2018 NFL Draft: Top 10 RBs New York Giants should target
By Henry Buggy
#8 -Alabama RB Damien Harris
Many analysts expected Scarbrough to be the Crimson Tide’s lead back in 2017 after finishing the last season with four impressive performances. But Harris is the one that has stolen the show in Tuscaloosa this season.
Alabama’s 5-foot-11, 221-pound tailback leads the Tide with 906 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground. Harris is averaging 8.2 yards per carry and can surely boost his draft value with an impressive performance against Clemson in the College Football Playoff.
Kiper has Harris listed as the fifth overall running back in this year’s class, and NFL Draft Scout’s senior analyst Dane Brugler also recently gave high praise to the Tide’s lead back, via 247Sports.
"“If Damien Harris declares, he has a good chance to be a top-five running back, one of the top-five running backs in this class.”"
