2010 Scouting Report: Trevor Harris, QB, Edinboro

via www.psacsports.org

In recent years teams have found success when scouting players from non-Division 1A schools. Since 2006 only 26 players have been drafted that didn't come from a Division I school and for the most part they have been pretty successful. In last year's draft 7 such players were drafted including Sammie Lee Hill, Johnny Knox, Keith Null and the Jaguars own Zach Miller. 

The Jaguars have a recent history of searching for players in places that are not considered to be traditional NFL talent producers. William and Mary, Nebraska-Omaha, Hampton and Bethune Cookman are not widely recognized for their football programs yet the Jaguars have successfully pulled gems from each university.

Edinboro University has produced two NFL players in its history, neither of which played a game in the last 27 seasons. Which makes it a tad eye opening when reports have surfaced that scouts from about half the teams in the league have been making regular appearances at Edinboro games. The reason is because a very intriguing talent is there in Trevor Harris.

A four year starter, Harris was freshman of the year in 2006 and earned 2nd team All-PSAC West honors. In his sophomore and junior seasons Harris was the 1st team All-PSAC West QB along with the conference offensive player of the year. Although having a minor knee surgery midway through his senior season, Harris finished the season as the All-PSAC West 1st Team QB. Basically he dominated his competition as much as possible earning Division II All-American honors in his junior and senior seasons.

The Jaguars seem to have noticed, scheduling a private workout with the Edinboro QB on April 13th. At 6'2, 222 pounds, Harris will have to build on his frame before he can be successful in the NFL; however, he has the tools necessary to be a perfect developmental quarterback. Although the conventional thought has been that he will go undrafted, with 15 or 16 teams rumored to have interest in Harris it seems very possible that a team would use a late round pick to take away the opportunity of other teams to convince him to try out at their camp.

According to the Experts

 

CDS Draft

Pros

Really understands the nuances of QB play. Big enough with a good enough arm. Tough. Will play hurt. Can take a licking and keep on ticking. Can make most of the throws with solid consistency and is fairly accurate. Takes command and rallies the troops. Relishes the leadership role. Was very productive at a low level of competition, and certainly did not look out of place at the Cactus Bowl. Has a swagger and a winner's attitude. Has some impressive upside left. Lots of raw tools, and is closer to being ready than many DI QBs.

Cons

Not a real big-league deep ball. Has never proven himself against big-time DBs. A bit streaky. Will force things at time. Has too much of an appreciation for his own talent, and you may have to tell him things twice. Likes to run, but will not be successful with that at the next level. May have trouble adjusting to tight windows at the next level. Can come off as a tad abrasive.

JBScouting Small School Outlook

His production can't be overlooked as a three-time All-PSAC selection and two-time offensive player of the year, he passed for 2,780 yards, 26 touchdowns, and completed 65.9% of his passes as a junior.  Harris must bulk up at just 6'2, 210 pounds but has the arm strength, accuracy, production, and intelligence to get serious looks in the postseason as long as he can get to the 220 range.
