N'Keal Harry looking forward to working with demanding Tom Brady: 'I want to get coached hard'


FOXBORO -- One of themes with Tom Brady is how demanding he is with his wide receivers.

The Patriots offense is extremely complex and the wide outs are asked a lot to be on the same page as Brady at all times, especially when it comes to timing routes. That could be part of the reason why rookie receivers struggle to produce in New England, but N'Keal Harry is hoping to break the trend.

Speaking at Gillette Stadium Thursday, Harry said he doesn't mind how hard Brady is on his pass-catchers because that is what he likes.

“That’s something I’m looking forward to,” he said. “I’m the type of player that wants to get better. I want to get coached hard, so I’m looking forward to that.”

Harry joins a wide receivers room that isn't exactly stacked at the moment.

Besides him there is Julian Edelman, Phillip Dorsett, Harry, Demaryius Thomas, Braxton Berrios, Maurice Harris, Matthew Slater, Damoun Patterson, Jakobi Meyers, Ryan Davis and Xavier Ubosi.

Selected No. 32 overall, became the first receiver selected in the first round in the Bill Belichick era.

“It means the world to me,” Harry said. “This is a great organization. I feel like I couldn’t have been put in a better situation. I’m learning from the best of the best, and I’m just excited to get to work and just soak in as much information as possible.”
