WATCH: Former Alabama RB Damien Harris rips off impressive 20-yard run against Titans
Former Alabama running back Damien Harris found a sweet NFL landing spot with the New England Patriots.
The Patriots drafted Harris in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft. The former Alabama back had a chance to enter the draft after the 2017 season, but he elected to return for his senior season.
Harris and the Patriots are playing a preseason game against the Tennessee Titans Saturday night, and Harris nearly found the end zone for his first NFL touchdown. The best part about the run was the incredible vision on the cutback to the right.

Nice cut/vision by Damien Harris on his first big gain as a pro. He had a lot of these kind of runs at Alabama. pic.twitter.com/lbR7HUmajT

Harris was the only Patriots rookie who didn’t see the field in last week’s preseason game. He was out with a hand injury, but he appears to be fine now.
