2019 NFL Draft Profile: N'Keal Harry

One of the most elusive receivers in college football this season, N’Keal Harry finds himself at No. 61 on the latest PFF Big Board. He will look to continue his upward trend, as he improved his overall grade in each of three seasons at Arizona State, as he enters the NFL.

One of Harry’s biggest strengths is his 6’2” frame, which he uses to high-point the ball. He totaled 17 contested catches, which was T-2nd in the draft class. His ability to make the most of each catch stood out as well with 32 explosive plays (20+ yards) where he used his long arms to fend off defenders after the catch.

Another strength is his ability to use his hands to get away from coverage and find open space in the middle of the field. When targeted between 10-19 yards this season, Harry posted 5.68 yards per route run and a 112.3 passer rating which led to 17 receiving conversions (first downs plus touchdowns).

A potential weakness in Harry’s game is his focus at the catch point which led to an 87.9 percent catch rate this season, which was T-61st in the draft class. This weakness reared its head in the red zone specifically, where he was targeted 13 times and only brought in four catches for a 79.8 passer rating.
