N’Keal Harry was the latest Caribbean national to be drafted by an NFL team on Thursday when he was selected by Super Bowl champions, the New England Patriots during the 2019 draft held in Nashville, Tennessee.

Harry, a 6-foot-2, 228-pound receiver attended Arizona State, is from St. Vincent. He spent three years at Arizona State before declaring for the draft. During his time at ASU, the 21-year-old receiver played 37 games and scored 22 touchdowns while posting 213 receptions for 2,889 receiving yards.

The receptions and yards are third best in school history.

Harry was actually born in Toronto, Canada, before moving to St. Vincent and the Grenadines as a baby.

His grandmother eventually took him to Phoenix, Arizona where he tried several sports including soccer, football, and basketball, among others.

She eventually allowed him to play American football and he starred at Chandler High School after transferring from Marcos de Niza High School in Tempe.

In his junior season, Harry caught 13 touchdown passes on 30 catches for 657 yards.

  • Steelers RB James Conner ruled out of Cardinals clash Steelers RB James Conner ruled out of Cardinals clash

    Pittsburgh Steelers running back James Conner will miss Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals due to a shoulder injury.

    Conner announced his absence after he was limited in practice for the second consecutive day on Thursday.

    The 2018 NFL Pro Bowler has missed two straight games following a shoulder injury sustained against the Cleveland Browns on November 14.

    Conner, who has missed five of the past six games hampered by injuries, told reporters: "I don't want to look too far ahead.

    "It's still going to take some time. We'll see. Hopefully I can get out there as soon as possible, but this week, no."

    "Just don't want to take none of the game reps away from some guys that are going to be active," Conner added. "Nice to get out there and just run around."

    The Steelers are 7-5 for the season and second in the AFC North – in contention for the final wildcard spot amid a two-game winning streak.

    "Honestly, taking it day-by-day," Conner said. "So whatever that may be, I'm not going to count it out until I'm done for sure."

  • Beckham casts doubt over Browns future Beckham casts doubt over Browns future

    Odell Beckham Jr. cast doubt over his future with the Cleveland Browns, saying he was unsure what was ahead.

    Beckham has struggled to live up to expectations after being traded to the Browns from the New York Giants in March.

    The 27-year-old has just two receiving touchdowns this NFL season – his career-low is three during an injury-affected 2017 campaign – and the Browns are 5-7, two games outside a wildcard berth.

    And Beckham was noncommittal when asked about his future with the Browns on Thursday.

    "What's the future hold? I don't know that, I don't know the answers for that," he told a news conference.

    "Right now, I'm just taking it a day at a time, trying to finish the season healthy, trying to win these last four games and see what happens."

    Beckham, a first-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, spent five seasons with the Giants and was named to three Pro Bowls.

    The wide receiver said his future was not something he was focused on right now.

    "I feel like I've been here before asking questions about the next team while I'm on a team already and it's just something I tune out right now," Beckham said.

    "Catch me in the offseason and we'll see what happens. I don't know God's plans, I just follow his lead."

    The Browns face the struggling Cincinnati Bengals (1-11) on Sunday.
