 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  Alabama running back Najee Harris sat down with a college football legend this week for one of the more candid conversations about his game. Appearing with Reggie Bush as part of FOX's college football coverage, the senior from the San Francisco Bay Area spoke freely about perceptions and some of his bigger plays. Harris was eager to talk about the way his 6-foot-2, 230-pound size is perceived. "Me being a big back, the assumption is OK, he's big so he's stiff, maybe," Harris said. "This is a typical stereotype. He's stiff. He can't make people miss that much. He's not fast enough so me using that, me training to work on all these things or me just hearing that, I train for all those things. So I am in the position in a route or one-on-one coverage...that's a perfect opportunity to show people, yes, I am a big back, but I can do everything that you in your days could do."

Bush, once a Heisman Trophy winner and national champion at USC, agreed with Harris before moving on to one of the Alabama back's signature play. The hurdling touchdown last season at South Carolina was one of the highlight moments of the full college football season a year ago. It came on fourth down and Tua Tagovailoa spotted Harris coming out of the backfield for a touchdown that included at least three broken tackles. "That team had a really good defense and there wasn't much happening in the run game so that's the perfect time to show I can be more of a threat," Harris said. "I was actually excited we went for it on fourth down because Saban was like, he was kinda iffy like 'I don't know if we should go for it.' So they showed me I had a burst route, so I'm like 'Whaaaat? This is the perfect thing." - Birmingham News
