Alabama running back Najee Harris was featured prominently during the first drive of Saturday’s Iron Bowl against Auburn, and he made his efforts count.

Watch the dynamic playmaker get around the corner, then hurdle a would-be defender to gain the first down.

That’s reminiscent of the great Saquon Barkley, who’s now one of the best running backs in the NFL. Just a stunning display of power and athleticism. Harris’ efforts helped the Crimson Tide take an early 3-0 lead over Auburn Saturday.
