Arizona State WR N’Keal Harry to visit Denver Broncos
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Denver Broncos will have a meeting with Arizona State WR N’Keal Harry before the 2019 NFL Draft.
Wrapping up at the annual NFL owners meetings in Arizona, Denver Broncos general manager John Elway made the trek to Arizona State’s pro day along with a number of other prominent executives in the NFL.
The main attraction at the Sun Devils’ pro day was wide receiver N’Keal Harry, a 6-foot-2, 228-pound monster at the receiver position who appropriately wore the jersey number ‘1’ in his time at ASU.
Harry is an alpha at the receiver position, a fiery competitor and potential number one at the NFL level as well.
So how did the pro day go? Well if this is any indication, it seems like things went extremely well.
We don’t know if the Broncos had this meeting scheduled prior to Harry’s pro day or not, but the timing of this news is interesting, to say the least.
Elway attends the pro day, then news of Harry’s visit to Denver pops up.
It’s likely the Broncos had chosen Harry as one of their top 30 visits prior to his pro day, but this certainly ramps up the intrigue, doesn’t it?
The Broncos have a need at the wide receiver position after last year’s trade of Demaryius Thomas and the season-ending injury suffered by Emmanuel Sanders, who is 32 and in the final year of his contract with the Broncos.
Harry is not the same type of player as Sanders, really at all, but is a phenomenal athlete who is more explosive and physical than he is quick and fast.
His 27 reps on the bench press at 225 pounds put him in the 99th percentile among wide receivers.
Though the Broncos’ apparent need is for speed at receiver, Harry is a possible WR1 in the NFL and would give the Broncos a talented, intriguing core of players with Courtland Sutton and DaeSean Hamilton already in place.
