Anthony Harris, S, Vikings
On 324 coverage snaps this past season with the Vikings, Anthony Harris was targeted just 13 times, allowing seven catches, picking off three, and watching another three fall to the ground incomplete.
That equated to a quarterback rating of 24.0 into Harris’ coverage, according to Pro Football Focus.
Among players with at least 200 coverage snaps this past season, that was the lowest QB rating for any safety in the league in coverage.
Harris could be the ‘next’ Darian Stewart type of addition for the Broncos in terms of them getting a player at a low cost who has a very high efficiency when he’s on the field.
The former Virginia Cavalier would give the Broncos yet another stud with the last name Harris on defense (there must be something in the name) and a player who has steadily improved into the complete package over the past four years with the Vikings.
He played 624 snaps in total this past season — the most of his NFL career by far — and his effectiveness on a per snap basis improved. This is an ascending player and the Broncos would be wise to invest now.
He will be 28 in October.
