The Pittsburgh Steelers made a really smart business choice by determining to decline the fifth-year choice for running back Najee Harris.  It was the proper choice for them to make.  Harris just wasn't placing up top of the marketplace running back manufacturing prior to Jaylen Warren occurred.  With Warren out playing Harris the previous 2 periods, and mainly supplanting him as the passing down back, the price was exceeded by the advantage Jaguars Store.  What brought about this moment?The Steelers were hopeless to improve their running video game after the final thought of the 2020 season, and with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on the back 9 of his job, the group brass chose to start with a running back to enhance the hurrying attack.  Sadly, that was a mistaken way of reasoning, generally when constructing a ground video game teams usually begin with the trenches beginning with the offending line.  The Steelers though decided to go the contrary path beginning completely, electing to start with the running back first.  That's a bold approach let's see if it repays for chosen to compose Alabama running back Najee Harris with their first-round selection number 24, the extremely next option at number 25 saw the Jacksonville Jaguars select Clemson running back Travis Etienne.  Currently there are noticeable differences between the two, Harris being the much larger 232 pounds and a little bit taller being 6'1 the two vs Etienne who is closer to Warren a little bit lighter at 215 lbs and standing at 5'10.  The Steelers likely handed down Etienne because he didn't fit the size account they started to wander towards starting with Rashard Mendenhall, after that Le'Veon Bell, James Conner, and now Harris.  Harris being the larger much more conventional bell cow design running back under head instructor Mike Tomlin, rather than Etienne the smaller however shifter style running 's fine as for a choice, but guidelines are made to be broken so while choices are okay that should not stop a company from choosing a gifted player who's not rather what they're looking for.  Instead trying to compel the problem going with a player who may fit your account but does not always raise bench.  Harris versus Etienne Harris has an exceptionally physical design, he's not who a smaller defensive back wants to see outdoors when he's got a complete head of steam going.  He does not have trouble being made use of as a getting choice out of the backfield, or as a check-down choice.  Harris normally drops forward obtaining those tough backyards.  Harris is often available, he hasn't had that major leg injury as Etienne has had.  Harris is at his personal ideal when he's going straight ahead, and the offending line is getting a great raise front off the snap of the there are a lot of times though where he'll try to get as well cute attempting to stretch the defense side to side, and he does not have the rate or elusiveness to defeat quicker protectors to the sides.  He's not a fit when the offense is attempting to have fun with a quick tempo, or falls back on the scoreboard and requires to play hurry up.  For his size he does not always block well which is a little bit complicated.  His vision regarding complying with the blocks of his offending line is honestly negative, he'll bypass an open opening for a shutting one because he does not wait.  Harris hasn't consistently shown a determination when running the sphere, he dances way too much behind the line of scrimmage.  Going down a few pounds might help him enhance his rate a has a far more explosive primary step when he takes the handoff or gets the pitch from the quarterback.  Though both he and Harris were clocked at 4. 45 in the 40-yard dash at their particular professional days.  Etienne has a lot more side evasive ability than Harris does and can defeat protectors to the side.  He's determined after the handoff blowing up with the available openings made by his electrician.  He can be lined up out broad as a receiver and happy to tackle protectors as a blocker when they are hurrying the quarterback.  When comparing the two backs Etienne certainly has the edge in yards per lug, along with backyards per function.  But, he's revealed that at best he may be the leader of a board at running back.  Likewise, he's been bitten by the injury insect early in his young occupation.  Though the Jaguars grabbed his 5th year alternative where the Steelers declined Harris's choice.  Which once again makes far better prepare for the preliminary option in the 2021 NFL Draft Photo by Cooper Neill/Getty Images The Steelers had a demand at center along with at guard.  Currently Zach Frazier the Steelers 2024 2nd round choice may turn out to be the teams answer finally after Maurkice Pouncey retired.  However, Harris's college teammate Philadelphia Eagles guard Landon Dickerson sure would have looked great in the black and gold.  They made a decision though to bypass one of the leading centers in what was a shallow class, for a running back in the first-round when they had various other glaring demands.  That's just bad procedure to make that choice, unless the gamer is a generational talent at the running back position, with other needs specifically glaring ones need to be addressed entered into the 2021 period with an undersized, unskilled, newbie center in Illinois guard Kendrick Green.  The organization after that offered to increase down by not having a top quality alternatives a backup facility when Green naturally flopped.  At the guard position they selected a changeable journeyman in Trai Turner, dreadful.  The Steelers seem to go by the rule of we don't reconstruct we refill, which is great yet, you require to attend to needs when the problems are apparent.  They made three bad choices throughout the 2021 off-season and they have actually paid very much for them.  Najee Harris Steelers careerWell, he's had three straight 1,000-yard seasons, terrific let's throw a parade.  If you check out his mathematical stats has actually balanced a plain 64. 09 backyards hurrying per game across fifty-one profession games.  The most effective season that he has actually had as a lead runner surprisingly was his newbie season.  After that the Steelers went and located an undrafted gem after the 2022 NFL Draft in Oklahoma State running back Jaylen Warren.  Harris is statistically being beat by a former undrafted free representative, and Harris was a first-round draft selection.  That's inexcusable and not implied to price cut Warren at is a powerful, compact, and explosive runner.  He's reminiscent of a bowling ball however with limbs, and is an annoying blocker for protectors.  He's practically supplanted Harris as the Steelers third down back.  The group spent a first-round pick and even more guaranteed cash in Harris.  Yet when they require a conversion or a large play, its been Warren for them and not Harris.  Harris does some really good ideas, being an early down physical presence for the Steelers, he's a great group leader, an even much better person and does not turn the football over.  However with Warren playing his way into a 50/50 split with Harris and at as well lots of times looking like he's the much better runner, offering Harris an assured option of $6,750,000 wouldn't be a smart organization choice it's not personal it's merely organization.
