Undrafted rookie Harris exceeding expectations in Saints secondary

Undrafted rookie Harris exceeding expectations in Saints secondary

(WVUE) - With an influx of injuries at the cornerback spot youngsters like De'Vante Harris, with no NFL experience, are starting to get substantial playing time. For an undrafted rookie like Harris this seems like too much too soon, but the Texas A&M alum is ready for the attention.

"I haven't exceeded my expectations because honestly I have a lot of confidence. My confidence is through the roof. I know I've exceeded other people's expectations," said De'Vante Harris.

Fifty-three roster projections give Harris a spot right now. With the Saints, or anywhere else for that matter, the Aggie knew he could deliver in the NFL.

"I just play football. It wouldn't have mattered if I came here or came somewhere else. I would have had the same mindset. I came to play football. I was raised to have confidence. I came to the right organization. We're ready
to grow and become a playoff contender," said Harris.

Harris doesn't lack for confidence, but he's still known to have a rookie moment. Especially when going up against superstar receiver DeAndre Hopkins.

"Oh he a great receiver. I'm not going to lie, I lined up and I was like this is Hopkins right here," said Harris.

Harris could be one of four undrafted rookies to make the Saints roster. Ken Crawley, Jack Allen, and Tommylee Lewis are also having strong camps.
