N’Keal Harry produced a bagel on Sunday, as in no catches. He committed a costly holding penalty, and his lone rush went for minus-2 yards during the 20-17 win over the Cardinals.
The wide receiver, who has just 24 catches for 213 yards and a touchdown on the season, has clearly not lived up to his status as a first round pick. He’s missed time, which hasn’t helped, but he’s played enough to have more of an impact than he’s shown.
On a conference call Tuesday, offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said that while he’s seen some “positive things” from Harry, the wideout still needs to get better.
“He’s got plenty of things that he can improve on, and plenty of things he needs to improve on,” McDaniels said of the Patriots 2019 first round pick. “And, so, the name of the game for young guys is to learn how to play and how to do their job at this level, and then to be able to be consistently dependable doing it against good competition under pressure is the next step for guys in this league.
“N’Keal works extremely hard at practice, and he has to continue to try to do that, and we have to continue to try to coach the things we need to improve and make better as we move forward the rest of the season we have left.”
