Dolphins signed CB Brandon Harris and waived CB Tyler Patmon.
A failed 2011 second-round pick of the Texans, Harris has been bouncing around the league in recent years. The Dolphins easily have the worst cornerback group in football, so Harris' agent did him a solid choosing this landing spot. Sun, Jul 31, 2016 05:24:00 PM

Titans CB Brandon Harris suffered a torn ACL in Tuesday's OTAs session, and was placed on injured reserve.

He also has a torn meniscus. Re-signed in March, Harris played just 112 snaps on defense last season. The No. 60 overall pick of the 2011 draft, Harris turned 25 in January. Provided he's healthy, he'll compete for someone's final roster spot in 2016.

Titans re-signed CB Brandon Harris to a one-year contract.

Harris, the 60th pick in the 2011 draft by the Texans, appeared in 11 games for the Titans last season, playing 112 defensive snaps as a part-time slot corner. He'll compete for one of the final roster spots in training camp this summer.

Texans waived CB Brandon Harris.

The 60th overall pick in the 2011 draft, Harris couldn't find a home as a slot corner or outside cover man in three seasons with the Texans. Still only 24 years old, Harris is a good bet to resurface elsewhere in fairly short order.

Texans CB Brandon Harris is going through concussion protocol after getting knocked out in OTAs this week.

"We’re putting him through the protocol that you would do during the regular season," coach Gary Kubiak said. "A guy gets dinged like that, gets knocked out like he did, we’ll put him through the total protocol. You probably won’t see him for a good week as he goes through the process." Harris collided with first-round WR DeAndre Hopkins earlier in the week. He might sit until minicamp.

Secondary coach Vance Joseph insists CB Brandon Harris "is what we thought he was" when the Texans drafted him in last year's second round.

The 60th overall pick, Harris played just 28 snaps as a rookie. There were rumors he couldn't run downfield fast enough to contribute on kick and punt coverage. "He’s got great feet. He’s got great ball skills," Joseph insisted. "He needs to play. The minicamp really proved that if he has a chance to play, he can play well." Harris will open 2012 as no better than a dime back.

Texans CB Brandon Harris reportedly struggled to get on the field as a rookie due to a "lack of speed."

Harris had no role in Houston's secondary, and coaches felt he didn't run downfield fast enough to contribute on kick and punt coverage. Undersized with a 4.53 forty time, Harris probably won't be viewed as future starter by the Texans. He may get a chance to play behind Johnathan Joseph, Kareem Jackson, and nickel back Brice McCain in 2012, replacing free agent Jason Allen.

The Steelers tried unsuccessfully to trade up in the second round for a cornerback.

Their primary targets were presumably Ras-I Dowling and Aaron Williams, the first two players off the board on Friday. The Steelers were "all ready" to draft Brandon Harris late in the round, only to see the Texans trade up to steal him. Tackle Marcus Gilbert was Plan B for Pittsburgh.

The Texans haven't yet decided where they'll play second-round pick CB Brandon Harris next season.

"He has the ability to play outside, but college ball is more of a one-back spread game," DBs coach Vance Joseph said. "The best corner usually goes in the slot in college, so it’s hard to say where we like him, but, obviously, he’s played a lot of nickel, and he’s played outside." More than likely, most of Harris' snaps will come at nickelback during his rookie season.

Texans traded up with the Patriots to select Miami CB Brandon Harris with the No. 60 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

Houston surrenders picks Nos. 73 and 138. NFL Network's Mike Mayock believes there's an abyss-filled, two-round drop at cornerback after Harris, and the Texans were desperate to fix the worst secondary in the league. While Harris lacks shutdown potential and ideal size, he's a technically solid coach's son who projects as an average starter or top-notch nickelback. As desperate as the Texans are in the defensive backfield, Harris will be an immediate contributor.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette lists Miami CB Brandon Harris, Baylor NT Phil Taylor, and Mississippi State OT Derek Sherrod as his top three choices for the Steelers at No. 31 overall.

Bouchette has been all over Harris for weeks now, but he's coming around to the idea of drafting Taylor as run-plugger Casey Hampton's successor. Bouchette also likes Florida G/C Mike Pouncey and Ohio State DE Cameron Heyward, but doesn't believe either will be available that late in the first round.

One AFC scout describes Miami (FL) CB Brandon Harris as a low-risk, but potentially low-reward prospect.

"At worst, he’s going to be a solid professional," said the scout. "His ceiling is sort of low. You’re not talking about a perennial Pro Bowl player ... (but) the way even mediocre corners get paid in this game, a guy who will make a lot of money some day." No draft analysts seem to believe Harris has elite skill, but he could fit in as a nickel back at the next level.

Miami CB Brandon Harris managed just a 34 1/2-inch vertical at the Hurricanes' Pro Day Thursday.

He lost an inch off his Combine vert. Harris' stock throughout the draft process has been affected by his December 31 Sun Bowl torching, and in that game he was victimized on at least one jump ball for a deep bomb. Harris hasn't helped himself this winter by weighing in shorter than expected at the Combine, showing so-so athleticism, and running 4.53 in Indianapolis.

Miami CB Brandon Harris ran a 4.43 unofficial forty time at the Scouting Combine on Tuesday.

It's a great time for any player, but Harris' stock was already damaged this week with a 5-foot-9 4/8 height measurement at 191 pounds. With four career picks at Miami, it's hard to imagine Harris' resume being first-round worthy.

Miami CB Brandon Harris measured in at just 5-foot-9 at the Scouting Combine weigh-in Sunday.

Harris has been mentioned as a potential first-rounder, but 5'9" corners don't typically go on day one. He's also coming off the worst game of his career, a torching at the hands of Notre Dame WR Michael Floyd in the Sun Bowl. Harris is considered to have some of the quickest feet among draft-eligible corners, but his stock has been dropping since early January.
