NFL Draft night is very exciting for players because they're realizing their dream of becoming a pro, but the event also brings with it a lot of stress and anxiety as more and more picks come off the board.

Arizona State wide receiver N'Keal Harry went through many different emotions during the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft in May. Harry, as one of the top wideouts in the class, was expected to be selected in Round 1, but as more and more teams in need of a wide receiver passed on him, the probability of him slipping to Round 2 went higher.

At one point, Harry even said "I'm about to throw up." 

Overtime chronicled Harry's draft night with friends and family and released a great video showing the rollercoaster of emotions he experienced throughout Round 1. Check it out below: 

Sometimes we forget about the hard work and the challenges these players overcome to get to the NFL, but watching the emotion Harry and his family shared when the Patriots selected him at No. 32 was a pretty good reminder.

Harry's next challenge is building chemistry with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and the rest of the team's offense. The rookie is getting plenty of reps in this week's mandatory minicamp practices.
