In a recent interview with Andrea Adelson of ESPN, Sammy Watkins talks about his change of position to the boundry WR.

It was Nuk Hopkins' past WR position and a spot where he excelled.

"With this position you have to be prepared every play," Watkins said. "At my other position, you could take a play off because you know the ball's not coming to you. This position, the ball could come to you at any time. You have to be prepared and ready to make a play every time you go out there on the field. You can’t be relaxed at that position because you have to block and be physical. So it’s going to challenge me to be a great player overall instead of just going out there and making big plays, to make those hard catches with people on you and while people are hitting you. It’s a great opportunity."
