    <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>INDIANAPOLIS -- Sometimes a college prospect can be a walking contradiction.</p> <p>But Virginia Tech cornerback <a href="http://insider.espn.go.com/nfldraft/draft/tracker/player?draftyear=2009&id=24107">Victor Harris</a> has no problem reconciling the nickname his dad gave him as a toddler and the script tattoo on his neck.</p> <p>Just call him a Macho mama's boy.</p> <p>We'll let him explain.</p> <p><strong>On the nickname</strong></p> <blockquote> <p>My father, he said I was 2 years old and I was very, very challenging. Riding my tricycle over people's feet and stuff like that around the house. So he just didn't want to name me a regular name, he wanted to name me a masculine name, a nickname, so he came up with 'Macho' and it stuck with me ever since.</p> </blockquote> <p><strong>On the tattoo</strong></p> <blockquote> <p>On Christmas Day my senior year in high school my mother passed away, and I was a Mama's boy, so I've got a tattoo of her right here [points at left forearm] and the mama's boy. I represent my mother.</p> </blockquote>
