There is a great deal of excitement in the Pittsburgh Steelers fan base for what they have planned for 2023. Under the guidance of head coach Mike Tomlin, the Steelers always seem to be able to put on a good product on the field. The team has also demonstrated an ability to draft and develop players in an effective manner. It has even been said by Colin Cowherd that (he thinks) the Steelers have a top-five roster going into 2023.
However, despite all the preseason hype, one reporter has been able to come up with one major change they may make to their offense.
Could The Pittsburgh Steelers Demote Running Back Najee Harris In 2023?
ESPN analyst Dan Graziano has predicted some surprises for each of the 32 NFL teams going into the 2023 season. As far as the Steelers are concerned, Graziano explained that that star running back Najee Harris could lose the RB1 role to Jaylen Warren:
“Yes, Najee Harris was the team’s first-round pick in 2021. Yes, he has been a productive and reliable No. 1 back in his first two years, even as the offense overall struggled…So Harris is still firmly in the Steelers’ plans and opens the season as their top back.
But Warren’s performance in practice and games has demanded a larger role for him than what Pittsburgh had planned a year ago. He has shown the ability to spell Harris whenever asked, and he has actually looked more explosive in some areas.
Unless Harris looks more like the 2021 version of himself than the 2022 version, Warren’s opportunity could increase dramatically as the year goes on. Warren, a 2022 undrafted free agent, took 77 carries for 379 yards last season.”
Najee Harris accrued 1,034 rushing yards and 229 receiving yards last year, along with 10 touchdowns. Despite being a rookie in 2022, Jaylen Warren generated 379 rushing yards, as well as 214 receiving yards. Many fans have speculated that Warren averaging almost a full yard more per carry than Harris did last year could lead to a change in the backfield.
