One of the scouts that made theri way to Orchard Park for Buffalo’s pro day was UB Alumnus Andre Forde. Forde has been working for Tampa and has kept a keen eye on his Alma mater.
Just after the draft ended UB defensive end Demone Harris was signed as an Undrafted free agent by the Bucs.
After walking onto the team in 2013 Harris worked his way into a reserve position (2014) and then into the starting lineup, starting seven games, in his Sophomore year (2015).
In his junior season he played in all 12 games and started 11 at defensive end. When all was said and done he racked up 30 tackles and ranked third on the team with three sacks…
Harris completed his UB career with an all conference season. He lead the Bulls in tackles for loss with 9.5 and sacks with five. To that number he added 55 tackles and a pair of forced fumbles.
His Pro Day numbers were enough to win him a chance in an NFL camp.
- 40 was a 4.77
- 20 yd Shuttle 4.4
- Vertical: 32.5
- Broad Jump: 10’01”
Congratulations to Demone, and good luck in Tampa.
