2. WR N’Keal Harry
Harry came into training camp with no shortage of controversy following his trade request. All Harry had to do to either get his wish or quiet the noise was go and dominate in the preseason. Unfortunately, it looks like he is still struggling with the finer points of wide receiver play despite the fact he has a bit more spring in his step.
Harry played 36 snaps, which was the most of any wide receiver on the team, but he had just one catch for four yards in the game. With every poor performance, his trade value goes down, as does his chance of somehow jumping above Nelson Agholor or Kendrick Bourne on the depth chart.
N’Keal Harry hasn’t been playing very well for the Patriots…after practice.
Harry should’ve shown that he was way above the backups that Washington threw at him, but he looked just as scattershot and uncertain as he did during his first two seasons in the pros. His chances of sticking long-term in New England are starting to shrink thanks to his performances in the preseason.
He’s got two more chances to prove himself, but the fact that New England added Jonnu Smith and Hunter Henry means that they have the luxury of using primarily two tight end sets and leaving Harry on the bench. It’s on the Arizona State product to convince New England that he is worth making room for.
