Mizzou Charles Harris one of PFF's 10 best players in the trenches


5. Charles Harris, Missouri Charles Harris entered the year expected to replace Shane Ray, a 2015 first -round NFL draft pick. So far this season, Harris has had no problem living up to those expectations. Ranked as PFF’s 2nd best overall edge defender (+45.6), Harris has had a breakout year — ranking in the top 5 in pass rush grade (+28.4), run defense (+15.3) and total stops, with 33. Through 11 games Harris has racked up 44 total pressures, including 7 sacks, 12 QB hits and 25 hurries – placing him in the top 10 nationally for each respective category. Maybe most impressive of all has been his consistency – Harris has yet to post a negative overall grade this season and only once has he graded out poorly in either pass rush or run defense.
