I’ll be back there a little bit.”
I still think his primary position will be linebacker, but might Perry Fewell have some specific packages drawn up with Harris in mind? He played five different defensive positions at a major college program in a top flight conference.
Fewell has used a three safety alignment in the past that’s worked well against opponents on run downs. I wonder if that might be where Harris fits into the safety equation. Don’t know, just guessing.
