2012 Falcons Training Camp: Jerrell Harris Impressing Mike Nolan

Jerrell Harris is turning heads at Falcons Training Camp and most notably that of defensive coordinator Mike Nolan. Harris went undrafted out of Alabama in the 2012 NFL Draft but his size and speed caught the eye of Nolan early in camp.

"I think he stands out because of his size, everybody is impressed with his size," Nolan said. "He moves well for a big man. He hasn't dropped off much since the OTAs, which is kind of pleasing," Nolan said. "Sometimes rooks come back and they've forgotten the whole thing. But he's done a good job. I'm watching him myself because he's definitely a big guy that can run."

Harris has been practicing with the third-team defense at linebacker and looked strong defending the run and the tight end on Sunday.
