Dwayne Harris was just another small school afterthought because he did not have that standout quality NFL teams usually want to see out of players who have not had the opportunity against great competition. He wasn’t blazing fast, a size mismatch and not overly impressive athletically. He was a good player without the game tape to warrant starter consideration. He’s gone the route of most of those types, starting on special teams and having to earn his role in the offseason. He opened eyes this offseason.
While Kevin Ogletree was the early-season beneficiary, it was Harris that opened eyes during camp. Glowing reports streamed in from Cowboys sources, and Harris made their word look good by blowing up the St. Louis Rams for three catches and 118 yards with Tony Romo under center against the Rams’ first string. Harris’ August performances made it easy for the Cowboys to make room for him on the 53-man roster as they began to think of ways to get him involved in the offense.
The targets have come in too – he’s seen 16 targets in the last three games and turned them into eight catches for 115 yards. If Dez Bryant were to miss any time, Harris would be the beneficiary outside with Ogletree moving into the slot. His part time role (36 snaps against Cincinnati) would likely extend to 60-plus and include more red zone looks, too.
