Quoting Watkins: “I like to blitz and drop off into coverage. I’m an outside linebacker. I’m versatile so I can do a little of everything.”
“I’m not used to seeing the mountains. The campus and the visit was nice. The players treated me well. Everything was just nice.”
“The think I need to work on is I need to get a little faster. Gain five to ten more pounds. I think if I go there and perform the way I think I can I should have a shot at playing early.”
