Harris makes up for size with strength

Jan. 12, 2013
 

By NFL running back standards, DuJuan Harris is short (5-foot-8) and light (203 pounds).

But is he ever strong.

At his Pro Day coming out of Troy University, Harris did 27 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press.

“I thought it was 28,” Harris said. “I was mad. I wanted to do 30. A lot of people probably wouldn’t think it, but I’m a pretty strong guy. I was pressing 370 coming out of high school.”

Though Harris wasn’t invited to the scouting combine the year he came out, 2011, only one running back there — Shane Vereen, a second-round pick of the New England Patriots — did more reps than Harris. Vereen did 31.

For comparison’s sake, Clay Matthews did 23 reps on the bench in his workout.
