Not sure if anyone pointed this out already but here's a quick sidenote on Harris vs. Ezeh. I saw both of these guys play in high school and there was a clear difference between the two.
First, Ezeh was primarliy used (or successful) as a FB. He was so strong that he just ran through people but also had enough speed to hit the edges which made him tough to defend. Somewhat like Kevin Grady, but not as good in HS. He played LB, but wasn't spectacular. Actually against my school it was raining and he couldnt get any traction and did nothing because we stuffed the line. Either way...he was more of an offensive than defensive guy.
Next, David Harris was a beast already in HS. Against my team, he had at least 17 tackles and was all over the field. If the QB dropped back, he was there to sack him. He was literally everywhere on the field...we couldn't stop him with 2 or even 3 blockers some times. Now, it's amazing to see just how good he turned out to be, but I was not shocked to see him do well in college.
So...there was a clear difference between the two in high school. David Harris actually didn't even play RB when they played us. Not sure if he was just not rated well as a LB, but from what I saw, the guy was a stud already in HS.
Just thought I'd throw my observations in there...
