Offensive/ Special Teams “X- Factor”: Dwayne Harris

One of the players that really stepped up his game last year was receiver and return specialist Dwayne Harris.  It seemed when quarterback Tony Romo needed him the most, he would deliver and make some amazing catch and runs throughout the season. While his role as a receiver was beneficial, it was his play on special teams that really impressed me. In 13 games last season, he returned 28 kicks for a total of 857 yards. He was averaging 30.6 yards a return and his longest return was 90 yards. His punt return skills were even more impressive, as he returned 20 punts for 256 yards and a touchdown. He also did well on cover teams, including some big momentum changing hits on the opposing team’s returner. Harris also missed time due to injuries, which hurt the special team overall. The Cowboys really didn’t have another guy that can be as dynamic as Harris. Harris is a factor on this team that can totally change a game in the Cowboys favor. If he is healthy, look for Harris to be the one to set the tone for games.
