The backup Race: Demetrius Harris

Harris recently has been the back-up for Kelce, and 50% of the time, he is a darn good football player. However, 50% of the other time, he isn’t.

Harris, a former college basketball player has the frame to be a successful tight end in the NFL, but his fundamentals don’t always work out. He translates his boxing out ability from basketball to football very well, but he certainly appears to not have the consistent hands to be reliable.

No, I am not dogging on Harris, but it is the truth. He drops easy passes, and he isn’t the quickest man in the world. If the Kansas City Chiefs were to keep him on the roster this season, Harris currently faces a one-game suspension due to his arrest in 2017.

Harris owns the most experience out of the tight ends. However, that does not make him an automatic lock to make the roster. His inconsistency and his recent arrest may set him over the edge, and cause him to be released.
