ALL a player can ask for...

and if you look at his stats on a limited role..

The 49ers made Harris a sixth-round selection out of Florida in 2018. He registered 37 tackles, three passes defensed, and two forced fumbles through 16 games this past season. Harris, 26, has recorded 111 tackles, eight passes defensed, and five forced fumbles through his three NFL seasons.

how can you NOT like the guy ??

Easy. He absolutely sucks in coverage. He's only good for forcing fumbles
He's fine as a backup. Good tackler, ST teams, once in a while makes a great play in coverage. Glad he's back.
Don't want him starting at all.

He works good in heavy coverage packages too. It always seems like he gets a ton of fumbles
I kinda liked him and Cyprien playing some snaps at SAM.

I like how he's physical and fast. If he drastically improves on his coverage, he could be elite. It doesn't feel like Tartt is coming back so, this is the year Harris has to break out unless he just wants to be a back up forever...

I'd say it's the Moore and Ward show for the next year or 2 and Harris can play if one of them gets injured or as a LB in obvious passing downs

... AND you rather see the speedy Moore and the athletic Ward out there not doing ANYTHING at all ??

They've had their chances, average at best... why keep giving them chances when Harris at least shows potential... there's a lot of SS out there that does very well not being good with coverage...

Why? Bc they don't give up tds and huge plays in coverage like Harris who does like their going out of style. He's a backup for a reason. A very very good reason.
Marcell "Whiffner" Harris stinks. He is an awful tackler. Yes, he will knock your block off, but he whiffs more than he connects. He's a total liability coverage. He has zero anticipation, zero feel and garbage technique. People like to crap on Jimmie Ward, but I can't recall ONCE--not once since he moved to safety--Jimmie Ward allowing a receiver to get behind him. Jimmie doesn't make plays, but he also isn't a liability. Dude does his job. Marcell Harris allowed a receiver to get behind him twice in one season playing limited snaps. He was an underthrown ball vs the NYG from making that 3, too.

What the hell was Marcell Harris doing here? What technique is this? This is so bad lol.


No anticipation at all for the crosser. Dude is oblivious.


The Whiffner doing what he does best

It's a one year deal and if he doesn't prove himself in TC, he can easily be cut.
