Alabama's running back, Damien Harris, is one of the best players at his post in the NFL draft class in 2019, and he currently expects to be a late pick in the first round or the first round. beginning of the second round in April.
The New England Patriots will certainly not use their first-round pick of 2019 on the half after choosing Sony Michel in 31st place overall last year. Michel played very well in his first season and set a playoff record with six touchdowns, including the only TD in the Super Bowl LIII win in New England over the Los Angeles Rams.
However, if Harris were to fall in the repechage or if the Patriotes saw the interest in taking it, it would not hurt to think of taking charge of the talented running back. And judging by his comments Thursday at the 2019 NFL Scout Jumpsuit in Indianapolis, it seems like he would be delighted that Bill Belichick has designated him.
"The Patriots are obviously an excellent organization," says Harris told reporters. "People like to compare them to (Alabama)." Coaches Belichick and (Nick) Saban, everyone knows that they are very good friends. "People like to think that they run their programs the same way. way, get out of Alabama .It would be an easy transition, so I do not know it.I hope to have the opportunity to meet them, just like the 31 other teams. "
Harris totaled 878 yards (5.8 per race) with nine touchdowns, plus 22 receptions for 204 receiving yards. He has averaged more than four yards per race in Alabama's last three games – the SEC championship game and two playoff games.
Harris would be a good choice for the Patriots' attack, but they have more pressing needs than to turn around, including a tight end, a wide receiver and a few defensive positions.
