Najee Harris Scouting Report | 2021 NFL Draft Prospect | Alabama RB

Najee Harris Alabama
Alabama running back Najee Harris is one of the best running backs to come out of the NFL Draft in the past several years. He is going to be a superstar.
  • Name: Najee Harris 
  • School: Alabama 
  • Position: Runningback
  • Height: 6’2
  • Weight: 230

2019 Statistics: 

  • 209 Attempts for 1,224 Yards 
  • 27 Receptions for 304 Yards
  • 20 Total TDs

When watching Najee Harris, you see he runs with great power and is an explosive back. Qualities that make running backs one of a kind is when they fall forward and fight for those extra yards which Najee is a talent that does just that.

He also has good size being 6’2 and weighing in at 230 pounds. His vision is something that separates him from others where he can see the hole before it’s even open, that and his cutting ability to stop on a dime makes his running ability special.

Najee Harris, being as big as he is, does very well at fitting into those tight holes to move the chains on short yardage situations. His balance is superb and he shows great instincts when running the ball.

Another attribute of his is he catches the ball very well making him a threat in more than just the run game. When it comes to concerns his weakness is pass blocking. Being in a passing league these days backs need to block to be able to stay on the field at all times.

A team that could use Najee Harris would be the Houston Texans. Having him team up with Deshaun Watson in the back field would be a threat that teams would have to watch out for since their passing attack is on a hot streak.
