Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsWhile first-round pick N’Keal Harry has not yet joined the group of 2019 draft selections to sign a contract with the New England Patriots, he will do so soon enough. And the wide receiver, who was introduced to the media on the eve of the Patriots’ 2019 rookie minicamp, already has a use in mind for the approximately $10.1 million that his new four-year deal will be worth: he wants to use it in a charitable fashion.“[I want to] give back in any way that I can,” Harry said during the photo op and Q&A session inside Gillette Stadium yesterday. “Definitely help my family, help some people on the island. I feel like with this platform I’ve been given, it’s my duty to do something good with it. God has blessed me to be in this position. So it would be a disservice if I didn’t give back and if I didn’t show appreciation, so that’s my biggest goal.”The ‘island’ that the 22-year-old mentioned is St. Vincent and the Grenadines: while born in Canada, Harry’s family hails from the Caribbean nation which is home to not even 150,000 people. Until he was four years old — at this point, he moved to his grandmother Felna in Arizona — Harry was one of them, and now wants to give back to the tiny country and its communities.“I’m still trying to figure it out [what to do] but I definitely want to help,” Harry continued when asked about whether or not he already has a specific use for the money in mind. “I feel like there’s a lot of talent on the island and it doesn’t get seen. So whatever I can do to help, I’m more than willing to do that. I haven’t really explored it too much because there’s been so much going on but that’s definitely something I want to look into.”As he pointed out, his home country will not be the only benefactor of his future wealth. Harry’s family will also get a share — and one member of it was specifically mentioned by the rookie yesterday: the woman that effectively raised him.“She’s been everything,” Harry said about his grandmother. “There’s no way I would have been in this position if my grandmother wasn’t a part of my life. She’s been a great role model. That’s where I get my work ethic from White Drew Bledsoe Jerseys , just seeing how hard she works, seeing her come from a different country and having to start over. I really do know there’s no way I would be in this position without that woman.”Following the traditional introduction event, the Patriots published a short clip about Harry’s day on their social media channels: New England had contact with plenty of prospects over the last few weeks."Later today, the first round of the 2019 NFL draft will take place in Nashville, and the New England Patriots will be the final team on the clock courtesy of their victory in the Super Bowl three months ago. Who they will ultimately end up picking is up in the air given their current needs, draft capital, and the fact that the club had some form of reported pre-draft contact with dozens of players throughout all positions.Let’s take a closer look at those positions to find out which were the most active ones for the Patriots and who they have spoken to according to our pre-draft tracker — and what this might mean in the grand scheme of things. (S = Senior Bowl meeting; C = combine meeting; P = pro day meeting; W = workout; V = top-30 visit)Wide receiver: 16The Patriots were active this offseason when it comes to upgrading their wide receiver position, but as their pre-draft activity shows they are likely far from done. All in all, the team had reported contact with 16 players over the last few weeks — including potential early round targets such A.J. Brown, Deebo Samuel, N’Keal Harry, Riley Ridley, and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside. Beyond those five, combine standout Miles Boykin and slot targets Andy Isabella and Hunter Renfrow are names to watch.Defensive edge: 16After parting ways with both Trey Flowers and Adrian Clayborn earlier this offseason, the Patriots have shown a keen interest in this year’s edge defender group. Potential first-round prospects such as Clelin Ferrell and Montez Sweat had no reported contact with the world champions, however Drew Bledsoe Jerseys 2019 , which could mean that the club would rather invest in developmental mid-round options.Defensive tackle: 9New England’s defensive tackle group is solid as it stands right now — despite Malcom Brown and Danny Shelton no longer being a part of it — but players like Jerry Tillery or Dre’Mont Jones would still be good additions in rounds one and two, respectively. As is the case at the defensive edge, however, the bulk of pre-draft meetings were conducted with more developmental players.Tight end: 8The Patriots need to add talent to their tight end group after losing Rob Gronkowski to retirement last month — and their list of pre-draft contact reflects this. While top prospect T.J. Hockenson is not on the list, potential day one/day two options Noah Fant, Irv Smith Jr. and Jace Sternberger are. All three would add upside to the group, with Fant a particularly intriguing option given his outstanding pass-catching abilities.Quarterback: 5The Patriots don’t need to draft a quarterback with Tom Brady still showing no signs of slowing down. With the GOAT turning 42 in August, however, investing in a developmental passer would be a solid decision — especially if done in one of the mid or later rounds. That being said, spending a day two pick on Will Grier or Tyree Jackson could also pay dividends for the club.Running back: 5With Sony Michel, James White, Rex Burkhead and Brandon Bolden all under contract, the need to invest in another running back is a small one. Nevertheless, the Patriots did meet with some potential targets that might become interesting in one of the later rounds.Offensive tackle: 5While the Patriots face plenty of uncertainty at offensive tackle after losing Trent Brown in free agency, they have been relatively quiet when it comes to working out players at the position ahead of the draft. The biggest name among the five reported meetings certainly is Dalton Risner, who could come off the board on day one and would give the Patriots insurance in case 2018 first-rounder Isaiah Wynn is not yet fully recovered from his Achilles injury.Cornerback: 5Just like running back White Steve Grogan Jerseys , cornerback is a deep position on New England’s current roster: Stephon Gilmore was an All-Pro last year, while Jason McCourty and rookie J.C. Jackson both played at a high level. The Patriots also have 2018 second-round draft choice Duke Dawson and slot corner/core special teamer Jonathan Jones under contract, which means that the position is pretty set for 2019 and — with the exception of impending free agent Jones — beyond. The Patriots still took a look at some cornerbacks during the pre-draft process, however, with Rock Ya-Sin as the biggest name on the list.Linebacker: 4None of the linebackers who met with the Patriots this offseason is expected to be drafted early, and it would be a surprise if the team picked a player at the position in the first two rounds. After all, New England has a solid and still young core led by Dont’a Hightower and Kyle Van Noy together with Elandon Roberts and 2018 rookie Ja’Whaun Bentley.Safety: 4Nasir Adderley, Taylor Rapp, and Johnathan Abram are three of the top safeties in this year’s draft — and as such players to watch on the first two days of the event. While different in style, all three would be intriguing additions to New England’s group as rotational options and even potential heirs to Devin McCourty and Patrick Chung, respectively.Offensive guard: 3While right guard Shaq Mason is under contract through the 2023 season, his counterpart is scheduled to hit free agency next year. Consequently, the Patriots might opt to invest in a guard early this weekend to find a long-term replacement for starting left guard Joe Thuney. If doing so, Chris Lindstrom would be a logical target as one of the best interior offensive linemen the draft has to offer — a player who could also kick outside to play tackle.The main question with pre-draft meetings, at least when it comes to projecting what the Patriots will do, is whether or not they mean anything. Let’s take a look back at the last three years to find out how much pre-draft contact actually led to the team investing a draft pick or free agency check in a player.Last year Steve Grogan Jerseys 2019 , the Patriots drafted nine players — five of them had pre-draft contact with New England: first-round selection Sony Michel spoke with the club at the combine, while Duke Dawson, Christian Sam and Braxton Berrios all were brought in for top-30 visits. Furthermore, Keion Crossen was worked out privately by the club as well.While the team was in touch with the majority of its draft picks, it did not have any reported form of contact with a member of its undrafted rookie class.In 2017, New England drafted a league-low four men and spoke with half of them before the event: the team brought offensive tackle Antonio Garcia in for a top-30 visit and worked out defensive edge Derek Rivers at the Youngstown State pro day. Both Garcia and Rivers were later drafted in the third round.Besides meeting with the two future draft picks, New England also had contact with three players who would join the team as undrafted rookie free agents: defensive backs Damarius Travis and D.J. Killings both met with the team at their respective pro days, while defensive tackle Josh Augusta was brought in for a visit.In 2016, the Patriots were more active on draft day and picked a total of nine players. Of those nine, three met with the team before the draft: wide receivers Malcolm Mitchell and Devin Lucien as well as cornerback Cyrus Jones. Tight end Bryce Williams, later signed as an undrafted free agent, also had pre-draft contact with New England.As can be seen, the majority of players picked in the two previous drafts never had any reported meetings with the Patriots. Last year, however, was different as five of nine draft choices was in contact with the club at one point during the process. Could 2018 be an outlier or a general change in the club’s pre-draft behavior? We will find out over the next few days.
