N’Keal Harry was a walking highlight at Chandler High School and Arizona State University. He’ll now try to bring that big play capability catching passes from Tom Brady after the New England Patrios drafted him in the first round with the 32nd pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
In two seasons with the Chandler Wolves, Harry had 1,464 receiving yards with 20 touchdowns. The five-star wide receiver and Under Armour All-American opted to stay in-state and play for Arizona State.
Harry wasted no time making an impact for the Sun Devils, starting in the first game of the year as a true freshman and scoring a touchdown.
When it was all said and done three seasons later, Harry ended his career third in Sun Devil history in receptions and receiving yards and fifth in career touchdowns.
Pro Football Focus took a deep look on Harry’s capabilities as a playmaker:
When isolating Harry’s play a bit further through the PFF looking glass, one thing immediately pops out: He tied to lead the draft class with 61 explosive plays of at least 15 yards over the past two seasons. Tying with Anthony Johnson, Harry did his explosive damage on 155 receptions over that two-year span on the same amount of targets as Johnson.
Harry is the first Sun Devil first round selection since Damarious Randall in 2015.
