UDFA. Brother of Browns TE Ben Watson. Signed by Patriots as UDFA but released in August and signed by the Cowboys, but also released. Is a pretty solid all-around tight end who can catch and block.
All-Star Games: Medal of Honor Bowl and NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.
Positives: Adequate hand size. Above-average speed. Hard to bring down, and keeps his feet even with a big hit. Pretty good concentration in contested passes. Good effort as a run blocker and stands his ground well with good leverage. Above-average upper-body strength and ability to change directions.
Negatives: Short for a tight end or H-back and is built more like a big wide receiver. Inconsistent hands and tends to body catch and have some trouble extending low. Despite his effort as a run blocker, he seems to lack strength and size to be effective. Can be easily unbalanced running routes. Suspect ball security.
Projection: Could put up TE3 numbers if he gets the chance, with a TE2 ceiling. Probably no need to draft, though, especially now that he’s a free agent, but keep an eye on him.
