The New England Patriots selected N’Keal Harry in the 1st round so why aren’t they making him a major part of the offense.
In Week 14 there was a lot to complain about. The officiating was horrible. They took a clear touchdown by N’Keal Harry off the board.

Harry made a great effort to get into the end zone. He showed exactly why the Patriots drafted him in the 1st round.
"“We know he’s big and not easy to tackle, and like I said, I need to do a better job of finding ways to get him in space, get him the ball and letting him have an opportunity to do those things,” McDaniels said"
These past two weeks Harry has only been targeted twice. You read that right. Harry is averaging one target a game.
It’s plain and simple the Patriots need to get Harry the ball more. He should be a major part of their offense. You don’t select a guy in the first round to have him sit on the sidelines.
I think Harry will be the future of the Patriots passing game. With Julian Edelman inching closer to retirement the Patriots will need a new No.1 receiver. Harry can be that guy.
Harry’s large frame and athleticism make him a dual threat. If you can get him the ball in space he can throw defenders off him and make himself almost impossible to tackle. If you throw the deep ball, Harry has the ability to go up and grab the most difficult of catches.
It’s rare for the Patriots to select a wide receiver in the 1st round. They must have seen something special in Harry. That’s why the team and Josh McDaniels need to use him more and not let him waste away on the sidelines.
