If there’s anyone who can judge the wide receiver position, it’s a former NFL wide receiver.

And based off the judgement of former ASU wide receiver N’Keal Harry by Nate Burleson, Harry is destined for a successful professional career.

The NFL Network analyst and 11-year NFL veteran said on his “Bur-Lesson” segment of Good Morning Football that he expects Harry to be a “monster” in the NFL.

Harry is a potential first round pick in next month’s NFL Draft after a successful three-year career in Tempe.

“With all these things being said about wide receivers and this not being a ‘wide receiver’ draft, keep your eye on this guy,” Burleson said of Harry.

Burleson broke down several of Harry’s top collegiate plays, including his circus catch against USC and long touchdown run against UTSA.

He was impressed by several things about Harry, from his speed to his strength to his field awareness.

A strong performance at the NFL in which he ran well (4.54 seconds in the 40-yard dash) and showcased his strength (a position-best 28 bench press reps) should only help Harry’s stock.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported earlier in the week that Harry will meet with the Arizona Cardinals on Monday and will also visit other teams ahead of the draft, which begins April 25.
