    Saw Menelik Watson declared. Played RT at Florida St - big time athlete project.


    I've seen him listed at everything between 6'5" to 6'8". He's around 320 - 330 lbs. Great size and apparently super athletic. I've read he may run as well as high 4.7s to low 4.8s. He's 25, which explains why he declared despite little experience. He stood out in games, but I didn't realize he was an older player.

    He's only played football for about two seasons. He's from England. Was a basketball player at Marist (not a good one). Was going to try heavyweight boxing after basketball, but kind of fell into football. There was an SI article about him last year.

    He's #71 at RT. At this YouTuber's channel, you can see every FSU game edited to 15 minutes or so. All the in-between fluff has been cut out.

    Definitely looks inexperienced. Coaches seem to be giving him some help on a lot of plays. If he gets a hold of you you're done, but it looks like he doesn't yet have a feel for pass blocking. Good quick feet. Really can run. Gets rag-dolled a bit right now.
