N'Keal Harry had some brief phone trouble during Patriots draft call


Imagine you're an NFL Draft prospect who's still on the board entering the final pick of the first round.

Now imagine you get a phone call from the New England Patriots ... and your connection gets dropped.

Apparently that almost happened to wide receiver N'Keal Harry, whom the Patriots took at No. 32 overall. NFL Films teased their "Hey Rookie" draft day show Tuesday by tweeting behind-the-scenes footage of D.K. Metcalf, Devin White, Trace McSorley and Harry receiving calls from their new clubs.

That's Harry in the black shirt (about 12 seconds into the video) saying, "It's kind of breaking up a bit ... Hello?"

We're guessing the call didn't drop, because the Patriots made the Arizona State product their first wide receiver taken in the first round since Terry Glenn in 1996.

You can check out Harry's emotional reaction here, and we'd imagine ESPN2 will have more quality footage in "Hey Rookie," which airs Tuesday night at 8:30 p.m. ET.
