Buccaneers' Justin Watson: Standing out in rookie minicamp
Watson, a fifth-round pick out of Penn, has stood out on multiple plays thus far in rookie minicamp practices, Carmen Vitali of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
Watson has reportedly run crisp routes and flashed the sure hands that translated to 286 receptions for 3,777 yards and 33 touchdowns over four college seasons. The rookie has been hauling in almost every ball thrown his way during both positional and team drills, and displayed the strength his stout 6-foot-3, 215-pound frame affords him by utilizing his hands Saturday to fend off second-round pick Carlton Davis and log one of his many receptions, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. Watson faces a steep climb up the receiver depth chart if he does secure a roster spot, but he should have plenty of opportunity to prove his mettle over minicamps, training camp and preseason games.
