Bio: Junior college transfer who totaled 49/678/9 as a senior after numbers of 52/1,042/6 in '04 when he was named an All-Conference performer.
Pos: Explosive, game-breaking receiver coming off a disappointing senior campaign. Quickly releases off the line of scrimmage, displays sharpness running routes and comes back to the ball out of breaks. Effectively makes the reception away from his frame then quickly transitions after the catch. Has the speed to consistently beat defenders deep. Runs well laterally, making the reception in stride.
Neg: Not effective as a downfield blocker. Loses focus, takes his eyes off the ball and occasionally drops the easy reception.
Analysis: Productive his only two seasons on a big college level, Watkins has big-play ability and the potential to develop into a No. 2 receiver in the NFL.
