Josh McDaniels explains the ‘next step’ for WR N’Keal Harry
As the New England Patriots look for more production from the broad receiver position, offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels wants more of N'Keal Harry, the sophomore receiver.
Harry has recorded 36 catches for 318 yards and three touchdowns. The draft selections for the first round of 2019 have not exactly met his bill recently.
Take a look at the Seattle Seahawks Wide Receiver D.K Metcalf. Metcalf has received 359 yards in his last four games. Harry has 318 yards in 16 games in two seasons. There are certainly differences in these numbers.
Still, McDaniels has confidence in the young recipient.
"I think N'Keal did some things - certainly some positive things that have helped us over the course of the games he has played," he said. "And I think, like most of the young players who missed out on time early in their careers, he has a lot of things that he can and needs to improve."
“The name of the game for young boys is learning how to play and how to do your job at that level, and then being able to consistently stand up to a good competition under pressure is the next step for Guys in that league. ”
It will be interesting to see if the wide receiver can even increase production this season. A thin group of broad recipients could certainly benefit from a powerful N'Keal Harry.
