Agreed. Watson was one of my pet cats but I am amazed at how quickly and how high he is rising. The guy has barely 2 years of football experience, at any level. One year at JC and another year with FSU.
He is extremely athletic and has the frame to get much bigger. He can run and play in space. He is light on his feet probably due to his basketball background. Has boxing experience too so has naturally heavy hands.
He is the dreaded P word - potential, because he is so raw. He is smart, coachable and has a great work ethic but he lacks football instincts because the game is so new to him and he's a Brit. Should be more likely to succeed in a zone blocking scheme.
