Draft Rewind 2004 - Benjamin Watson - Cleveland Browns

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about BENJAMIN WATSON: Georgia, 6034 255 4.51. Transfer from Duke. Two year starter. Was slowed some by injuries as a senior. An impressive specimen with a muscular physique and good overall strength. Excellent athlete. Promising but not a consistent blocker. Smooth firing out on linebackers. Able to adjust to a defender’s move in space. Can turn his hips to seal the edge. Light on his feet. Needs to do a better job of sustaining blocks. Not nasty away from the play. A little late off the ball at times. Has a tendency to lean into blocks and not move his feet quickly. Natural receiver. Fluid in his release to escape the jam. Skilled route runner with quickness in and out of cuts and the speed to get deep. Reads coverages well — able to find opening in a zone. Has solid hands and very good body control — adjusts to bad balls easily. Tough in a crowd. Can be dynamic after the catch. Intelligent. Had strong Senior Bowl and combine performances. Hasn’t put it all together yet but he has the tools to be a first rate pro. (Watson was orginally drafted by New England.)
