WHILE not a world-changing pick, Jaylen Watkins should be at least good enough to push the veterans at both CB and FS.
This pick is at least a sane investment in the developmental aspect of the Secondary as a whole. Whether this guy pans out as a HOF player, or he doesn’t make it past first cuts, his presence alone means others have to step it up in camp this year. So from that standpoint alone it’s good pick.
From what I’ve read about this guy, so far he doesn’t sound all that impressive as a player. He’ll tackle, but he’s fragile. He can run, but he has poor ball-skills. He can cover, but he’s grabby. It’s a mixed bag.
In all truth he sounds like a default Special Teamer. But that’s at least something.
Very interested in what we do with both of those 5th rounders.
