The 2019 NFL Draft is known to be a great year for defensive talent, but one of the offensive positions that does not look particularly strong is wide receiver. There is not an elite prospect at wideout, and the 2018 season has not seen a player come out of nowhere to be a break out as a top-of-the-draft candidate. One wide receiver who has garnered some media buzz is Arizona State’s K’Neal Harry. The big wideout has been productive for the Sun Devils and possesses good size. Team sources, hoever, are grading him on the second day of the 2019 NFL Draft.
The test for any big receiver is how well they run and if that translates to the speed to separate from NFL cornerbacks. That sounds like that is the big issue with Harry and what could hold him back as a pro.
“[Harry]’s not twitchy or fast and will have a hard time separating in the NFL,” said one scout. “He has inconsistent hands as well. He’s more of a Day 2 guy, and he’s similar to Devin Funchess.”
The 6-foot-4, 213-pound Harry has 42 receptions for 572 yards and five touchdowns this season after hauling in 82 catches for 1,142 yards and eight touchdowns in 2017. Funchess was a second-round pick for the Carolina Panthers, and it sounds like Harry could go on Day 2 as well in his draft.
