STRENGTHS: Joe Giles-Harris is one of the smarter football players in the entire 2019 Draft…very high football IQ…diagnoses the play rapidly and makes the play accordingly…quick read and react skills…outstanding tackler—if he gets his hands on the ball-carrier, he is making the play…wraps up consistently…uses his hands very well…able to get off of blocks with proper fundamentals…non-stop motor on Giles-Harris…plays to the whistle and never stops…
