With the 10th pick (No. 184 overall) in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers selected Florida safety Marcell Harris.

Harris had a slow start with Florida because he was recovering from a knee injury suffered in high school. He had a break-out season for the Gators as a junior in 2016. Harris registered 73 combined tackles, four for a loss, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, a sack, and scored a touchdown on defense. He did not play during his senior season after suffering a torn Achilles last summer.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-foot-1 and 216-pound Harris had had 16 reps in the bench press. Other measurables for Harris include an arm length of 32 inches and hands that measure 8 5/8 inches.

He has similar physical measurables to 49ers safety Jaquiski Tartt, who signed a two-year extension with the team on Friday.

NFL.com projected Harris to be an undrafted free agent.



ESPN offered the following pre-draft analysis on Harris:

"Harris played sparingly as a reserve safety and contributed on special teams before racking up a team-high 73 tackles in 2016. Unfortunately, he tore his Achilles in July and missed the 2017 season. He's an in-the-box safety who, when healthy, is good enough on special teams to push for a roster spot."

Lance Zierlein of NFL.com wrote the following about Harris within his scouting report:

"Harris has made just nine starts during his career and is coming off one of the more troubling injuries a football player can suffer with a torn Achilles. While the deck is stacked against him, he does have NFL size and he's proven to be a productive special teams contributor while at Florida. Harris isn't a bad football player but his below average speed and recovery from an Achilles tear will make it hard to land a spot."

Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst wrote the following the following about Harris within his scouting report:

"After his junior campaign of 2016, Harris moved towards his senior season as a potential mid-round choice but was sidelined with an Achilles injury. If healthy and back to full speed, he offers possibilities as a strong safety or in a zone system."
