Strengths

Physical possession receiver with a muscular frame. Strong and tough. Great hands. Snatches the ball out of the air. Knows how to win in traffic. Makes plays with defenders on his back. Superb body control. Tracks the ball well and adjusts. Has experience out of the slot. Gets open on in-breaking routes from any position. Can sell double moves with some shake. Extremely elusive and crafty after the catch for his size. Good contact balance. Used on short screens, jet sweeps, and wildcat runs to get the ball in his hands. Effective punt returner. Good downfield blocker. Shredded a tough Utah defense for 9/161/3 last season.

 

Weaknesses

Doesn’t create a ton of separation on the outside. More of a body catcher on downfield passes. Not as explosive/bouncy as the athletic profile suggests on jump balls. Plays slower than his 40 time. Highlight reverse-field runs likely won’t work against NFL speed.

 

NFL comparison

Anquan Boldin – There isn’t really a straight-up comp for N’Keal Harry that I feel good about, as he’s basically a souped-up Jarvis Landry; historically, I think Boldin fits best as a physical possession receiver that could be a dominant No. 1 option in the right spot.

 

Conclusion

Overall, N’Keal Harry is a notch below the other top receivers in this year’s class for me, but he should be a reliable target that can make plays down the field or by simply getting the ball in his hands near the line of scrimmage. Considering the depth at the position, though, I would let another team take Harry in the first round.

I liked him at first, but other guys in the draft are better.
