    Whats the eval on him so far?

    I woulda focused more on him if I saw him, but I was at a phins fan's place watching the game sunday and he got suddenly interested in the chargers/pats game, no idea why :spin:

    He hasn't suited up yet. Was inactive in both games.

    Has he even been in a game yet? I was literally just looking him up for work, but the Texans' website said he hasn't been in a game yet, and they have it updated on other players up to week 2.

    I'd like to see what his status is, being our second draft pick and all, and especially after watching Allen get manhandled. I know Harris isn't a physical beast either, but maybe he knows how to tackle.

    Twas an exciting draft. We selected JJ Watt and Brooks Reed with our original 1st and 2nd round picks, respectively. We then traded up to the latter part of the 2nd round to secure Brandon Harris. He's a 2nd rounder but was our 3rd selection. I hope he can get on the field and develop some, I'm excited about him being in our secondary.

    The Texans are doing with Harris what they should have done with Kareem last year, not play him, redshirt him, ease him in slowly with as little pressure as possible.

    Thank you Wade for showing this novel concept to the organization.

    You have to have the luxury of depth in order to sit folks as well. I'm shocked at the number of Texans "cast-offs" that were signed by other teams.

    Didn't Wade once say that Brandon Harris was going to be our nickel?

    Agreed. Who else were we going to start at corner last year, Jacques Reeves?

    He said he was a good college nickel and had the skills to do that at the NFL level, but never declared him that at any time.

    It's nice to have depth. Although if Jason Allen keeps playing the way he did, Harris may be activated.

    I don't have time to find the quote but I am fairly positive that he said Harris had the nickel spot locked up in training camp or preseason.

    That was Vance Joseph.

    He said "the nickel spot is his". I think I posted the quote somewhere around here.

    The "problem" for Harris is our coaching. We now have better coaches who have improved McMannis and McCain. This is a good thing.

    I'm still excited about Harris and he will probably be the nickle by the end of the yr. It wouldn't suprise me if Harris is starting sometime next yr.

    Didn't Molden make the Pats team.

    I remember suspecting that the quote was taken out of context. Seems I was right.

    Yep - he's been active for both games. Don't know if he actually played.
