Get To Know Ronnie Harrison

Ronnie Harrison

A popular trend in football seems to be that fewer and fewer defensive backs like delivering big hits. Well then, consider safety Ronnie Harrison old-school – he was even itching for contact during his scouting workouts. 

“Yeah, I definitely wish these drills were more physical,” he said. “All this running and jumping, that’s not real football. I want to get some of these guys in pads and see what they can really do.” 

Harrison’s play style is as aggressive as it gets on the gridiron, and when you tack on his considerable size, speed, and range, he was truly a beast unleashed during his three years patrolling the back end of Alabama’s defense. He should be picked pretty early during this year’s draft, and he’s sure to make one team very happy and 31 other offenses very nervous. 

We got a chance to do a round of rapid-fire questions with the playmaking safety before he hits the pro game. Check it out below: 

Q: What’s The Toughest Workout You’ve Done Recently? 

A: “I worked with Tony Villani – he has a workout he calls the SHREDmill. It was hard, but it helped with my speed. 

Q: Would You Rather Match Up Against A Bigger Or Smaller WR? 

A: “I feel like I can cover either one. But I would probably match up better against bigger WRs because of my own size.  

Q: Which WR Can You Not Wait To Face In The Pros?  

A: “Probably Julio Jones since he played at Alabama, too.” 

Q: Which Pro Has Given You The Best Advice? 

A: “I talk to Ha Ha (Clinton-Dix) a lot. He’s like my big brother.” 

Q: Which Player Does Your Game Most Compare To?  

A: “Sean Taylor.” 

Q: Speak Directly To The Fans Of The Team That Drafts You – What Type Of Player Are They Getting?  

A: “They’re getting a leader. I’m going to bring that passion and that attitude. I’m selfless and offer a lot of versatility and I love the game of football.”
