I watched this reel too, and am also impressed. There is some reservation about his "length". Not saying he's going to be the next Debo, but Harrison isn't exactly a Wilt Chamberlain either. I like the edge rushers that can use leverage gained by being a little shorter and squatty. When this kid get to about 255 lbs, he's going to be a handful.

It is going to be measured in his heart, his game speed, his ability to learn, and his ability to make plays ... these kids are always a long shot ...  

Travis Feeney was snagged off the Steelers practice squad last season by New orleans. It would have been nice to see what a second year kid could do with a full year under his belt, but Feeney would have never started in Pittsburgh anyways ... 

Keion Adams is basically Feeney's replacement the way I see it ... a long shot developmental kid ...

I'm not so sure Feeney would have made it here as one of our traditional style linebacker. IMO, he was more of a 4/3 OLB type, or even a hybrid saftey/linebacker with that speed of his. Did he even hit the field for New Orleans?
