FA Profile: QB Trevor Harris

Levi Brown now has a camp battle to watch

It hasn’t been the easiest two days for Bills fans thus far in this post-lockout offseason. First we had our hopes dashed on possibly landing big name UDFA’s; LB Mario Harvey and WR Dane Sanzenbacher, and then the big blow came when we lost veteran ILB Paul Pozluosny. Some faith has been restored with the Bills adding veteran QB Tyler Thigpen to the mix and then earlier today when CB Drayton Florence officially announced he had re-signed with the team. Bills Nation however is still uneasy as we move forward in this new CBA world.

While all of that has been playing out, early this morning it was announced (and largely unnoticed) that the Bills had added yet another QB to their roster when they came to terms with FA QB Trevor Harris (who will officially sign on Friday). Now BBD won’t be doing a FA profile for every player we sign this year, like we will do with the UDFA’s, but with Harris having been part of the 2010 draft class and coming from a small school we figured we’d put together a quick report for fans who may be left asking themselves “Trevor who?”.

Trevor Harris comes for the Division II level, and played in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC). He played for Edinboro and was a four year starter for the program. He was named PSAC Freshman of the Year in 2006, and PSAC Offensive Player of the Year in both 2007 and 2008. He suffered a minor knee injury which required surgery in 2009 but has since shown he is back to 100% health.

Standing at 6’2, 235 lbs. Harris has ideal size for the QB position. One of the concerns for him coming out of school was whether or not could he add enough weight to his frame. He has clearly answered those questions adding nearly 20 lbs since leaving school. He’s also not just a drop back passer, Harris ran a 4.72 40 at his Pro Day, and has the ability to escape the pocket and make things happen with his feet when a play breaks down.

Harris has displayed very good accuracy with his throws throughout his career. He throws a catchable passes and makes the correct reads when scanning the defense. He has nice touch on his deep ball and shows the ability to drop it into the bucket.

While at Edinboro, Harris was seen as the team leader and had an on the field swagger that you want in a potential franchise player. He commands respect in the huddle and isn’t afraid to get after players who he feels are not pulling their weight.

He may only have an average arm, but he has more than enough arm to complete all the passes NFL scouts look for in a QB. He’s not going to blow you away with his deep ball, and he has that gunslinger mentality where he’s willing to try any throw at any time. He can get into trouble when forcing passes and will drive coaches crazy.

The one thing he will need to improve on in the NFL is developing a better feel for the pocket. He is too quick to bail out of the pocket and lacks the instincts to feel pressure at this stage in his career.

Harris is going to be labeled as a camp arm, but we aren’t so sure of that. We think Harris could challenge for the #3 QB spot. Levi Brown is far from the twinkle in Buffalo’s eye, and lest us not forget that Brown was cut at first and resigned later last year. The #3 QB battle is wide open and Harris won’t go down without a fight.
