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.
Curious why you had Etienne going to the Bills instead of Najee in your latest mock. Also, if Najee slides to the second round, will he make it to the Dolphins' pick?
If he's on the clock at 24 I think the Steelers run to the podium.
Matt, how likely is it for us to see a running back going round 1 this year?
