Cons:

  • Shares a backfield

 

Overall

Damien Harris, the other part of the Alabama backfield, is a very complete back. For his size he is very agile and he has some speed to pull away from defenders. He is very tough to bring down in the open field and has a nice burst when hitting a hole. His limited opportunities from sharing a backfield and poor pass protection could make him start off as a 3rd down back at the next level. However, Harris has the potential to be a starting work horse running back in the NFL once he can better his pass blocking. The Bama back is looking to be a second-round pick.
