So here's what I don't get when I read articles and listen to talent evaluators talk about Watson.
1. He's undersized. He's listed at 6'2 209lbs and Mitch Trubisky the top rated QB out of NC is 6'3 209lbs. What am I missing here?
2. He's not accurate enough. In each season his completion percentage was 67%. In his only year starting Trubisky had a 68% completion percentage. Deshone Kizer from Notre Dame completed 63% in 2015 and a 58.7% in 2016 and yet him and Trubisky are lauded as "very accurate passers." Watson meanwhile needs to "work on his accuracy." I'm so confused.
Personally I'm sold on him based on the things he has that you can't teach. Phenomenal leadership, clutch perfomer and winner, and his overall drive to want to be the best.
With all this said, I can't wait to see him at the combine if he participates and at his pro day. Can't wait to hear from everyone!
