Jaguars Draft FSU CB Mike Harris in 6th Round

New Jaguars CB Mike Harris at FSU

The Jaguars drafted Florida State cornerback Mike Harris in the 6th round of the NFL Draft.

Harris, a transfer from El Camino community college in California, primarily played nickel cornerback at FSU. After transfering from El Camino, Harris played for the Seminoles for two seasons, playing extensively at the nickel. He finished 2nd on the team in tackles last year with 58, and finishes his collegiate career with the Seminoles with 102 tackles and five interceptions in two seasons.

“He likes contact,” said Head Coach Mike Mularkey,”in our defense our corners have to tackle, and they have to tackle physically. He’s one of those guys.”

Harris also has a strong background as a special teamer at Flordia State, which will be essential for him if he is going to find a spot with the Jaguars.

“A lot of his production has been as a special teams player, so we like that part of it,” Mularkey said, “if he can’t come here and start right away, we know he has a chance to be part of our game day roster and he can be one of our special teams core players, if he comes in here with the right mentality.”
