Broncos: Harris Jr. in All-Pro form


PFF-headlinesDenver cornerback Chris Harris Jr. is doing all he can to earn All-Pro honors as part of a much-improved Broncos defense. As the league’s highest-graded CB (+22.8), he leads the league with 0.59 Yards Per Cover Snap for corners with at least 300 snaps.

He’s been very effective sliding over to the slot as well, yielding another league-best mark of 0.66 Yards Per Cover Snap for corners with at least 200 slot snaps.

Adding to his Pro-Bowl resume, Harris Jr. is no slouch getting after the quarterback.  He has the second-highest Pass Rushing Productivity (26.7) for corners with at least 15 rushes. He’s Denver’s best corner blitz option, as the rest of the Broncos CBs have combined for no sacks, hits or hurries on 13 designed rushes.

With Denver’s passing offense slowing down, Harris Jr. is doing his best to keep opposing teams’ passing games in check.

    Bradley Roby had a sack against the Jets. But the point still stands, Chris Harris is having an amazing season.

    • Kurt

      The stat was a bit ambiguous so we now clarified that no other CB has a sack on a designed rush.

          He could have gotten a lot more closer to the 60 mil deals signed by Sherman-Peterson-Haden in the off season. I’m surprised he took such a steep discount.

            I’m glad he didn’t though. Means the Broncos have more money than they could’ve had.

            he just had a baby, so he doesn’t want to move. and his college teamate, aqib talib, is under contract for 5 years too. they’ll be best friends and best cb tandem for the duration of their contracts. money ain’t everything.

          • eYeDEF

            Sure but 15 mil is a lot of dough to concede.

            u r forgetting that he is only 11 months removed from tearing his acl against the chargers in the playoffs. risk aversion
