I've read a lot threads and comments from many here about Watkins and debated with a few more about us potentially drafting him at #5 if Clowney (who I believe 90% of this forum agree is the best player in the draft) isn't there.
I'm not going to get into whether or not we should draft him. I think I've covered this 100 times over via comments. Some agree and some don't and I respect both views. But what inspired me to write this is I keep hearing about how some are worried because he caught a ton of screen passes this season. Well he did - but, as this awesome article points out, that hardly means he's incapable of running other routes and being successful. More importantly, it tells us that although he was running a ton of screens, his YAC was insane and more than Evans, Lee & Benjamin.

Now this article doesn't offer any answers mind you, just provides metrics for the 4 WR's previously mentioned and makes you worry a little less about those screens based on those metrics.
I personally think he's going to be the next big WR in the NFL and would be happy if we drafted him but only if Clowney & Mathews are gone.
Talk amongst yourselves.
