Harrison Hand, Temple
Harrison Hand is a physical corner who will likely play on the outside in the NFL. He brings good size and a physical nature to the cornerback position. Hand is a solid tackler and is not afraid to light someone up.
Hand plays his best is in zone coverage, where he lets his football IQ and awareness shine. He plays with a physical play style and has the potential to fight for a starting spot on special teams, which is needed with the departures of Adrian Phillips and Derek Watt.
Hand had an overall solid combine performance. Even though he only ran 4.52 in the 40-yard dash, he finished inside the top four for all defensive backs in the vertical and broad jump.
Hand excelled in zone coverage in his first and final season at Temple with five pass breakups and three interceptions. Hand plays at his best when he can see the play unravel in front of him. He is good at reading a play, reacting and making a tackle.
Harrison Hand does not have elite speed, but with the depth that the LA Chargers secondary has, Hand can mainly play in zone coverage and rotate with Michael Davis when it comes to man
Hand is very solid against the run and is not afraid to make a big hit. He plays with a very physical play style and is a secure tackler. With all of the top cornerbacks off the board heading into day three of the NFL Draft, Hand could be one of the Charger’s targets late in this year’s draft.
