Najee Harris 2021 NFL Draft Scouting Report

Name: Najee Harris Position: Running Back College: Alabama Height: 6’1 ⅞” Weight: 230 lbs Overall Rank: No. 19 overall Position Rank: RB1 Strengths: A powerful, productive runner with an NFL frame and three-down ability. Harris can run with power and motor over defenders but he also shows a smoothness to his game with agility to bounce runs outside the tackle box. He’s known for leaping defenders but he’s capable of putting them on the ground, too. A high-character, well-mannered player who returned for his senior season; Harris showed improvements in the passing game in 2020 and leaves Alabama as a well-rounded, three-down player. He’s a talented short-area runner with power, burst and creativity as a ball-carrier. Ball security is not an issue. Harris knows how to follow his blocks to daylight and is the definition of an NFL-style runner with a blend of power, agility, and vision. In the passing game, Harris showed in 2020 refined hands but perhaps most importantly an ability to handle pass-rushers as a blocker.
