FOXBORO -- With the final pick in the first round of the NFL draft, the Patriots selected Arizona State wide receiver N'Keal Harry.

The 21-year-old was with his family in Arizona at the time and the moment was captured on video and posted to social media.

"It was so surreal, especially for me, waiting that long and getting to the end of the first round," he said afterwards on a conference call. "I was honestly starting to think maybe I had to start getting ready for Day 2. So, when I got that call, I tried not to be emotional, but I couldn’t really hold it back at that point. I just felt so blessed, I was so thankful for the Patriots organization. I was just thanking God and I’m just ready to get to work."

Here's the moment Harry got the call.
