2019 NFL Draft Prospect Profile: N’Keal Harry, Arizona State

2019 NFL Draft Prospect Profile: N’Keal Harry, Arizona State
Davis Mattek March 8, 2019 11:51AM EDT

N’Keal Harry 2019 Prospect Profile Scouting Report

There are not many prospects that are universally agreed upon in the 2019 NFL Draft class. The combine was particularly bad for some players that the group was high on and particularly good for others who were afterthoughts. What almost everyone can agree on, however, is that N’Keal Harry from Arizona State is the best wide receiver in this class and likely will be worth the first overall pick in your rookie dynasty fantasy football draft.

N’Keal Harry was a top-1o ranked wide receiver prospect coming out of high school and had multiple offers before he chose to play at Arizona State. PAC-12 wide receivers have a pretty good track record of being drafted in the NFL, so this choice makes sense. Harry played right away as a true freshman which is a huge plus for me. We tend to define breakout age as the first age where a wide receiver garners 30% or more of his teams’ market share but any an 18-year old can hold his own playing in a Power Five conference at wide receiver, I am crossing off boxes. Harry had 58 receptions as a freshman, which actually lead his team. The Arizona State Sun Devils weren’t any good, but it is still massively impressive for a true freshman to score seven touchdowns and lead a major NCAA school in receptions.

However, it was N’Keal Harry’s sophomore season where we really begin his profile as the best wide receiver in this class. For a team that threw just over 3,300 total yards, Harry racked up 82 receptions for 1,142 yards and 8 touchdowns while adding 13 rushing attempts. He accounted for 34% of Arizona State’s passing production at the age of 20 (and actually started the 2017 season at 19). Harry’s junior season was similarly strong with 73 receptions, 1,088 yards and 10 touchdowns (one via a rushing attempt). While at Arizona State, Harry scored a touchdown via punt return, rush attempt, receiving and passing! We know that there is a correlation between success on punt and kick returns and future fantasy football production in the NFL.

At 6’2″, 228, Harry has ideal NFL size and he did himself some favors at the combine. While not one of the true SPARQ starts like Jazz Ferguson or Miles Boykin, he proved that he meets all of the needed athletic thresholds. He ran a 4.53 40 yard dash which gives him an 89th percentile weight adjusted speed score. Several of the draft analysts from The Draft Network raised concerns with Harry’s work ethic and ability to generate separation but I do not share those concerns. Harry put on an absolute show at Arizona state with contested catches and was used effectively as a rusher and on screen passes. I have no doubt that Harry is ready to contribute for an NFL team as an X-wide receiver or a slot receiver on day one of his pro career.

N’Keal Harry Final Verdict

Not only is N’Keal Harry the best wide receiver in this class with a breakout age of 19 and a dominator rating above 30% in two separate seasons but he is also the top overall rookie in this class for dynasty fantasy football purposes. He is athletic enough to meet all the thresholds and was used in a variety of ways by his college team which flashes his versatility at the NFL level. He is almost certainly going to be the first wide receiver off the board in the 2019 NFL Draft and will be going in the first round. First-round wide receivers get a plethora of chances to prove themselves and Harry is up to the task.

Several teams in the first round of the draft do need help at the wide receiver position. I mocked JJ Arcega-Whiteside to the Indianapolis Colts in my first mock draft of the season but if Harry is on the board when the Colts select, he would be a no-brainer. A real X-wide receiver to pair with T.Y Hilton could deliver an edge to the Colts offense that they didn’t have when getting dunked on by the Kansas City Chiefs in the playoffs. The Miami Dolphins, with the news that they are expected to move on from Davante Parker, are another team that would do well in adding an assest of Harry’s caliber for the next four years while they search for a quarterback.
