Player Outlook

The Packers had such a strong evaluation on Watson that they traded multiple picks to secure him near the top of Day 2 in the 2022 NFL Draft. It's easy to see why: Watson chews up ground with his ridiculously long stride length and blazing straight-line speed. He also played in an offense in college that used him on jet sweeps and in pre-snap motion -- very similar to the offense the Packers run under Matt LaFleur. Most believe Watson could carve out a similar role to Marquez Valdes-Scantling as a rookie, but that's doing a disservice to Watson as a prospect. His Fantasy ceiling, even as early as 2022, is considerably higher. Expect him to get picked before the end of Round 10 in seasonal leagues and the end of Round 1 in rookie-only drafts.

Player News
  • The Packers selected Watson in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 34th overall. Watson (6-foot-4, 208 pounds) is a tall receiver out of North Dakota State with compelling long speed (4.36-second 40), a combination of traits very similar to free-agent departure and former starting Green Bay wideout Marquez Valdes-Scantling. He doesn't project to do much as an underneath or even intermediate target in the NFL, but Watson eventually should develop into a more complete version of what MVS was for the Packers. Watson is a good bet to emerge as Green Bay's main boundary receiver and deep threat, even as a rookie.
