Ranking the top 10 Pittsburgh Steelers heading into the 2021 NFL season
By Sam Ouhaj
9. Najee Harris
I know it is crazy that I am putting a rookie in the top ten players without him even playing a snap but, Najee Harris deserves it. While taking a running back in the first round is questionable, the Steelers went with the best player available, and it looks that it is paying off so far during OTAs and camp.
Najee Harris is an exciting young prospect who will almost certainly be considered among the league’s best running backs by the end of the season. At the same time, it may be a few games for him to get settled with the pace of the NFL. Harris opens up the Steelers’ offense to so many opportunities because of his skill set.
I am thrilled to watch Harris this season, and who knows, if he can bring home Rookie of the Year over Trevor Lawerence, Zach Wilson, or Justin Fields, he may be among the Steelers top three players at the end of the year, though let’s not get carried away just yet.
