It looks as though the Dallas Cowboys could be considering signing former New England Patriots 1st round pick N'Keal Harry, who they brought in for a workout earlier this month. 

According to David Howman of Blogging The Boys, Harry could be useful to quarterback Dak Prescott as his 4th receiver given the fact that he possesses the talent that had pundits comparing him to Dez Bryant. 

“Harry was a stud in college, though, which is why he went in the first round,” writes Howman. “He was a contested catch king with shades of Dez Bryant to his game. He’s also been one of the best run-blocking receivers in the NFL over his brief career thus far, a role that just so happens to have been vacated in Dallas by Noah Brown. Harry comes cheap right now, but he has talent waiting to be tapped. At the worst, he’s just a camp body; but Harry could turn into a valuable move piece as the fourth receiver in Dallas if he can build a rapport with Dak Prescott.”

Harry, who earned First Team All-Pac 12 receiver status during his collegiate days, would spend the first three years of his NFL career with the Patriots before being traded to the Chicago Bears for seventh-round draft pick. 

His numbers in New England weren't anything eye-popping, as he racked up just 57 catches for 598 yards and four touchdowns. Despite playing 40% of the snaps with Chicago, he would also just haul in seven passes for 116 yards and one touchdown in seven games.
