Eagles set to visit with wide receiver N’Keal Harry
The Philadelphia Eagles are continuing to look at a variety of wide receivers in the upcoming NFL Draft, and will reportedly host N’Keal Harry for a pre-draft visit.
According to Ryan Dunleavy of NJ.com (per 247 Sports), the Arizona State wide receiver will be meeting with the Eagles sometime prior to the draft. This marks the second receiver the Eagles have looked at. They also brought in Ole Miss receiver A.J. Brown for a visit.
Considered one of the top receiving prospects in the draft, Harry’s numbers attracted attention. At the NFL Combine, the 6-foot-2, 228-pound receiver ran a 4.53 40-yard dash, had a 38.5-inch vertical jump, and posted a 122-inch broad jump. Those combined numbers were good enough to place him firmly in the top rankings of receivers, so he will likely be going fairly high on draft night.
After making waves in his sophomore season, Harry really blew up and burst onto the scene last year, when he posted 1,088 receiving yards and hauled in nine touchdowns. His incredible on-field speed and ability to catch contested passes wowed onlookers; some of the plays he made last season were incredibly spectacular. For a team like the Eagles — which likes to air the ball downfield — a wide receiver who can go up and pull down contested catches is a huge plus.
Potentially combining Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, and N’Keal Harry, along with Nelson Agholor, would suddenly make the Eagles’ receiver corps one of the best in the league, and give quarterback Carson Wentz a near-endless supply of talent to throw to.
