Miami Dolphins would benefit from drafting Christian Watson
No player helped their stock more at the Reese’s Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama than Christian Watson. The North Dakota State wide receiver was all the rave during the week and it’s easy to see why.
Watson was dominating corners with his speed and his 6-foot-4 frame. While Watson averaged over 17 yards per reception in his career, proving he’s a speedster, he was also a much more physical wideout than his frame leads people to believe.
Similar to Walker, Watson is one of those players who I’m labeling as one of my “guys” and a mock draft staple. He may not have played the same caliber of completion as some of the wideouts going ahead of him, but plugging Watson in the role that was meant for Will Fuller could give Miami another dynamic playmaker.
Watson would allow the team to continue to use Waddle in the slot while not losing any speed on the outside. Miami will likely need to bolster the wideout room with depth due to inconsistency behind Waddle in 2021.
Watson’s stock might be rising to a point that Miami might not be able to take him in the third round, but if they have the chance they should not hesitate.
