Draft season sometimes brings out the worst in us.
While Najee Harris is widely viewed as the best RB in the 2021 NFL Draft, don’t be alarmed if he slides on Todd McShay’s next mock. It’s not that Harris’ stock is falling, but the mock drafter may reload the film now that Harris has told him to kiss his ass.
On Adam Schefter’s podcast, Harris took offense when Schefter read Todd McShay’s player profile, which said Harris showed “improvement” as a pass-catcher in 2020.
“I think Todd McShay can kiss my ass,” Harris responded.
Well, there you have it.
“How is he gonna say, ‘He showed better production’? I did not play my freshman or sophomore seasons, rarely, ever,” Harris goes on.
“I didn’t have an opportunity to show I could catch. It’s not ’cause I can’t. It’s ’cause I wasn’t in the game to show people I could catch. So let’s just stop looking at the stat sheet and watch the game.”
If you read between the lines, Harris isn’t buying McShay’s analysis.
This is the problem with making money as a draft expert. You get crushed even when you pay a player a compliment. I haven’t seen McShay fire back yet, but for the sake of content, I remain hopeful.
