3. Christian Watson
North Dakota State’s Christian Watson projects as a starting-caliber outside wide receiver and could be a great fit in Baltimore’s offensive scheme.
Watson’s explosive speed and athleticism serve as the building blocks of his future success and he could particularly excel in man coverage on deeper routes.
In his senior year, Watson recorded 43 catches for 801 yards and seven touchdowns, averaging 18.6 yards per catch. He won’t blow people away with his contested catch ability, but he has shown flashes of his potential to make big plays — all in all, not a bad rookie replacement for Marquise Brown.
Watson is believed to be one of the highly ranked wide receiver prospects left in his class and will attract attention from all receiver-needy teams, including the Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs.
Hopefully, Baltimore can beat them to the punch and nab its young wideout of the future.
