Saints signed Texas A&M CB De'Vante Harris.
Harris (5'11/176) primarily played nickel back for the Aggies, starting for 1 1/2 seasons and tallying 29 career pass breakups, including five interceptions. Harris showed well at the Combine, running 4.54 but shining in the vertical (38 1/2") and broad (10'4") jumps. Harris is too light and lanky to play perimeter corner in the NFL, and not a good enough tackler to man the slot. Harris has potential, but he needs to get stronger while adding at least ten pounds.

Pro Football Focus' Steve Palazzolo says Texas A&M CB De'Vante Harris "moves extremely well in coverage, with a good feel for routes in both man and zone coverage."

Pro Football Focus ranked Harris the ninth-most underrated player in the entire draft class. "Even against taller receivers, he’s held his own, as he’s only surrendered 15 catches on 28 targets against 6-3 or taller receivers the last two years," Palazzolo wrote. And indeed the analyst believes Harris plays bigger than his 5-foot-11 height. "There’s some boom-or-bust to his game, as he’ll go all in to make plays at times, but there’s more good than bad and he’s flying under the radar heading into the draft," he concluded.

An AFC area scout praised Texas A&M CB De'Vante Harris' demeanor.

"He believes he's the best player on the field at all times. I love that," the scout said. "If he had about 20 more pounds on those bones we might be looking at something, but I think he's late Day 3 to undrafted." Harris, who runs a high 4.4s forty, had two picks and eight breakups last year. "Intelligent and instinctive, Harris has been a steady contributor for the Texas A&M defense from the moment he stepped on campus," wrote NFL Media's Lance Zierlein. Harris is thin and isn't a sure tackler.

Texas A&M CB De'Vante Harris pulled a hamstring during his Pro Day workout.

Harris is fighting to get drafted, so it was an unfortunate turn of events. Prior to the injury, he ran the forty in 4.5 and 4.46 seconds. "Harris had a good workout and is really fluid, but he's just not big or strong," wrote's Gil Brandt.

Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin has suspended four players for the first two games of the season.

Three of the four are starters. Sophomore corner De’Vante Harris, senior linebacker Steven Jenkins, freshman receiver Edward Pope and junior defensive lineman Gavin Stansbury are the four names sidelined. The three veteran defensive players are the aforementioned starters. A&M cited violation of athletic department rules as their reasoning for the suspensions.
