I think some of you are really underestimating Watkins...

I realize that Watkins has a lot of potential, but I'm watching some of his film and he's getting some huge cushions, not having to fight through close coverage, he hasn't faced much press at all (and struggled a little when he faced some in the Virginia game), and a huge amount of his receptions came off screens. I'm not saying I like the guy, but in the NFL you are going to be facing guys on par athletically that will press you with no fear. I'm just not sure if Watkins has the ability to be consistently beat those guys off the press and beat the new breed of long corners on the jump ball. I still view him as a first round pick, but if I am drafting a WR in the first round, I would want a guy with size who has shown he can make a play for my quarterback on a broken play jump ball, and be a beast in the red zone
