Deep Dive: Christian Watson

The Packers drafted wide receiver Christian Watson in the second round, trading two late second round picks for the speedy wideout. Watson has elite physical tools. He ran a 4.36 forty. He is 6’4” and weighs 207 lbs. To put that in perspective, Watson has the size of Randy Moss. Moss ran a hand held stopwatch 40 time of 4.25, but being hand held it could have been as slow as 4.35. DeSean Jackson ran a 4.35 forty and made a living on deep balls and stretching defenses in the NFL. But Jackson was only 5’10 and 175 lbs.
