Anton Harrison 2023 NFL Draft Scouting Report

Background: 

  • Four-star recruit and Under Armour All-American 
  • Chose Oklahoma over the likes of Michigan, Ohio State, and Penn State 

System: 

  • Scheme tendencies: Spread
  • 2022 projected role: Starting left tackle 

Pros: Despite having room to fill out his frame, Anton Harrison has the physical profile of an appealing NFL offensive tackle prospect. He features a long and athletic build with good arm length. Harrison is thick in his lower half and he’s far from maxed out. He has the athleticism needed to mirror rushers and handle speed off the edge while offering plenty of range as a run blocker. Harrison has quick and nimble feet with loose hips, which makes it natural for him to redirect, work laterally, and get into space. I like his overall balance and how he plays within himself, rarely getting overextended or top-heavy. Harrison earned playing time as a true freshman before becoming the full-time starting left tackle as a sophomore in 2021 and is expected to continue serving as the blindside protector in 2022. If he stays healthy and declares for the 2023 NFL Draft, Harrison will have an impressive resume of experience at left tackle. 

Cons: The key for Anton Harrison moving forward is getting stronger and developing his footwork in pass protection to better take advantage of his length and movement skills. While Harrison isn’t overpowered at the point of attack, he is far from a people-mover that creates consistent displacement in drive-block situations. With more functional strength and by executing with better leverage, Harrison will become an even more effective blocker in the run and pass game. His pass sets are inconsistent in terms of getting the depth and width necessary to frame blocks. Too often Harrison will open his hips too soon and create soft angles for rushers to work through, which can be improved with more consistent footwork in his kickslide. Harrison has room to improve his hand technique where his timing and placement can be erratic and inconsistent.
