The New England Patriots have a new wide receiver for quarterback Tom Brady to play with: with the 32nd and final pick of the 2019 NFL draft’s first round, the reigning world champions drafted Arizona State wide receiver N’Keal Harry. The 21-year-old gives Brady a much-needed receiving weapon in the light of Rob Gronkowski’s retirement and the positional turnover that happened so far during the offseason.
The second wide receiver to come off the board yesterday, Harry is a lock to make New England’s roster and over the next few weeks will be given every chance to carve out a substantial role in the team’s offense. Naturally, the rookie will be under a microscope all summer — and really all season — long as the first wide receiver to get drafted in the first round by Bill Belichick’s Patriots.
