CTAs

1.09 – Christian Watson (WR – GB)
Senior Bowl standout and combine phenom Christian Watson is officially a cheesehead filling a glaring need for Packer nation at receiver. Watson’s small school and non-early declare status is problematic, but the talent and opportunity are there for him to explode. Watson is competing with Allen Lazard, the Lizard King, Randall Cobb, fourth-round pick Romeo Doubs, and a laundry list of depth chart filler for targets. He’s a moonshot home run swing worth taking in the mid to late first round of drafts tied to a future Hall of Fame quarterback in Aaron Rodgers.

2.09 – Jalen Tolbert (WR – DAL)
Jalen Tolbert dominated small-school competition earning his third-round draft status on the way to big D. Tolbert should be a starter in three-wide sets from Day 1, with stalwart Noah Brown and James Washington as his main competition. Michael Gallup isn’t a sure thing to be ready by Week 1 of this season, so the Cowboys could open the season with Tolbert competing with Dalton Schultz for looks behind CeeDee Lamb. The target totem pole is congested, but landing on a top ten scoring offense with a possible runway to earn early-season volume is a positive.

3.09 – Tyquan Thornton (WR – NE)
Say hello to the fastest man on Earth. Well at least by the NFL Combine standards for a short period of time. Baylor’s Tyquan Thorton broke John Ross‘ 4.22 record with an unofficial 4.21 40-yard dash – the fastest mark ever recorded. Although, he did not hold the record for long as his official time came in just short of the record at 4.28 seconds. The Baylor wideout was barely on my radar for fantasy football purposes before the NFL Combine, which was clearly an oversight on my part. His speed alone got him Round-2 draft capital. Thornton’s speed translated well into on-field production as he graded out as a top-10 wideout in PFF receiving grade from the intermediate level of the field (10-19 yards) last season.
