N’Keal Harry picked 32nd overall by the Patriots
Arizona State Sun Devils wide receiver N’Keal Harry has finally found a home at the next level. Having been compared to several other talented pass catchers throughout the spring, Harry has now been selected by the New England Patriots with the No. 32nd and final overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
With the Patriots having a tremendous amount of faith in him, Harry will join D.K. Metcalf, who shockingly went unselected in the first round, A.J. Brown and Marquise “Hollywood” Brown as marquee rookie wide receivers next season.
“Back-shoulder boss who thrives with contested catch opportunities outside the numbers but lacks explosive traits,” reads to his 2019 NFL Draft profile on NFL.com.
“Harry’s ability to body-up opponents and win with ball skills is undeniable, but his inability to find a threatening top gear or shake loose from tight man coverage must be accounted for within his new employer’s scheme. His experience playing inside should help and teams will love his impact as a run-blocker. His competitiveness and ability to come down with the ball could make him a productive member of wide receiver trio in short order.”
Slated to become an immediate impact player for the Patriots, Harry notably ran a sub-4.6 40-yard dash at the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine, while also putting up an impressive 27 reps on the bench press at this year’s event. Standing at 6-2 while weighing just shy of 230 pounds, Harry has the size and strength to quickly thrive at the NFL level.
