So far in Training Camp, one of the best running backs for the New England Patriots has been Damien Harris.

One of the most interesting positions to watch so far in New England Patriots Training Camp has been running back. With Cam Newton at quarterback, it seems like we could see some new things from the position.

Now one thing is known, James White is going to get plenty of snaps. He could be one of Newton’s favorite weapons in the passing game. Besides that there is a lot of unknown.

Sony Michel and Lamar Miller are currently injured. Their status for the season is in question. If Michel is able to play one would think that he would get the bulk of the carries.

But after camp we have seen some players make some major impressions. Undrafted free agent J.J. Taylor has been great so far. It looks like he is etching out a role on New England’s final roster.

In addition there is Damien Harris. Harris struggled to get on the field in 2019 after getting drafted by the Patriots. He was basically redshirted for his rookie season.

Now Harris seems to have a great opportunity to get some playing time. Apparently, he is taking advantage of being one of the few healthy backs at camp.

The fact that Harris is being described as a top running back is quite interesting. When Michel comes back will that still be the same? Also, where does that leave James White? If I had to describe New England’s top back he is who would come to mind.

But the fact that Harris is being described in this way should get Patriots fans excited. We might really get to see what Harris is made of in 2020.

Next. What makes Julian Edelman a different player. dark

So keep an eye on Harris because he might surprise some people when the regular season begins.
