Senior De’Jon Harris leads all returning SEC linebackers in run-stop percentage according to Pro Football Focus.
Harris had a run-stop percentage of 11.3 last season.
That mark is considerably ahead of runner-up Missouri linebacker Cale Garrett who was at 9.4. The remaining top five were Tennessee’s Daniel Bituli (9.3), Florida’s David Reese (9.2) and Ole Miss’ Mohamed Sanogo (8.5).
Harris led the Razorbacks in 2018 with 118 tackles, including 62 solo, and had nine tackles for loss. He had two sacks, five pass breakups, two quarterback hurries, one recovered fumble and forced one.
Harris opted to bypass the 2019 NFL Draft and return to Arkansas for his senior season.
