Jaguars selected Alabama S Ronnie Harrison with the No. 93 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.
Harrison (6’2/207) spent three years in Tuscaloosa, starting for two and contributing in all three with 31 pass breakups and seven interceptions. Harrison led the Crimson Tide in tackles as a 2017 junior (74), earning first-team All-SEC. He underwhelmed in pre-draft testing, however, managing a 4.63 forty and 34-inch vertical. Still, Harrison looks the part of an NFL strong safety or dime-package linebacker with the longest arms in this safety class (33 3/8"), a tone-setting playing style, and natural ball skills. He offers upside as a strong safety prospect. Apr 27 - 10:39 PM

An anonymous scout told Bob McGinn Football that Alabama S Ronnie Harrison is a "prototypical strong safety."

The scout continued to speak glowingly about Harrison saying "He won’t have a problem covering tight ends unless his eye discipline gets bad. Same qualities as Kam (Chancellor) but a better coverage player" and "He can be a violent striker but he’s more of an engulfing tackler. He’s a big presence in the alley." Another scout said he is a "jawbreaker tackler compared to Minkah." Interestingly enough, Harrison has taken a visit with the Seahawks as they potentially look for a successor for Chancellor. Harrison will likely be a Day 2 selection.

An NFC team executive said that Alabama S Ronnie Harrison is "a feisty guy."

"Big and athletic but he's not really the brains of the defense over there," the executive said. And he's fine with that, noting that even though Harrison might not be The Man with the Plan in the locker room, the 6-foot-2, 207-pounder "handles his work." The Alabama safety took a visit to the DB-needy Seahawks late last week as he looks to secure a Day 2 selection.

Alabama S Ronnie Harrison is visiting the Seahawks on Thursday.

This visit makes so much sense. Harrison, at his best, might be compared to Kam Chancellor. With Chancellor's future a bit cloudy, the Seahawks might invest in a player to take his spot outside of the first round.

Alabama S Ronnie Harrison (hamstring) will run the 40-yard dash on March 28, during the school's second pro day.

Bama held their first pro day on Wednesday. They'll loop back around for another one at month's end. Harrison did not run the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine due to a sore hamstring. While there have been some questions about Harrison's upside as a vocal leader, he's plenty athletic and will very much be in play for a Day 1 selection in April.

According to NFL Network's Mike Mayock, Alabama S Ronnie Harrison's agent said Harrison sat out the 40 due to a sore hamstring.

Harrison warmed up and summarily decided he could not run the 40. No biggie. He'll give it a go at Alabama's pro day.

An NFC executive who spoke with NFL Media's Lance Zierlein said that Alabama S Ronnie Harrison is "not really 'that dude' who runs the show."

The exec likes Harrison for his fire and athleticism, but does not mince words about some of his supposed demerits, telling Zierlein that the 6-foot-3, 216-pounder was "not really the brains of the defense over there." He does not expect this to change in the NFL. Concluded the executive, "He handles his work, though." In his first mock draft of the evaluating season, Zierlein slides Harrison in with the Pittsburgh Steelers with the No. 28 pick on Day 1.
Feb 3 - 3:09 PM's Matt Zenitz reports that Alabama junior S Ronnie Harrison will forego his final season of eligibility to enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Harrison (6'3/216) was named an All-SEC first-teamer for his work during the 2017 campaign. He logged 74 tackles (4.5 for loss), three sacks and three interceptions for the season. The trio of picks are nothing new -- Harrison has at least two of them in each of his three years in Tuscaloosa. While he's not as much an athletic specimen as fellow S Minkah Fitzpatrick, Harrison is a smart player with plus-instincts and a tough customer against the run. On the side of demerit, Walter Football's Charlie Campbell has been less-than-impressed by his work in man-to-man coverage and sees his best fit at the NFL level coming in a zone scheme. We expect him to be swept off the board on Day 1 this spring, early on Day 2 at the latest.
Jan 11 - 1:40 PM draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah calls Alabama junior S Ronnie Harrison one of the most underrated players in the country.

"When he hits people, they stop," Jeremiah said. Harrison has been one of the more productive safeties in the country, but doesn't have the recognition of some of the other defenders at Alabama. Scouts and analysts are certainly taking notice, however, and he could be one of the first safeties off the board thanks to his physicality (6'3/216) and underrated coverage skills.

ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks Alabama junior S Ronnie Harrison No. 13 on his 2018 big board.

"Harrison ... [is] aggressive and loves to hit. ... [He] can cover, too," Kiper wrote. Last season, Harrison notched 83 tackles, 1.5 TFL, two interceptions (one of which he returned for a touchdown at Tennessee) and seven passes defended. Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom projected the Dolphins to select Harrison at No. 14 overall in a recent 2018 mock draft, writing that the 6-foot-3, 216-pounder is "a big-hitter with plus-range."

In his 2018 mock draft, Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom projected the Dolphins to select Alabama junior S Ronnie Harrison at No. 14.

"Harrison was a little overshadowed by the Crimson Tide’s draft-eligible stars in the secondary last season, but he’ll break out into the national spotlight this fall," Nystrom writes, adding that the 6-foot-3, 216-pounder is "a big-hitter with plus-range." This past season, Harrison notched 83 tackles (1.5 for loss), two interceptions (one of which he returned for a touchdown) and seven passes defended.
