The New England Patriots selected wide receiver N'Keal Harry out of Arizona State with the 32nd overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft.
The Patriots entered the draft with a huge need at receiver and helped fill it with the former Sun Devils star whose game has drawn comparisons to a young Dez Bryant.
The selection made Harry the first wideout chosen by the Patriots in the first round since Bill Belichick became the head coach in 2000.
Harry earned a pair of All-Pac-12 nods over his three-year career with the Sun Devils. He hauled in 73 passes for 1,088 yards and nine touchdowns as a junior in 2018.
Harry and Oklahoma's Marquise Brown were the only two wideouts drafted in the first round Thursday.
School: Arizona State
Weight: 228 lbs
Harry is a physically imposing receiver who moves very well for his size. He's a scheme-versatile prospect who projects as a classic X receiver or in a big slot role. Concerns over his speed and athleticism were silenced after an excellent combine. Harry's route running - particularly his feet - needs a bit of fine tuning, but the first-team All-Pac-12 wideout has a number of high-level traits to develop into a potent offensive weapon.
