Report: Patriots interested in Arizona State WR N’Keal Harry
With Josh Gordon serving a suspension and Rob Gronkowski retiring, the New England Patriots are finding themselves very thin in their receiving corps.
That’s why the Patriots will likely use at least one draft pick on a wide receiver later this month, and Arizona State’s N’Keal Harry could be a candidate.
According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, New England is scheduled to meet with Harry before the NFL Draft. Harry has six visits lined up overall, so he is drawing considerable interest around the league.
Harry is coming off of a terrific junior campaign in which he hauled in 73 receptions for 1,088 yards and nine touchdowns. That was on par with his sophomore season, when he caught 82 passes for 1,142 yards and eight scores.
He also had a decent freshman year, snaring 58 balls for 659 yards while reaching the end zone five times.
Harry isn’t a speed demon, as he registered a 40-yard dash time of 4.53 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine, but he has good size, as he stands 6-foot-2 and weighs 228 pounds.
The good news for Harry is that the Patriots don’t typically go after athletic freaks at the wide out position, so he might fit right in.
New England is coming off of a 2018 campaign in which it won 11 games and captured the AFC East division title, marking its 10th straight division crown.
