Najee Harris is widely expected to go in one of the top two rounds of the 2021 NFL Draft, however, not all analysts seem to agree with that notion.
Speaking on “The Adam Schefter Podcast,” ESPN NFL insider Schefter read to the Alabama running back one of Todd McShay’s reports on him, and Harris did not like it.
What Mcshay said about him:
“Harris has excellent size and decent top-end speed. He was a much more decisive runner as a senior, showing oily hips for a big back and playing light on his feet. He gets in and out of breaks quickly, has excellent ball security and he’s a slippery runner between the tackles but he has acceleration limitations. Harris showed tremendous improvement as a pass-catcher in 2020 with a big catch radius and an ability to adjust to balls thrown outside his frame. He also shows good aggressiveness in pass [protection].”
“I think Todd McShay can kiss my ass,” Harris said. “How is he gonna say ‘He showed better production?’ I did not play my freshman or sophomore seasons, rarely, ever. I didn’t have an opportunity to show I could catch.
“It’s not ’cause I can’t, it’s ’cause I wasn’t in the game to show people I could catch. So let’s just stop looking at the stat sheet and watch the game.”
Harris pointed out that he led the country in receiving touchdowns. He had 304 yards on 27 receptions (11.3 yards per catch) that year and 425 yards on 43 catches as a senior.
Harris is considered to be a top running back prospect in the 2021 NFL Draft.
