10 Players to Watch in Thursday’s Preseason Game
2 of 9
Charles Harris, Defensive End
Charles Harris, the first round pick in the 2017 draft from the University of Missouri, has been quiet so far in training camp. After having excellent practices in OTAs in the Spring, he has been unnoticeable since the pads came on.
This preseason will show the coaching staff how much playing time Charles will get in the season. He needs to maximize this opportunity against Atlanta’s backups and dominate.
He will need to show everyone he can have an effective pass rush while also proving he can stop the run, his weakness in college. This game will give him a chance to prove he can set the edge and use his iconic spin move to wreak havoc in the backfield.
It will be interesting to see if Charles will rise to the challenge or not.
