Harris served as Gunner on special teams at USC and also is an added developmental cover 2 corner for insurance to be here and develop and learn our system so he can move up the depth chart if Mcgee is not signed after next season which I believe?- is an uncapped year and will be much harder to resign any free agents. Harris will be brought in to compete with Justin Jenkins and replace if he's good enough, We're overloaded at WR and Parrish was not traded earlier on in the draft and is the best PR in the NFL and holds more value than Jenkins if we can find another gunner(Cary Harris who Bobby April must've seen something in him and he offers us value at two positions and can develop in our system for a full year before Mcgee is likely gone)
Ellis Lankster is loaded with talent and would've been taken higher but has a troubled past-he serves no potential as a Gunner but does as a return specialist! One of these guys will be on the final roster and thee other is practice squad at best.
Round 6, Cary Harris, FS-CB USC, 5-11, 187
Positives: Physical at the line of scrimmage, supports the run and tackles willingly. SERVED AS GUNNER ON SPECIAL TEAMS.
Negatives: Average ball skills, durability an issue.
Summary: Good-sized corner with physical element to his game. Physical style could open the door for a transition to safety.
Round 7, Ellis Lankster, CB West Virginia, 5-9, 191
Positives: Competes for the ball like a receiver, attacks it in the air.
Negatives: Inconsistent versus the run. Character needs to be evaluated (was arrested for transferring and receiving stolen property - laptop computer - completed a diversion program and was suspended three games).
Summary: Caught some interest at the Senior Bowl.
