Najee Harris Signs on with Beast Mode Marketing Agency
After accumulating 1,891 yards and 30 touchdowns in the 2020 season, Alabama running back Najee Harris is preparing for the NFL.
With the draft coming up in April, Harris announced via Twitter that he will be joining Marshawn Lynch's Beast Mode Marketing agency.
Lynch and Harris are both natives of the Bay Area and share similarities when it comes to their powerful running style.
"Beast Mode" was drafted with the 12th overall pick in the first round of the 2007 NFL Draft, by the Buffalo Bills. Najee "Cali Cruiser" Harris will hope to emulate this feat, he's currently listed as the top back in this years class.
In his first 2021 NFL mock draft, ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay has Najee being selected by the Pittsburg Steelers with the 28th pick.
McShay who has a reputation for finding gridiron stars, had high praise for Harris.
"Harris is different. His 1,387 rushing yards are third in the FBS this season, and he has averaged two scores on the ground per game. Speed, power, pass-catching and pass-protection ability, Harris brings it all."
In addition to signing on with a marketing agency, Harris will also be represented by Wasserman Sports Agency.
Wasserman was recently highlighted by Forbes in their annual ranking of sports agents and agencies.
Doug Hendrickson, Wasserman's top agent who's been in the business since 1999 will be working directly alongside Harris. Hendrickson has worked with several marquee names like 49ers DE, Arik Armstead, and Saints DE, Cameron Jordan. Both players have recently inked massive deals thanks to the expertise of Wasserman and all of its agents.
