Reid Harrison-Ducros scouting report

Speed/Athleticism: Reid Harrison-Ducros was the best athlete on the field in almost every game he played for Duquesne. He has good speed and should record a forty around 4.4. Very quick and fluid athlete. Excellent burst. He can make up for mistakes in coverage because of his speed.

Coverage Ability: Harrison-Ducros is a cover corner to a tee. Shows good man coverage skills because of the fluidity in his hips, is able to change direction at will and gets positioning. He has good ball skills that allow him to make plays. Plays smart in zone coverage. Stays disciplined to his assignment. Struggles in press coverage. He seems to lack the physicality to jam a receiver at the line and throw them off of their route. Covers bigger receivers well because of his positioning.

Ball Skills: Excellent ball skills. Recorded 4 interceptions and 14 pass breakups in two seasons at Duquesne. Recorded 4 pass breakups in 11 games at Boise State. Positions himself well against receivers and doesn’t usually draw pass interference. Plays to the ball aggressively.

Tackling Ability: Doesn’t show much interest in tackling, and will not wow you with his results. Didn’t often receive opportunities to tackle because of the amount of game-planning by offenses to avoid his side of the field. Struggles to get off of blocks from receivers and seems more content to eat the block then try to make the tackle.

Football IQ/Awareness: Harrison-Ducros shows good FBI and awareness of the field around him. Adjusts to route concepts while playing zone coverage and takes windows away. Naturally feels the field and the receivers. Disciplined to his assignments and doesn’t often create outside of those opportunities.

Leadership/Personality: Harrison-Ducros left Boise State as a sophomore to play more at Duquesne. The move paid off, as he became the starter instantly, a team captain as a senior, and opposing offenses clearly game-planned around him.

Overall: Reid Harrison-Ducros is a very intriguing prospect for the NFL. Because of his lack of size, NFL teams are going to project him as a slot cornerback. However, they aren’t going to like the lack of physicality on the field and his inability to be a non-factor in run defense. He’s a project, and there will be a couple of teams that like the athleticism and will try to bulk him up and make him more physical. He’s a day three guy to me, and an immediate back-up boundary corner.
