Desmond Harrison, LT
Desmond Harrison played like you might expect an undrafted rookie out of West Georgia to play.
He committed a couple of false starts, there was an illegal formation, and a holding call.
His first transgression, a false start, came four plays into the game.
During the first half, in particular, Harrison looked overmatched both rush and pass blocking.
But he played better in the second half, with teammates Joel Bitonio and Taylor complimenting his efforts in the third and fourth quarters.
Harrison’s stock may be down, but just a little because the potential is still there.
It was a rain game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He replaced a hall of famer.
Bitonio suggested the rookie might’ve been a little too excited, which would explain the penalties.
We’ll get a clearer picture of him as the season progresses.
Harrison’s rise from West Georgia to starting left tackle has been meteoric. He signed as undrafted free agent and missed some of Training Camp because of an injury.
Corbett, the 33rd pick in the draft, was inactive for the game.
