By Kevin Duffy | [email protected] | Boston Herald April 26, 2019 at 12:02 am For the first time since taking over as Patriots coach and general manager, Bill Belichick has drafted a wide receiver in the first round. The Pats nabbed Arizona State’s N’Keal Harry with the No. 32 pick, the final selection in Round 1. Harry fills an obvious need in New England. At 6-foot-2, 228 pounds, he’s a big, physical presence on the outside. He excels on contested catches, using his frame and raw strength to beat defensive backs. Harry impressed at the NFL Combine, running a 4.53 40-yard dash while pumping out 27 bench press reps. He caught 73 passes for 1,088 yards in his junior season at Arizona State. Entering tonight, the Patriots were the only team in the league that hadn’t taken a wide receiver in the first round of any draft dating back to 2000. The Patriots must wait 22 picks to make their first selection in the second round. They hold the No. 56 overall pick, which was acquired in a trade with Chicago a year ago, and pick again at the No. 64 spot.
