WR N'Keal Harry was tarded a month ago to the Bears in exchange for a 7th-round pick. It was a very low-risk, high-reward trade made by Ryan Poles. The talent and athletic ability clearly are there.
However, Harry has failed to meet expectations since entering the NFL as a coveted prospect out of Arizona State. The 24-year-old caught 57 passes for 598 yards and four touchdowns in 33 appearances across three seasons in New England. He played in 12 games last season, finishing the year with 12 receptions and 184 yards with no touchdowns.
He certainly made a big first impression on rookie Velus Jones Jr. and offensive coordinator Luke Getsy.
"Man, he's like (one of) them Greek god structures," Jones said. "I would say like a Hercules."
Said Getsy: "You read about a guy and you're in the draft process and all that stuff, but when he gets in front of you you're like, 'Whoa. He's a big, thick dude.' I mean he's an impressive guy, but I'm even more impressed with his mentality (and) how he came in here."
Which is to adopt the attitude that he has what it takes to be a true difference maker in the NFL.
"I got a real chip on my shoulder," Harry said. "I'm looking to come in and do anything I can to help this team win."
Here is an example of just how big Harry is compared to the other receivers. This is crazy. My man is looking like a defensive end...
