The Pittsburgh Steelers got their guy in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft when they selected Najee Harris, running back out of Alabama. After the pick was made, Steelers fans were excited to welcome the newest member of the organization. Some of the organizational excitement was caught on tape, and is worth sharing.

Check out head coach Mike Tomlin’s first call to Harris letting him know he is now a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers:

Harris was spending the evening at a draft party in Oakland, CA and the Steelers media was able to speak with the talented running back during his party. You’ll even see Marcus Peters, cornerback of the Baltimore Ravens, crash Harris’ press conference at one point.

Needless to say, Harris isn’t just a tremendous player, but seems to be every bit the tremendous person.

There was another famous Harris who wanted to welcome Najee to the Steelers organization, and it just happened to be the man who is in Cleveland, OH, for the NFL Draft, to announce a Steelers draft pick. Here what Franco had to say to the young, but big, running back.

If those videos weren’t enough, it is always great to hear the boos of the Cleveland Browns fans when it was the Steelers’ turn to pick. Check out Roger Goodell take to the podium to announce the selection.

Below is the press conference with Mike Tomlin and Kevin Colbert talking about their selection of Harris after the pick was made:
