It didn’t take long for the former Alabama standout to make an impact in the pros.
After being selected 24th overall in the 2021 NFL Draft, Harris finished his rookie season with 1,667 yards from scrimmage and ten total touchdowns.
More importantly, he did not suffer a fumble throughout 307 carries and 74 receptions.
Harris also played all 17 regular season games and suited up for their postseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Coming into his second season, Harris isn’t resting on his laurels.
Instead, he is still working twice as hard, as shown in this video.

Harris was still putting in the work after practice by running up a hill.
That shows the energy and passion he has for the game and the Steelers will benefit from that.
He would like to avoid a sophomore slump by putting in the hard work even if it goes beyond the practice hours.
Coming into the 2022 season, opposing teams will now have a ton of game tape to review his game.
Despite that, he would like to come out stronger than ever.
Harris The Dual Threat
He could not care less about the way the Steelers’ offense uses him.
That’s why he continues to contribute regardless of their attack.
If it ain’t broke, head coach Mike Tomlin won’t fix it.
Therefore, expect Harris to have an effect on the passing game even if they found George Pickens in the second round of the 2022 draft.
Running hills after practice will make him more explosive in flat routes during games.
His success will be vital in the Steelers’ return to the playoffs after the Ben Roethlisberger era.
