    7. Pat Watkins, Florida State (6-4¾, 211, 4.48)
    Watkins had a complete workout at the Combine. He ran his 40s in 4.42 and 4.50, had a 41-inch vertical jump, 11-foot-1 long jump, and had 14 lifts. At the Florida State Pro Day on March 16, he had a 4.08 short shuttle and a 6.83 three-cone drill. Watkins played safety in high school and also returned six kickoffs for touchdowns in his senior year. Played as a true freshman in 2002. Played, but didn't start in 2003. Ended up starting 25 games over his final two seasons. Had 11 interceptions in three years. A player that has good athletic ability and range for his height, however, he wasn't as consistent in 2005 as he was in '04. Has good quickness to make plays and good coverage skills. The only negative is Smith's very small lower body (legs). It's hard for quarterbacks to throw the ball over a guy like this who is almost 6-foot-5 with 34-inch arms. He will be a good special teams player.
