    BIO: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after posting 49/10.5/8. Totaled a career-best 93 tackles as a junior.

    Highlight Reel

    Grading System

    BIO: Full-time starter the past two seasons. Junior totals were 45/564/2 after 27/367/4 the prior year.

Blocks with excellent pad level, jolting defenders at the point of attack.

    NEGATIVES: Does not always win out in battles. Marginally strong and cannot finish blocks.

    ANALYSIS: Possessing a solid combination of intelligence, athleticism and intensity, Fasano offers starting potential at the next level as a move tight end. Could be an effective blocker in time as he physically matures.

Posted career-best receiving numbers that season with 48/519/5.

    POSITIVES: Elusive ball carrier whose primary duties lay as a return specialist. Solid pass catcher who extends and looks the ball into his hands. Quick-footed, makes defenders miss and follows blocks anywhere on the field handling the ball. Always works to pick up as much yardage as possible.

    Ht., Wt.: 6-4.5, 222
    40 Time: 4.47

    Highlight Reel

    Grading System

    BIO: Two-year starter with numbers of 77/3/5 as a senior after 56/4/10 the prior year.

    POSITIVES: Nice-sized athlete coming off a disappointing senior campaign. Explodes up the field defending running plays or screens and goes for the knockout blow.

Outstanding special-teamer effective on coverage units.

    NEGATIVES: Struggles with his back to the ball, slow locating the pass and very indecisive.

    ANALYSIS: An athletic safety with the skills and range to play centerfield, Watkins graded out as a top-45 pick until last year. Has a bit of risk to his game yet offers starting potential for a team patient with him.

    If we had traded down, the Pats would have grabbed him, no question.

    He was born on 8/1/83, so he'll turn 23 just before the start of the season.

    He's nine days older than me - cool.

    Anyway - I like the pick. Of the 3 LBers (Wimbley was already chosen, so I guess 2), I wanted him the most, so yay.

    That being said - it hurts watching Winston Justice free fall, because I would have taken him.

    Yeah i'm also a lil puzzled at the picking of a TE, we have a beast of a pass catcher, and a young version of dan campbell so please explain why we went with a position we were for sure for sure set at as opposed to say maybe safety or NT?

    Gee,

    I was really hapy with the Fasano pick ( told my 2 brothers I was watching the draft with to get ready for Fasano or J Scott here...) and our 1st rounder was a great combo of BPA and Need. As far as Hatcher goes...

    1. I am sure we had him targeted b4 the draft
    2. We didn't want to use a high third on him, but we didn't want to watch him get snagged by NO, NE, or Hou in the early 4th
    3. We traded back as far as we could, gathered up some extra picks, and got a guy that we must see as a diamond in the rough

    Good Job:)

    As for OL, maybe the truth is that BP didn't see any of the 2nd/3rd rounders as guys who were any more ready to play than the guys we already have. I am glad to see that we didn't just recycle our depth when we didn't see anyone who was head and shoulders better than what we already have.

    last but not least... Get ready for a barrage of ST/KR/PR guys in 5 & 6 LOL
