FOXBORO -- Being a rookie, wide receiver N'Keal Harry has a lot to learn, but fortunately he has a lot of people around to help him out.
One of the people who he's been working with the most is Troy Brown, who has been around the team since the spring. With Joe Judge doubling up as both wide receivers coach and special teams coach, it only makes sense to have another person in place, especially for the young wide outs.
“He’s one of the greatest receivers who’s ever played here," Harry said of Brown following Sunday's practice. "I can take a lot from him. I’m going to keep asking him questions and keep learning from him every day."
Harry added: "He’s just teaching me how to be a complete receiver and how to take my game to the next level.”
The first-round pick has also saw extensive 1-on-1 time with Tom Brady, including this spring when he was invited to Brady's house to privately workout with the quarterback and Julian Edelman.
“It’s a big help having [Brady] out there helping me make it through training camp and just helping me clean up my details and make sure we’re on the same page,” Harry said. “… Just a lot of technique stuff, a lot of timing stuff. Things that are going to come the more that we’re on the field together.” Harry has had an up-and-down few first days of training camp, but that is expected of any rookie. His talent is quite apparent and it seems like the biggest thing is nailing down the playbook and getting in the right spots.
The Arizona State product is one of the few locks in at a very competitive wide receiver position.
