The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news that you need to know, including rookie Nick Harris being ready to prove people wrong.
The Cleveland Browns front office looked at several different traits when it came to the 2020 NFL Draft class, with some standing out more than others. One of the more surprising picks of their draft class was fifth round selection Nick Harris.
Harris showed some solid potential during his time at Washington, but fell in the draft because he was viewed as scheme dependent. With a lack of size, Harris would have been bullied in the NFL had he been put into the wrong scheme.
With Kevin Stefanski’s wide zone, play-action scheme, Harris’ scheme dependent moniker fit perfectly into what the Browns were going to be doing on offense. Now that Harris has been put into the system he needs to be in, he can now put in the work to show why he should have been drafted earlier.

The Browns do not need overpowering maulers on their offensive line, so Harris’ talent will fit right into Cleveland’s plans when they feel he is ready to take the field, despite his smaller stature.
