There are a lot of Patriots young star receivers. Here is the breakdown of how they all got here and how they are doing this season.
In the 2019 Draft, N’Keal Harry was drafted with the 32nd pick. He was hurt most of the regular season, but he is back from injury. In his second game against the Cowboys, he caught the only touchdown of the game because he ran a great route. Harry has great potential in New England because he could be the piece that the New England offense has been missing this season. Harry was predicted to win Rookie of the Year before he hurt himself in the preseason.
Jakobi Meyers was an undrafted free agent from North Carolina State. He was an under the radar receiver but is a great fit in New England. Meyers has had 19 receptions for 253 receiving yards. He catches the ball and takes huge hits and shakes them off or he somehow holds onto the ball. The Patriots have done it again since they found a random receiver and made him a great player.
Gunner Olszewski has reminded most people of a young Julian Edelman because of the way he runs and catches the ball. He has not gotten on the field a lot this season, but he has gotten in a good amount on special teams. Olszewski has been a good punt returner which has led to him staying on the team. He has good talent and has the potential to be a starter in a year or two.
These three young star receivers are the future of New England and I cannot wait to see them all play. We could see a lot of the receivers in some pro bowls in the future and maybe the Patriots Hall of Fame. If they all work hard and follow the Patriot way their talent will be maxed out in there career.
