    At the rate he is progressing I'm in full agreement with you. No way he should have lasted to day 2.

    I wonder if Watkins will be on the special teams unit used to block kicks? He would be front and center if I were coach.

    Anyone know why he lasted that long?

    The way he leaps, it's funny he didn't go to the NBA...:eek: I'm willing to bet, and I'm serious, that he could jump higher then Superman!

    Me too. I'm more of the Kendall Watkins body type. Only a lot shorter and fatter. (How's that for a little Cowboy's trivia?) :D My vertical is only 4 less than Patrick's, though. I have more like a 3 inch vertical.

    That's somehitng I thought about when we drafted him Ty...

    6'5", athletic... 43" vertical and he catches the ball well... he would be almost impossible to stop with a nice high throw...

    The easy answer, even though it sounds "stupid" is that Watkins body-type is so off the bell curve when it comes to the position that it literally scared the hell out of pro-personal.

    For years business automation buyers were well aware of the phrase, "No one ever got fired for buying IBM"...

    Well it's the same here. It's easier to "sell" a 6' tall 200lb FS to the rest in your organization that it would be to "sell" someone shaped as differently as Pat Watkins.

    So most personel departments--- fearing the fallout from drafting an athletic oddball like Pat Watkins-- just avoided the problem by not drafting him.

    But I can tell you right now there are other teams out there seeing what this kid is doing in training camp and kicking themselves for not dropping a 4th or a 3rd or even a 2nd on the guy.

    This kid has the chance to be a difference maker for any defense-- you just watch. ;)
