"Sammy, I've got a question: How did you help Seth Ryan out? How did he do out there?" Ryan said. "And if you could really help him, you wouldn't play this game."

Watkins answered simply "How you doing."

Ryan said that Watkins is "one of those guys who don't come around very often." He compared him to Julio Jones and A.J. Green.
