Combine hype hero Christian Watson lands in Green Bay with the opportunity to become Aaron Rodgers' new bae. The athleticism is a known commodity for Watson as he is sporting a 98th percentile speed score and 95th percentile burst score. Marrying Watson's immediate YAC ability with Rodgers will be a nice pairing. Watson has finished 12th, seventh, and 17th in the last three seasons in YAC per reception (among FCS and FBS wide receivers, minimum 50 targets per PFF).

The worst-case scenario with Christian Watson is that he becomes Marques Valdez-Scantling in the Green Bay Packers offense. The elite athleticism and big-play ability present a sky-high ceiling as Aaron Rodgers' future WR1, but a lack of refinement and focus drops reveal a somewhat scary floor.

MVS' 73-target rookie season in 2018 is the most a first-year WR has ever earned from Rodgers, which further bolsters the case for a Valdes-Scantling floor for Watson. Davante Adams led that team with 169 targets.

Either way, he's worth a middle-to-backend Round 1 pick in rookie drafts. The opportunity he could see from Day 1 amid a lackluster receiving corps of Sammy Watkins, Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb and Amari Rodgers is salivating.

7/27: Still not healthy while other WRs around him shine. A fast-faller --Training Camp is crucial for a "raw" player like Watson to build the rapport


6/8 Update: Reportedly struggling with drops. Something to surely monitor w/ a notoriously unforgiving QB in Rodgers


5/2: Could he be Rodgers' new No.1?! Well-worth the stab at finding out

34th overall pick, 6'4", 210lb, 10 1/8" hands, 4.36 forty, 38.5" vertical, 11'4" broad, NDSU, 23yr. Possible 2nd round nfl draft pick - @DBro_ffb
