The New England Patriots have selected a wide receiver in the first round of the NFL Draft for the first time in head coach Bill Belichick's tenure with the team.
The reigning Super Bowl champions selected Arizona State wideout N'Keal Harry with the No. 32 pick Thursday night, giving quarterback Tom Brady another talented target in the passing game.
Harry tallied 73 receptions for 1,088 yards and nine touchdowns for the Sun Devils last season. He's listed at 6-foot-2 and 228 pounds.
