Arizona State WR N’Keal Harry has a pre-draft visit with Seattle Seahawks
The Seattle Seahawks’ future at wide receiver is uncertain. Their primary option, veteran Doug Baldwin, is set to undergo sports hernia surgery. It is unknown if he will be ready for Week 1, and how much he will be able to produce out of the gate.
Instead of gambling on Baldwin’s health, the Seahawks may elect to go younger at the position in the upcoming draft. This was all but confirmed when reports surfaced Thursday suggesting that Seattle has their eyes on one of the best wide receivers available.

N’Keal Harry was a standout at Arizona State University in his junior year. The 21-year-old totaled 1,098 yards and averaged 14.9 yards per reception. He scored 10 touchdowns and pulled off an incredible 92-yard punt return against the University of Southern California.
Harry does have his flaws. Despite his explosiveness, he can be sloppy at times and isn’t the most agile player. But he was named to the All-Pac-12 first team each of the last two seasons and is a true impact player.
Seattle’s depth chart lacks any reliable punch beyond Baldwin, who might even be considering retirement. While not their top priority, it seems likely the Seahawks will add a wide receiver through either free agency or the draft.
Last season, the Seahawks finished second in the NFC West with a 10-6 record. This earned the team a playoff spot, but they were bumped in the first round by the Dallas Cowboys. If they can make just a few small upgrades this offseason, perhaps they can pull off a deeper postseason run.
