Syracuse fullback Adam Harris is eligible for the 2012 NFL Supplemental Draft which will take place on Thursday, July 12 beginning at 1 p.m. ET.

Harris suffered the third concussion of his career during a Nov., 2011, game against Cincinnati and was banned by the school from further participation on the team because of health risks associated with the accumulating number of concussions.

The 6-foot-2, 248-pounder reportedly sought a second opinion and was granted clearance by doctors from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and a neurologist who works with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

If Harris gets selected, he has already missed a crucial period in his development, as other rookies have already participated in mini-camps and OTAs. But he's determined.

Via Sports World Report:

"It's an intimidating process no matter how you approach the situation. I can only control the things that I can control. Those are effort and hard work. " Harris continued, "If teams give me a shot, great. If not, I'll be at pro days next year."

"When properly taken care of, concussions are just like any other injury. I've taken the proper precautions, done the things necessary to make sure that everything has healed properly before I returned."
