MIA Harris falls off Kiper's 'Big Board'

ESPN's NFL draft guru Mel Kiper has published his latest "Big Board," and it no longer includes Oregon cornerback Cliff Harris.

That leaves five Pac-12 players on the board: Stanford QB Andrew Luck is No. 1, USC OT Matt Kalil is No. 3, Stanford OT Jonathan Martin is No. 6 , USC QB Matt Barkley is 10th and Arizona State LB Vontaze Burfict is No. 11.

Harris was 23rd last week on the 25-man list. Otherwise, no conference player moved up or down.

Harris was suspended early in the season and has seen only limited action even after returning, as he appears to be in coach Chip Kelly and defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti's doghouse for on- and off-field issues. He has four tackles and two pass breakups.

Oregon hosts California on Thursday. You might recall Harris played a key role in last season's meeting in Berkeley, with a 64-yard punt return for a TD in a 15-13 victory.

Perhaps Harris will re-appear this week?
