First-round draft pick Najee Harris is feeling very comfortable in the Pittsburgh Steelers minicamp given that Steelers offensive coordinator Matt Canada's running game concept is similar to the ones used at Alabama according to Nick Farabaugh of Steelersnow.com.

“The inside zones, the outside zones, the power plays, the one-back power, the duo plays, so a lot of what they are doing in their offense resembles a lot of what we did [at Alabama]," said Harris.  Canada is expected to bring much more pre-snap motion to Pittsburgh's offense -- a much needed development after a season in which the team's offense often appeared stale and predictable. Canada's mix of gap and zone run plays and the addition of Harris should rejuvenate what was the worst rushing attack in the NFL last year. With no competition in the Steelers backfield, Harris could lead all running backs in touches this season.
