I believe he was the #8 overall. He wasn't a workout warrior either, he was highly productive at Alabama and won every award a LBer can win. Posted decent numbers in Oakland. I mean, he's not Patrick Willis but he'll be an upgrade over Bart Scott.

Bart Scott's decline has been Harris' decline. And our D's.
I don't want Mcclain for different reasons. But I think Scott, THomas, and Pace's declines are all reasons for our front 7 sucking this season. When our run defense was good, Bart Scott was great at blowing up the run and BT/Pace were great at setting the edge. All of them are old and have been awful this season. All of them won't be on this team next season.
