     they found a good one."The New England Patriots used the 32nd overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft to select 6’3 Shaq Mason Jerseys 2019 , 228 pound wide receiver N’Keal Harry out of Arizona State. The Patriots have a glaring need at wide receiver, but the Patriots had never taken a wide receiver in the first round with Bill Belichick at the helm.That’s clearly no longer the case. Here’s why Belichick and the Patriots decided to draft Harry.Impressive UpsideHarry’s measurables match-up to what you see on tape. He’s a big and strong receiver at 228 pounds with a 99th percentile 27 reps on the bench press. He has an impressive 38.5” vertical jump that he uses to pluck the ball out of the air. And he uses his 6.89s three cone to shake defenders and pick up yards after the catch. He’s a dominant athlete for his size. We’ll cover all of these factors later.But what’s super notable is that he’s only 21 years old and doesn’t turn 22 until December. Of the 76 wide receivers taken in the first or second round over the decade spanning 2009-18, 31 of them were 21 or younger on draft day (~40%). And yet of the 29 receivers to average 50+ yards per game in the NFL, 66% of them were drafted at the age of 21 or younger.Receivers aged 20-21 include Brandin Cooks, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Dez Bryant, DeAndre Hopkins, Davante Adams, Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry White Chris Hogan Jerseys , and Mike Evans. It’s not a perfect science, but generally receivers that dominate the college level at a young age are able to continue their success in the NFL and Harry is unrivaled in this draft class when it comes to producing at a young age.Fiery AttitudeThe Patriots need some strength at the receiver position with Chris Hogan now in Carolina with the Panthers and Harry has it in spades. Harry tied for the most reps on the bench press at the combine with 27 (only four other receivers surpassed 20) and that strength shows up on tape.Harry has a fiery energy to his game that is certain to mesh well with Julian Edelman as the Patriots receiving corps will make opposing defensive backs think twice before engaging against the run.Versatile Route RunnerHarry is a polished route runner with an expansive tree that should allow him to find a role in the offense on day one. Former Patriots’ exec Mike Lombardi says that Harry is “a legitimate receiver. That guy can play anywhere on the field, he can play F inside, he can play X outside, he can go inside and make the catch, and when the ball’s in his hands, he’s a beast. He can go get it.”Harry is capable of disguising his routes and shaking defenders just enough to create separation and he can do it from anywhere on the formation. He can line up outside and run a go route, or an in-route, or a comeback. He can do anything from the slot. Unlike some other receivers, Harry isn’t limited in what he’s able to run on every single play.Elite at Contested CatchesHarry is great at making sure the ball gets in his hands Chris Hogan Jerseys 2019 , even if he’s covered by a defender. According to Pro Football Focus, Harry had the third-most contested catches in college football over the past two seasons and “ranked first with a 57.5% contested catch percentage.” So if Tom Brady throws the ball up, Harry is likely to come down with it. not only are Harry’s routes clean to give Brady some separation space to work with, but Harry’s also able to make plays on the ball when that space doesn’t develop.Harry did struggle with some drops in the red zone this past season, but he also wasn’t given a lot of help from the rest of his offense.Dominant Yards after the CatchAccording to Pro Football Focus, no receiver has more plays of 15+ yards than Harry over the past two seasons of college football. Harry’s able to change direction on a dime, even though his size should prevent him from doing so, and he’ll always fight for extra yardage.Harry has a good feel for finding soft spots in defenses and gaining extra yards and has the balance to stay on his feet after contact. The Patriots can focus on getting the ball in Harry’s hands and letting him do the rest.And so there you have it. Harry is already great at running routes to generate separation, fighting for the ball when that separation doesn’t develop, and gaining extra yards once the ball is in his hands. His attitude is great and he has a ton of upside. What more could you want? There are a number of words you could use to describe Maroon 5’s halftime show performance: Empty. Boring. Basic. Sleepy. Skippable. Unfulfilling. Unnecessary.And those who came to help save the day didn’t do their jobs: If you blinked you would have missed that Travis Scott and Big Boi performed. Even the gospel choir singer was a struggle — clearly they let the wrong one sing lead Sunday.Adam Levine and friends kicked off the performance as fireworks burst from a stage designed like the letter “M White Eric Rowe Jerseys ,” which should have stood for “magic,” because they needed some.It started off on the right note, actually. “Harder to Breathe,” the band’s amazing debut rock song, was rousing as fire blasts shot from the sides of the stage. Levine grabbed his guitar for “This Love,” while other bandmates also strummed away.It was all going well until a joke was uttered: “A true musical genius who needs no introduction.”That’s when Scott rocketed to the stage. He tried to rap — most of it was bleeped out — in a circle of fire, but his inclusion felt more like an interruption. Scott performed his No. 1 hit, “Sickomode,” and Levine awkwardly danced beside him, which looked almost as bad as Katy Perry dancing next to Missy Elliott at Super Bowl 49.But there was one Scott highlight: He fell backward into the audience and faded away.The rest of the performance went downhill like Scott’s body did. Maroon 5 performed the very terrible hit “Girls Like You Eric Rowe Jerseys 2019 ,” making the already bad song sound worse by mixing in a gospel choir, led by a singer whose voice would make you walk out of church (sorry, girl).Each transition during the halftime show didn’t feel smooth, and Big Boi appearing on top of a car in a thick mink coat added to the bizarreness of the night.When he performed “The Way You Move,” it just made you wonder what Andre 3000 was doing at the moment. Watching? Sleeping? Probably sleeping while watching.You probably had similar thoughts when Scott was onstage and Drake’s vocals played at the beginning of “Sickomode” — wishing the show had a real superstar like Drizzy to give an epic performance.Those thoughts lingered again when Levine sang “Moves Like Jagger.” WHERE IS MICK JAGGER RIGHT NOW AND CAN HE PERFORM? Any of the Stones would do, actually.Who probably should have headlined the halftime show? Gladys Knight.She scored a touchdown with her rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner”: The legend’s voice shined brightly as she hit all the right notes ahead of the big game between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams.R&B sister duo Chloe x Halle were also in top-notch form: They harmonized like a veteran girl group as they sang “America the Beautiful” at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The group, nominated for two Grammys at next week’s show including best new artist, are signed to Beyonce’s Parkwood Entertainment.Noise and controversy surrounded this year’s Super Bowl since some have boycotted the NFL over treatment of Colin Kaepernick, the former quarterback who protested racial injustice by kneeling during the national anthem. Some performers declined participation in the Super Bowl as a result.
