Much has been made of Florida State's Dekoda Watson and his sculpted build. As the official Seminole site boasts on his player profile, Watson measures 48" across his shoulders, but only 26" across his waist.
Watson certainly looks the part of an elite athlete, but has struggled with injury and inconsistency throughout his career. He's also been characterized by some scouts as a linebacker/safety 'tweener.
Watson helped his cause considerably at the Combine by measuring in at 240 pounds, only six pounds lighter than other outside linebacker measured in Indianapolis.
It is natural that players' weights fluctuate a bit in the weeks in between the Combine and Pro Day.
However, the remarkably trim Watson lost 14 pounds, measuring in at 226 pounds at his Pro Day Thursday.
I'm far from a nutrionist or athletic trainer, but losing 14 pounds in roughly three weeks is suspicious. It would seem to be evidence that Watson intentionally gained weight to measure in more impressively at the Combine, before losing the weight to run faster at his Pro Day. For the record, Watson was impressive in drills at the Combine, despite the additional weight, leading all OLBs with a 4.56 second showing in the 40-yard dash.
Thursday, he was timed in the mid 4.4s, a spectacular time for any linebacker.
