No. 7 prospect 49ers don’t want to see in NFC West: LB Christian Harris, Alabama
The Hawks elected to part ways with perennial All-Pro linebacker Bobby Wagner, turning the final page on those Super Bowl-caliber Seattle teams from years ago. And in tandem with Russell Wilson’s departure, the Seahawks are poised for what is likely going to be a lengthy building.
Time to find some building blocks.
One of those players who could fit the bill is Alabama linebacker Christian Harris, who has demonstrated keen pass-rushing capabilities on the blitz with 10 total sacks over his final two collegiate seasons, quality run-stopping abilities and the knack for dropping back into coverage with solid production and skills there, too.
At 6-foot-2 and 232 pounds, Harris is a solid off-ball linebacker capable of making plays in space, and he’d easily make a team like the Hawks’ second line of defense better for the long run, being paired with fellow backer Jordyn Brooks in an attempt to make this linebacker corps one of the better ones within the division.
San Francisco would prefer not to see this sort of thing happen, especially if Harris winds up being one of Seattle’s two second-round selections.
