Pittsburgh Steelers RB Najee Harris was drafted to be a rookie year-ready three-down back, Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said in an interview. 'Najee is a well-rounded running back (who) played in a pro system,' Colbert told Pro Football Talk. 'He made NFL runs routinely, and he could also play in the passing game, both as a receiver and as a blocker. He's basically a three-down back coming from an NFL-like system, plugging into a similar type system. He made NFL runs at the collegiate level. He did it at a high level. He helped them win a national championship, so hopefully he can help us win some games.'
Huddle Up: Harris improved from four to 27 to 43 receptions over his his final three seasons at Alabama and is primed to deliver the top fantasy season from a Steelers running back since James Conner produced 1,470 total yards and 13 TDs in 2018. Harris is a solid RB2 target in fantasy drafts this summer.

Alabama RB Najee Harris was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers with the 24th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Huddle Up: Harris had been linked to the Steelers leading up to the draft, and he should immediately become the focal point of the rushing attack. Harris should see enough touches to safely finish as a RB2, and he is a candidate to be the No. 1 pick in rookie drafts.
