A Few Plays from #Alabama RB Najee Harris


Matt Waldman’s Rookie Scouting Portfolio shares three plays of Alabama running back Najee Harris and what sets him apart as a 2021 NFL Draft prospect. 

Najee Harris and Travis Etienne are the two running backs most NFL Draftniks mention at the top of the position’s talent boards. I have seen enough of Harris to appreciate his game, although I think a lot of the praise I’ve seen unintentionally uses supporting film work that vastly overstates his value.

Some of these clips laud Harris for press-and-cutback skills that you’ll find with the first 2-3 backs on 85 percent of the NFL’s depth charts for the position.

So here are three plays that will give you a more realistic understanding of what makes Harris a compelling prospect.

For the most in-depth analysis of offensive skill players available (QB, RB, WR, and TE), download the 2021  Rookie Scouting Portfolio for $21.95.  

Matt’s new RSP Dynasty Rankings and Two-Year Projections Package is available for $24.95

If you’re a fantasy owner and interested in purchasing past publications for $9.95 each, the 2012-2020 RSPs also have a Post-Draft Add-on that’s included at no additional charge.  

Best yet, a percentage of each sale is set aside for a year-end donation to Darkness to Light to combat sexual abuse.
