The last and final threshold for Jacob Harris is his production. If you were staring at a map of a shopping mall, production would be the point where the “You are here” arrow is pointing. Right now, it’s the final hurdle that Harris must overcome. Not only must he earn the right to play snaps for the offense, but must prove that he can produce when those opportunities come his way.

For Harris’ part, he was always a willing and coachable player. And amidst the friendly confines of shorts and tee shirts, his athleticism proved to be a significant advantage. But the NFL is unlike a track meet or the game of soccer, in that the real competition begins when the football pads go on, and contact starts.

But the preseason results for his on-field production did not meet expectations.  In three preseason games, he caught five of 13 passes for 45 yards. That was only a 38.5 percent catch rate, which is not enough to impress anyone. And that is where Harris must now focus on improving.

Harris has all of the right tools. In 2022, he merely has to pull them all together and produce.
