The 2021 draft does not look to have too many top tier RB prospects in it - but Najee qualifies as one of those. He is a power back that is explosive off the blocks (though perhaps without too many gear shifts once he gets up there) and who has been an impressive performer throughout his career. Harris has decent hands and is comfortable catching the ball (which is an increasingly important trait in a RB in today's pass happy league). One question mark raised over his skill set though is his pass blocking and that is an area to develop.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
