Tom Brady has a new toy. A really shiny one.
The Patriots quarterback turns 42 in 2019 and if he has his way, he has four years left. So Bill Belichick clearly saw the value in diving right into a deep wide receiver class in the 2019 NFL Draft for a dynamic weapon to work with Brady on the back nine - especially now that he no longer has Rob Gronkowski.
Not only did Belichick go out and get Brady a weapon, he wasted no time with his deep draft arsenal and selected Arizona State WR N'Keal Harry with the 32nd overall pick. And Brady chimed in about it on Twitter on Friday morning, welcoming Harry to the team presumably after waking up to the good news.
Glad to have you N’Keal. Big things ahead, excited to work with you. https://t.co/5npgwhRDS5

Regardless of where Harry's NFL career goes, Brady has to be excited about the pick. Harry projects as a dynamic outside receiver for the Patriots, someone whom Brady could trust to come down with the football in one-on-one matchups and make plays after the catch. Belichick must love his size, strength, toughness, and versatility.
The biggest question with Harry, as it is with every new receiver on the Patriots, is whether he can build a rapport with Brady and do it quickly. You'd have to think No. 12 is willing to put the work in with a first-round talent being added to his arsenal.
