Alabama working again Najee Harris is broadly anticipated to go in one of many prime two rounds of the 2021 NFL Draft, although, in line with some analysts, he’s imperfect (as are all NFL Draft prospects).
ESPN draft man Todd McShay feels as a lot, saying that, amongst different issues, Harris’ pass-catching capacity improved in 2020 and that he lacks acceleration capacity.
Speaking on “The Adam Schefter Podcast,” ESPN NFL insider Schefter learn to Harris certainly one of McShay’s principally constructive — but additionally kinda destructive — scouting reviews, with which Harris took situation.
“I believe Todd McShay can kiss my ass,” Harris stated. “How is he gonna say ‘He confirmed higher manufacturing?’ I didn’t play my freshman or sophomore seasons, hardly ever, ever. I didn’t have a possibility to point out I may catch.
“It’s not ‘trigger I can’t, it’s ‘trigger I wasn’t within the sport to point out individuals I may catch. So let’s simply cease wanting on the stat sheet and watch the sport.”
Harris has some extent. In 2019 his seven receiving TDs as a working again earned him the report for tops in Crimson Tide historical past, notching one other 4 touchdowns by means of the air in 2020.
Harris is taken into account to be a prime working again prospect within the 2021 NFL Draft, thought of both the No. 1 or No. 2 again beside Clemson’s Travis Etienne.
