    Najee Harris is SPECIAL

    The more I study Harris the more I like him. 6 foot 2 230 but terrific balance due to thick lower half. Despite not being a blazer he has elite athleticism and short area quickness. His feet remind me of Bettis. The way he microsteps to find cracks in the D is old school Bettis. He has terrific hands, power for days--guy is an absolute bulldozer. His vision and patience are elite. He will be a VERY special back in the NFL. And I pray he is our pick.

    I agree and think if Harris is still there when we pick at #24 that he will be our selection.
    Steel Maniac predicted no RBs would be chosen in the 1st round, so of course we selected:

    1(24) Najee Harris RB Alabama

    Wouldnt make me mad either, that said if both are available, I would rather have Etienne. He has insane speed. Homerun type speed.

    Eiienne does have home run speed. Who's better could depend on the man calling the plays, and OL blocking style. Do you want a chain mover, or a guy who's is easier to stop, but might hit a homer more often. I'd be happy with either player.

    Plan to spend 75 million in cap space in 2022 ( most in the NFL ) and use the 2 comp picks ( 3rd and 5th ) for a killer 2022 draft. We will be back hopefully with better coaching.

    I think it would be nice to have a RB that wont get caught from behind once he is past the LB's. Been quite a while since we had that type of speed at RB

    I think he’s a better prospect coming out than Henry was.

    I think so too, even though I would generally prefer not to draft a RB because it's kind of a luxury pick.

    But it should ultimately depend on how the team views the value of the actual player, not the position. So I'll be OK if it happens (even though I hope someone else takes him off the board first)

    He'd be a nice Toy
    But I'm thinking OT and OC in the first 2 rounds. Ben and our future QBs will need them.

    If Harris is there at 18 to 20 , I think we will think about moving up to get him. I believe he is the back the Steelers covet. He will be our 1st rd pick. Connor is now gone and Snell is not a bellcow guy.

    My preference would be to get a free agent back (they are cheap) and go oline in the draft. But as we are not pursuing free agents, I agree we are looking to draft one.

    As our cupboards will be so bare I won't hate the pick if it is a back.
