As great as college football is, the National Football League will carry some entertaining games this fall.

After another interesting NFL Draft, a few experts at ESPN have started predictions for Offensive Rookie of the Year.

Najee Harris (Pittsburgh Steelers) and Jaylen Waddle (Miami Dolphins) are among the popular names. Both players helped Alabama football capture a national championship in 2020.

Harris and Waddle were both selected in the first round.

Harris ended his collegiate career as the Crimson Tide’s all-time leading rusher. Waddle was one of college football’s most electrifying playmakers at wide receiver and return specialist.

Harris expects to become a 1,000-yard rusher for the Steelers, while Waddle is about to elevate the Dolphins’ passing game. Both were taken by AFC teams, so it will be fun to see what happens.
