The former vice president of player personnel with the Jaguars, Harris will serve as a senior personnel executive with the Lions. According to a press relesae, he will assist general manager Martin Mayhew "in the day-to-day management of the player personnel department and .. in the player evaluation process for college and pro talent."
The Lions have two first-round picks in April's draft, Nos. 1 and 20.
