TE Ben Watson - New Orleans Saints
|6-3, 253||Born: 12-18-1980||College: Georgia||Drafted: Round 1, pick 32|
Quick fantasy outlook: Ben Watson signed a three-year deal with the Saints in March and gives them a solid back-up receiving tight end. Watson, the former first rounder drafted by New England in 2004, has had several productive seasons for the Patriots and Browns and has 321 career receptions for 3,776 yards and 28 TDs. Watson has always had great physical skills running a 4.44 forty-yard dash at the combine and putting up 32 reps of 225 pounds, but he also scored an amazing 48 on the wonderlic test, which was the highest score among NFL players at the time. His durability is a concern now, as he has had several concussions among his many injuries. His signing by the Saints gives him an opportunity to play in another high powered offense, perhaps to finish off his career.
