College career:

Harry arrived at Arizona State as a much-hyped recruit. Both Rivals.com and ESPN tabbed him the #1 WR prospect in the 2016 class.

He cashed in on that promise quickly, making an immediate impact as a true freshman. Harry finished 2nd on his team in receiving yards and led the way in both receiving scores and receptions. In fact, his 58 grabs were tops in the entire country among freshman and also set a new Arizona State record.

2017 brought a breakout campaign. The sophomore finished among the top 14 in the nation in both receptions and receiving yards. Harry led the Sun Devils in all major receiving categories, accounting for 31.1% of the team’s catches, 34.4% of the yards and 38.1% of the TDs.

While his raw catch and yardage totals dipped a bit this past season, Harry improved his market shares. He recorded 32.0% of Arizona State’s receptions, 37.6% of the receiving yards and 47.4% of the receiving TDs. Those marks rank 3rd, 4th and 4th among 25 of this year’s top WR prospects.

Harry was a consistent force for the Sun Devils, registering 84+ yards in 9 of 12 games. He topped 100 yards 4 times and had outings of 2 and 3 TDs. Harry was also efficient, averaging 9.5 yards per target compared to 6.9 for the rest of the team — a premium of 37.7%.

On top of all that, he added punt-return duties to his resume in 2018, averaging an impressive 16.9 yards per attempt with 1 TD. He also chipped in on the ground over his 3 seasons, totaling 144 yards and 3 scores on 23 carries.

Harry is a contested-catch magician. His tape is chock-full of tight-quarter catches made with his imposing combination of size, leaping ability, body control and hands.




Harry dropped 3 balls in the 5 games I watched, but he also flashed a huge catch radius and some incredible hands.



Harry isn’t an elite separator. (He doesn’t need to be.) But he does possess enough change-of-direction and start-stop ability to fool defenders.


And DBs need to respect his downfield ability, so he’s able to work comeback routes.


Arizona State clearly made it a point to get Harry the ball in space. He carried 23 times over his 3-year career, returned punts this past season and caught a bunch of quick screen passes. His combination of size, power and speed makes him a weapon in the open field.




It’s also worth noting that Harry is a willing and effective run blocker. That doesn’t score us fantasy points, but it’ll help his chances of getting on the field early and often as a pro.


Fantasy potential:

Harry has all the tools to emerge as a #1 WR for his NFL team. He’s big and plays even bigger thanks to his ball skills and body control. He’s at his best in contested situations but also has the route-running chops against man coverage and the spatial awareness against zone to create ample separation. And he’s a weapon in the open field, whether it’s after the catch, as a ball-carrier or in the return game.

Harry checked the athleticism box at the Combine by earning an 88th percentile SPARQ score. And he’s 1 of the youngest WRs in the class, having just turned 21 this past December.

Landing spot will be a factor in determining Harry’s short-term upside, but his tool box should have him in the running to be the 1st WR off the board and a top-3 pick in dynasty rookie drafts.
