    “Charles, in my opinion, is a very focused kid,” defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh said this week, via Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post. “I’m very excited about his approach to the game. Very detail-oriented. Obviously takes coaching very, very well. Implements it very quickly, as you coach him up, in games.”

    “Obviously, he’s been running with the ones and getting a lot of play time in our package that we like [to] run, in regards to pass rush,” Suh said regarding Harris. “He’s had a lot of good things, in my opinion, but everybody’s got a lot of work to do. We’ve got a long way ahead of ourselves.”

    This is good to hear. Hopefully he continues to improve and strengthens our defense.

    I wonder if Harris will join Suh and participate in his five weeks of hell to get ready for camp. I sure hope so. :)

    Coming from a player as talented, intelligent, committed to the game as Suh....this means a lot.

    Well we already knew Harris had the physical gifts like a vicious first step. But it's always good to hear they young ones have the needed work ethic, coachability, and burning desire to become the best. That's when draft picks start realizing their potential.

    Physical gifts justifying a first round pick + needed intangibles as described = high floor player

    2 years in a row we got the best player in the draft once all said and done. Welcome to the new Miami.

    I still question how he dropped to us in the first? That first step is special and honestly one i immediately compared to Wake when i first saw it and his spin move is also very special!! Two traits rarely seen even at this level in a college pass rusher at a now all time high premium position. So again i said wont be there!! Now to learn this kids work ethic, non stop motor, and passion to be the best we could end up with two of the top players in back to back years. I havent been this impressed with a first round pick in years and that is including Tunsil who i believe has hof potential!

    I love the comments on pft. I know what they are going to be before even scrolling down to them. That bills fan was classic. He was obviously being sarcastic but if you read between the lines a lot of what he said was true. His attempt to rip Ajayi is sheer failure as his squad was the one Ajayi did the most damage too.

    Can't wait to see what Harris adds to the defense. I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up starting at some point during the season and I think close to double digit sacks is possible.

    This time of year there is always optimism and pump up articles. So that is only at the back of the mind. What I get out of this one is that Suh seems to genuinely be impressed with the kid. No claims to greatness or anything of the sort. But Harris' ability and hunger to be coached was noteworthy to Suh. Phillips is a guy he has been trying to bring up, to generate the needed mindset, that hunger to improve. It seems Harris already possesses it.

    This is good to hear from Suh who I would imagine is giving Harris his due but at the same time keeping him humble because there is a long road ahead.

    His attitude and alpha disposition is a very large part of the reasons the Dolphins drafted him.

    Grier did not even hesitate - some teams were taking the full time to pick -even with trade offers the Dolphins hung up on those offers and went for a player they were VERY excited about.

    His talent is exceptional but then again so all of the top 30 to 50 players selected so physically gifted - some more than others - but all are super talented...

    This staff went for the work ethic and intangibles as a top priority because to be in Miami no one is on this team that does not grind it....All the time....

    I think Harris is going to be the guy that we thought we were getting with the third pick in the draft a few years back. I can't even bring myself to say that losers name. The speed that Harris plays with will effect plays all over the field.

    Well you can't coach quick and you can't coach work ethic so we are doing swell so far with Harris. Cool. Next up lets hope that our rookie linebacker can cover and our rookie defensive back Tank can tackle.

    This guy may not have a blazing fast 40 time but he sure has the required work ethic. I saw on twitter where he was working out with some training organization today doing drills. I have a really good feeling we got what will be one of the best edge rushers in this years draft. Watch your back Andre.

    It seemed that Andre stepped up his training as well as others.

    There's a great possibility that Harris takes his spot.

    He only had 5.5 sacks last year and was decent against the run.

    Keeping him was a good idea regardless of the money he got paid. (that's the going rate unfortunately)

    Harris will get between 5-8 sacks and by next year playing way more than this year.

    When you have a HOF like Suh praising your skills, you're doing something right.

    PHINS UP!!!

    Why did Marino and Tunsil to drop us? Rodgers drop to the Packers? Moss drop to the Vikings?...stupid rumors, and execs overthinking things.

    Though he proves to be an exceptional pass-rusher, against the run, he is the polar opposite. Yet GMs forgot to check a few more things, kid is extremely coachable, has heart, and he has the drive to become better at all cost, and work necessary to reach that point.

    Just being around successful people like Suh helps to inspire rookies to not only be good but be exceptionally good. The best.

    I was on the fence about Charles Harris, once it became known, just prior to the draft, he was one of the players Miami was focused on. I was caught off guard by the F/O being enamored by him; thinking he wasn't the prototypical 4-3 DE, in the mold of JT, Chris Dolman and Charles Hayley. I under valued him because of his size, lack of ability against the run and his underwhelming final year in college. But, as I began to read more about him, it became apparent he has an immense desire to be the best, a serious will to improve and the unrelentless grit and determination to dominate his position. There is something to be said about talent alone, but in so many cases, in sports, a player becomes one of the best due to his heart, unmatched desire and a never ending motor. Charles Harris in such a short period of time, although before the real games begin; has been what seems to be sensational!!!! I got nervous during the last few days of mini camp, after reading a tweet from Omar, figuring it is the kiss of death, about how Harris has stood out and could be something special? But everyone in Miami has taken notice of Mr. Charles Harris, let's hope he continues his journey and turns the NFL on its ears and dominates from the very start.
