The star wideout from ASU started his combine learning he wasn’t as tall as he thought he was, but was able to remain focused and put up some impressive numbers at the combine.
Harry ran a 4.59 on his first run at the 40 yard dash, then his best at 4.54 and for his size that was remarkable, as he was not projected to run that fast from the outset.
N’Keal’s performance could very well land him in the first round in the draft as he ran the routes very crisp and had a broad jump of 10 feet 2inches, along with a vertical jump of 38.5 and showed off his strength by bench pressing 27 reps at 225 lbs, which is not bad at all.
This may have changed the thought of the home town Cardinals having a shot at Harry, because he was earlier in the process projected second round. If he stayed in the second round perhaps the Cardinals could have snagged him with the 33rd pick, but now he may go mid to late first round and the only way the Cardinals have a shot to get Harry would be through acquiring extra first round pick by trading the number one pick.
Only one team has the picks in early round and late in first round that’s the Raiders, and it would be ideal for the Redbirds to trade down and get Oaklands 4 and 24 for the number one pick. This would allow Harry to be a more realistic shot to remain in his home town Arizona.
But we all know the draft in any sport is a crap shoot and its a risk on every prospect, but after what I have seen with my own eyes of this N’Keal Harry, I think he gets close to a sure thing with the eye test.
