Bills Take Nic Harris in 5th Round

Oklahoma Sooner Football Articles and Notes

Buffalo Bills select Nic Harris No. 147 overall: Oklahoma safety Nic Harris was viewed as a linebacker by some NFL talent evaluators and a safety by others. The Bills see him as a linebacker and that's where he'll play after the Bills made him their fifth-round pick (No. 147) on Sunday."He's a linebacker for us," said Bills scout Shawn Heinlen. "He's a very versatile player. He's played safety, corner and started at middle linebacker in an emergency role against Kansas State. He played outside linebacker at the Senior Bowl and I think that's where we see him best fitted for our defense." For Harris, who has played cornerback, free safety, strong safety and linebacker in college, moving to linebacker full time is not seen as a problem. "It's doesn't bother me at all," said Harris. "It's a great opportunity to come out and play and whatever the coaches want me to do I'm willing to take a shot at it. I'm extremely elated for the opportunity to come out and play."
