Even in the limited sample of his injury-shortened rookie season, it was clear that Patriots 2019 first-round pick had some work to do in terms of his speed and quickness in his route running.
In the midst of his first NFL offseason, Harry is indeed working on his fluidity and the speed with which he’s able to play the game.
According to a report from The Athletic (subscription), Harry is working with trainer Justin Allen, the younger brother of former Patriots tight end Dwayne Allen, at All-En Sports Performance in Houston. Much of the work is focused on speed.
Though the 6-4, 225-pound target has clear ability to win contested catches in the NFL, his job would obviously be easier and his contributions more consistent if he can create more separation from opposing defensive backs.
He’s putting in the work to do so, and at least according to his trainer much progress is already being made.
“He’s a fast learner,” Allen told The Athletic. “You can see the corrections happening within his workouts. It takes repetition. The more we repped, the better he got. He is definitely learning fast.”
