is the #2 Explosive Player in College football.

Oregon's versatile DeAnthony Thomas was regarded as the top playmaker on the list.

Assuming he's fully healthy and fully focused off the field, Watkins should return to his 2011 form. As a true freshman, he posted one of the best first seasons in NCAA history by catching 82 passes for 1,219 yards and 12 touchdowns while rushing for 231 yards on 32 attempts and scoring on one of his 32 kickoff returns. His numbers regressed last year due to nagging injuries and a lack of focus off the field.
