My friend is good friends with him (safety from Oregon), he said the Chargers are showing the most interest in him. Does anyone know where hes projected to go?

FS, Matthew Harper (Sr.)
Draft Projection: 5th Round
Height: 6-0 | Weight: 181

Harper is an instinctive defender who makes a lot of plays in the secondary. He's an outstanding athlete who plays well in coverage and is excellent against the run. He backpedals fluidly and takes good angles in pursuit. He has good sideline-to-sideline speed, flashes on the scene, and wraps up the opposition effectively. Harper is a former JUCO transfer who has really come into his own this season. He's been a steady defender for the Ducks this season and his stock is on the rise. With a good showing at the Scouting Combine and through the offseason, he has a chance to improve upon his mid-round draft status.

Harper sounds like a very interesting player. He fits exactly what the Chargers need at S so I can see the interest. It seems like every year there is at least one day 2 steal at safety. Maybe Harper will be next on that list.

He was the nations Defensive player of the week vs USC earlier this year with 2 INT. I loved the guy at safety, him and Patrick Chung I thought were one of the better duo safeties in the country
