The Patriots needed to add a wide receiver and they found a good one."The New England Patriots used the 32nd overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft to select 6’3 http://www.patriotslockerroom.com/authentic-danny-shelton-jersey , 228 pound wide receiver N’Keal Harry out of Arizona State. The Patriots have a glaring need at wide receiver, but the Patriots had never taken a wide receiver in the first round with Bill Belichick at the helm.That’s clearly no longer the case. Here’s why Belichick and the Patriots decided to draft Harry.Impressive UpsideHarry’s measurables match-up to what you see on tape. He’s a big and strong receiver at 228 pounds with a 99th percentile 27 reps on the bench press. He has an impressive 38.5” vertical jump that he uses to pluck the ball out of the air. And he uses his 6.89s three cone to shake defenders and pick up yards after the catch. He’s a dominant athlete for his size. We’ll cover all of these factors later.But what’s super notable is that he’s only 21 years old and doesn’t turn 22 until December. Of the 76 wide receivers taken in the first or second round over the decade spanning 2009-18, 31 of them were 21 or younger on draft day (~40%). And yet of the 29 receivers to average 50+ yards per game in the NFL, 66% of them were drafted at the age of 21 or younger.Receivers aged 20-21 include Brandin Cooks, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Dez Bryant, DeAndre Hopkins, Davante Adams, Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry Derek Rivers Jersey , and Mike Evans. It’s not a perfect science, but generally receivers that dominate the college level at a young age are able to continue their success in the NFL and Harry is unrivaled in this draft class when it comes to producing at a young age.Fiery AttitudeThe Patriots need some strength at the receiver position with Chris Hogan now in Carolina with the Panthers and Harry has it in spades. Harry tied for the most reps on the bench press at the combine with 27 (only four other receivers surpassed 20) and that strength shows up on tape.Harry has a fiery energy to his game that is certain to mesh well with Julian Edelman as the Patriots receiving corps will make opposing defensive backs think twice before engaging against the run.Versatile Route RunnerHarry is a polished route runner with an expansive tree that should allow him to find a role in the offense on day one. Former Patriots’ exec Mike Lombardi says that Harry is “a legitimate receiver. That guy can play anywhere on the field, he can play F inside, he can play X outside, he can go inside and make the catch, and when the ball’s in his hands, he’s a beast. He can go get it.”Harry is capable of disguising his routes and shaking defenders just enough to create separation and he can do it from anywhere on the formation. He can line up outside and run a go route, or an in-route, or a comeback. He can do anything from the slot. Unlike some other receivers, Harry isn’t limited in what he’s able to run on every single play.Elite at Contested CatchesHarry is great at making sure the ball gets in his hands Womens Cordarrelle Patterson Jersey , even if he’s covered by a defender. According to Pro Football Focus, Harry had the third-most contested catches in college football over the past two seasons and “ranked first with a 57.5% contested catch percentage.” So if Tom Brady throws the ball up, Harry is likely to come down with it.https://www.profootballfocus.com/news/dr...g-play-weaponSo not only are Harry’s routes clean to give Brady some separation space to work with, but Harry’s also able to make plays on the ball when that space doesn’t develop.Harry did struggle with some drops in the red zone this past season, but he also wasn’t given a lot of help from the rest of his offense.Dominant Yards after the CatchAccording to Pro Football Focus, no receiver has more plays of 15+ yards than Harry over the past two seasons of college football. Harry’s able to change direction on a dime, even though his size should prevent him from doing so, and he’ll always fight for extra yardage.Harry has a good feel for finding soft spots in defenses and gaining extra yards and has the balance to stay on his feet after contact. The Patriots can focus on getting the ball in Harry’s hands and letting him do the rest.And so there you have it. Harry is already great at running routes to generate separation, fighting for the ball when that separation doesn’t develop, and gaining extra yards once the ball is in his hands. His attitude is great and he has a ton of upside. What more could you want?

Despite having to deal with numerous injuries over the course of his career, the defining tight end of his era still appeared in a combined 131 regular season and playoff games for the team and was one of the toughest matchups in all of football year-in and year-out: a powerful yet nimble receiver that was also able to block like an offensive lineman.Simply put, Gronkowski was the complete package at the tight end position. Given his retirement announcement earlier this offseason, the Patriots will now have to find a way to operate without contributions from the future Hall of Famer. For New England and its offensive unit, this means plenty of adjustments given that Gronkowski was an every-down player no matter if the situation called for a run or a pass. “He’s had an incredible career,” said quarterback Tom Brady when asked about the 30-year-old after Thursday’s final minicamp practice. The veteran passer also pointed out that his absence will certainly have an impact on the team. “It’s the first time in a long time and he was such a great player for our team. Like any season, things are different and we’re going to have to adjust differently and teams are going to play us differently without him.”“We’ve seen it even when he’s been on the team,” continued Brady when talking about how Gronkowski’s presence alone put pressure on opposing defenses in the past: he regularly drew double coverage or other forms of special attention, which in turn opened things up elsewhere — be it for other pass catchers or in the running game. Now, teams will no longer have to fear Gronkowski’s big play abilities and can therefore start focusing on other areas.As a result Stephen Gostkowski Jersey , the Patriots will need to adjust and find ways to still put pressure on opposing defenses even without their most talented weapon of the last decade. “No one’s going to make any excuses for our offense. We’re going to do everything we can to be the best we can be, score every time we touch the ball,” said Brady. “The tight end position’s a big part of our offense and those guys are going to have to do a great job for us.”‘Those guys’ are all relatively inexperienced in the Patriots’ (current) offensive system: Matt LaCosse, Benjamin Watson and Andrew Beck were all added over the course of the offseason, while Stephen Anderson and Ryan Izzo are entering their second year in the system. Unless the Patriots add another player to the equation at a later point, this is what the post-Gronkowski tight end group looks like.Brady, however, does not seem worried about the comparative lack of pedigree. “The other guys are getting up to speed, Matt’s done a good job, Ben’s done a good job Womens Duke Dawson Jersey , Stephen Anderson’s done a good job,” the 41-year-old said. “That’s got to be a position of strength even if it’s not one player but multiple players doing different roles. There were times in my career before that where we had similar approaches.”Seeing New England use a tight-end-by-committee approach — something the team does at the running back position as well — would not be a surprise. With no clear-cut top option available right now (to be fair, though, LaCosse has stood out during minicamp and might be seen as TE1 at the moment) trying to get the most out of each individual’s skill sets seems like a sound plan; one that could help the Patriots counter what defenses will attempt against them moving forward.For Brady, however, the focus is on the task currently at hand — and his message is a clear one: “This team has to establish something differently,” he said on Thursday. “All the players have to come in and earn a role. That’s what this week is all about.”
