Ex-NFL Star Adrian Peterson Sends Clear Message About Najee Harris

Najee Harris is turning a few heads in the leadup to the 2022 NFL season. Even ex-NFL star Adrian Peterson is impressed with what he's seen from the former Alabama star. 

The Steelers drafted Harris with the No. 24 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. He went from Alabama to the NFL running out of the gate, finishing his rookie year with 1,200 yards and seven touchdowns with an additional 467 yards receiving and three scores. 

Stats aside, Harris is flat-out a beast. Even Peterson couldn't help but take a second look at the Steelers running back due to his size. 

"I caught myself a couple of times looking at him," Peterson said. I'm like golly, this boy's thick...and those big quads."

That's a pretty hilarious comment from Peterson, and he's 100-percent accurate. Najee Harris is a freak of nature, standing 6-foot-2 and weighing 232 pounds. 

Harris will try and continue the strong start to his NFL career later this fall.
