N’Keal Harry, a Vincentian American football wide receiver, is named N’Keal. He is currently a member of the Chicago Bears of the National Football League. Previously, he played college football for Arizona State, where he received first-team All-Pac-12 honors twice. In the 2019 NFL Draft, Harry was drafted by the Patriots.
Since joining the Patriots in the 2019 NFL Draft, Harry has not had much impact on the team. He has played in just 35 games, with two playoff games. Harry has rushed eight times for 56 yards and caught 59 passes for 619 yard in his two seasons. However, he has never been a starter and remains a question mark in the offense.
Although he didn’t get to experience the Patriots’ offense fully as a rookie, he showed glimpses of potential. Harry displayed great physicality during training camp, catching 19 contested catches which was third in FBS. In addition, he showed some flashes of skill while being used in jump-ball situations and designed plays.
N’Keal Harry was traded by the New England Patriots to the Chicago Bears in this offseason. The terms of the trade have not been disclosed. Harry entered the NFL as a first-round draft pick, the 32nd overall selection. He played in 33 regular-season games and recorded 57 receptions for 598 yards and four touchdowns. He played in two playoff games and had two receptions of 21 yards.
As a rookie, Harry had limited production compared to his draft pedigree. He was injured reserve in 2021 with a shoulder injury. However, he was unable for the remainder of the season due to a hip problem. He played in nine games in 2020 and had 33 catches for 309 yards, two touchdowns and a 59% catch rate. While he did not have a great year in the NFL, his emergence in Chicago will provide renewed opportunities. He will have an opportunity to work with new quarterback Justin Fields, and will be able to contribute to a depth chart that is wide open.
N’Keal Harry has been traded to the Chicago Bears for a seventh-round pick in 2024. The Chicago Bears have made a great deal, saving $1 million in cap space. The Patriots also get a seventh-round pick in 2024, which will be a valuable asset for the future.
Harry was a top-five Patriots pick in 2013 and has a solid pedigree. He has four touchdowns in three seasons, and he should improve on that in 2019. He also has a solid wide receiver group. While the Patriots didn’t lose any of their productive wide receivers from the past two seasons, they added big-framed technician Devante Parker and speedy Z-receiver Tyquan Thornton to the group. The team also has Jakobi Meyers, Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne, who are all reliable.
