He did his share of laying out Cowboys under George Allen. Anyone Watkins also described as an "elite ST" with such good hands that he could be a WR in the Red Zone. He's the last centerfield FS available so thank goodness we traded up to get him. This guy's our future starter FS after he learns how to play FS in the NFL. I wanted this guy in 3rd round; can't believe we got him in the 5th.
That was actually the SE Region scout but the summary is dead on.
