Summary

Watkins couldn't stay healthy last year due to chronic foot woes that have kept him off the field since he was in Buffalo. When healthy, he's a versatile threat with excellent technical skills against tight-man coverage. He can win in the red zone--he was the Rams' best red zone receiver in 2017--from the slot, and in the vertical passing game. Watkins built promising rapport with Patrick Mahomes last summer. If he can stay healthy, he should be the Chiefs' leading wide receiver in 2019. (May 22)
