Damon Harrison can help the Jacksonville Jaguars stop the run.
Early in his career, defensive tackle Damon Harrison, alongside defensive ends Sheldon Richardson and Muhammad Wilkerson, was part of a formidable defensive line for the New York Jets. However, ‘Snacks’ hasn’t had as much success and garnered much demand recently due to his limited skill set. Although he excels at stopping opposing offenses from running the ball, he’s a non-factor in passing downs.
Had Harrison played 20 years ago, he would be a Pro Bowler but the impact he can have in the field is limited in current times. In his defense, the undrafted free agent has been pretty consistent and has stayed healthy throughout his 11-year career, starting 111 games and tallying 494 total tackles (37 for a loss), 11 sacks, ten pass deflections, and five forced fumbles.
Last season, Harrison earned a 66.9 Pro Football Focus overall grade but his pass rush stood at 47.8. The Jaguars had trouble stopping the run and the defensive tackle could fortify their front four. They wouldn’t have to break the bank to sign him and could end up with an underrated addition.
