The New England Patriots entered the 2019 NFL Draft with a need a wide receiver.  With the 32nd selection, they addressed that need in the form of Arizona State’s N’Keal Harry.

In 2018, Harry totaled 73 receptions for 1,088 yards and nine touchdowns with the Sun Devils. Harry is not particularly twitchy or explosive. However, he is a big bodied receiver that might just end up being exactly what the doctor ordered for the New England receiving corps.

The 20-year-old, 6’4″, 213 pound receiver offers a unique combination of size and strength.  He is a big red zone threat with underrated quickness, that will provide Tom Brady with a threat to make athletic and contested catches when needed. Harry was also very versatile in the Sun Devils’ special teams.  He spent time as Arizona State’s punt returner, which also drew interest from the Pats.
