N’Keal Harry makes too much sense for Ravens at pick 22
As the 2019 NFL Draft gets closer, it’s becoming easier to connect some teams and players together. This could become N’Keal Harry and the Baltimore Ravens.
Stop me if you’ve heard this before: The Baltimore Ravens are in desperate need of wide receiver help. How about this: The 2019 NFL Draft has talented wide receiver prospects that could entice Baltimore. Let’s put it all together now: The Baltimore Ravens should consider drafting Arizona State’s wide receiver N’Keal Harry.
This has become a routinely made pick for the Ravens in mock drafts, but it makes tons of sense. Considering the level of talent that N’Keal Harry possesses, as well as the team’s complete lack of expertise at the position, it seems to be a match in heaven. Well, maybe Harry thinks so, too, considering the young man shared a photoshopped picture of himself in a Baltimore Ravens uniform on Friday:
Before you say anything, this obviously means nothing of substance. Maybe a fan sent Harry this and he simply thought it looked flashy. Maybe Harry saw it somewhere on the internet and shared it for fun. Or, maybe Harry simply likes the idea of playing for the Baltimore Ravens.
Seems like a weird thought, considering that few (if any) wide receivers would wilingly come to play for the Ravens. A large part of the reasoning is because of Baltimore’s pedestrian passing attack and a run-heavy offensive philosophy. Honestly, you can’t really fault these guys. Still, someone will eventually come in and realize that they’d have the spotlight all to themselves as the team’s X-receiver.
Perhaps N’Keal Harry could have something like that in mind with the Ravens. After all, the Arizona State Sun Devils’ offense has been powered through the run game, both by their running backs and quarterback. Moving to Charm City wouldn’t be a dramatic difference for him, and he’d be getting a significant upgrade at quarterback.
One would think that the Ravens would be doing their homework on the upcoming wide receiver class, and N’Keal Harry would easily be near, if not at, the top of it. This is common knowledge, but seeing Harry share that picture via his Instagram is interesting, if nothing else. No one can deny, however, that Baltimore could draft him in the first round and surprise no one.
With each passing day, more picks are coming into focus and more players have “perfect” landing spots that make too much sense not to happen. N’Keal Harry to the Baltimore Ravens may begin to pick up steam here soon, as it falls into that category of a match made in heaven.
