The Buffalo Bills will host former Arizona State wide receiver, N’Keal Harry, for a pre-draft visit according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Harry dominated in the PAC-12 against their lackluster defenses. In three years as a starter, Harry totaled 213 catches for 2,889 yards and 23 touchdowns. Harry is a big and physical receiver with sticks of glue for hands.

In the fall and winter, Harry was considered one of the top two or three receiver prospects. As we inch closer to the draft, guys like Hakeem Butler from Iowa State have put pressure on players like Harry and D.K. Metcalf as the top prospect. I wouldn't consider the emergence of others as a fall for Harry as he is still a valuable prospect, but much of the knock on Harry is due to his lack of separation and lax route running at times.

At ninth overall, Harry would be a huge reach, but the Bills could try and wait until the 40th overall pick and test their luck that Harry would fall. Harry is going to be a target for teams towards the end of the first round and early second round. If the Bills are serious about Harry as a prospect, they'd likely have to trade up from 40th or move down into the back half of the first round from ninth.

The Bills have been busy trying to get Josh Allen as many weapons as possible. Signing Cole Beasley and John Brown are a good starting point but the Bills still lack a top-flight outside receiver and a red-zone threat—Harry would bring both of those qualities to the table for the Bills.
