5-10, 216: Is Nick Saban dumb?

Yeah, his Crimson Tide had a bad day against Clemson in Santa Clara, but and he might not be the life of any party, but he’s hardly known for making a whole lot of bad football decisions.

Josh Jacobs is everyone’s sweetheart running back in this draft, and yet it was Harris who was the team’s leading rusher over each of the last three seasons.

He’s faster than Jacobs, averaged more yards per carry last season, and he proved he could catch, too.

No, he doesn’t have the special cutting ability or violent style skills like Jacobs – or others on this list – but you know exactly what you’re getting. He’ll block, he’ll run for the tough yards, and he’ll be good enough to use as your value-pick starting running back for the next few seasons.

But what does Saban know about running backs?

Projected Round: Third
Real Value: Second
