Jacob Harris’ leaping TD grab elicits praise from Johnny Hekker on Instagram

Tyler Higbee was given the day off on Wednesday, along with several other Rams veterans. That created a great opportunity for Jacob Harris to step up at tight end, just as he did so many times during OTAs and minicamp when Higbee was absent.

Even as raw as he is, Harris is a mismatch for any defender that tries to cover him. Cornerback Dayan Lake learned that the hard way when Harris made a leaping grab on a fade in the end zone from John Wolford, coming down in bounds for six.

The Rams shared a video of the play on social media, which had fans excited.

Johnny Hekker also took note of the play made by the rookie tight end, commenting on the Rams’ post on Instagram. He simply wrote, “@jacobharris87 is a problem!”

Yeah, he sure is, especially for smaller defensive backs trying to cover him in the end zone. When it comes to jump-ball weapons, the Rams may not have anyone better than Harris right now.

He’ll be a fun player to watch during the preseason.
