Harris is the type of player undrafted players should model their personality after if teams pass on them.
The Denver Broncos cornerback has fought every camp like it was his last. In his tenure with the team, Harris made a mark as one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL. The notoriety of Harris is also not where it needs to be. Harris continues to be forgotten in the top five cornerback discussion.
He did have a rough performance against Keenan Allen, but Harris is still steady. During the game, Harris had to take fluids. Here are the milestones he’s achieved or is close to achieving.
- Chris Harris’ interception of Phillip Rivers Sunday made him the only NFL player with multiple interceptions in each of the last seven seasons.
- With his one pass defended, Harris Jr. tied Steve Atwater and Tyrone Braxton for the third most passes defended by Bronco. The stat began being tracked in 1994. Harris is a mile away from Champ Bailey, but Harris is already making his mark as one of the best cornerbacks to don a Denver Broncos uniform.
- As for the pick-sixes, Chris Harris Jr. is one interception away from pass Braxton again. Mike Harden and Braxton have four in their careers. Harris’ former Jayhawk and Broncos teammate Aqib Talib is in sole possession of first place with six. Harris needs two to tie Talib in that category.
