    Watkins isn't even the fastest in his family.

    If they don't draft Watkins then I take Matthews AND I do not pick any other wr in the draft because we have cornered the market on guys who can't play, aren't players, or like like Tarzan and play like Jane.

    Watkins isn't my choice for the Rams first pick but to deny his talent is silly. Did you ever see him catch a screen pass and take off like he was shot from a cannon? His ability to accelerate quickly is rare. Julio can't match that. I rate Watkins above Jones too. Heck, when White is healthy Jones isn't even the best receiver on his team.

    LOL Both of his run times were stopped by the Steeler dude who admitted he screwed up. No one runs a faster time the second time around.

    And if you WATCHED the combine then you saw all the NFL players tweeting that Watkins would break the combine record right?

    Maybe you changed the channel.

    Whoa! So you are saying in this deep WR draft that there is no other worthy of playing in the NFL? And the Rams have no NFL worthy WRs? Medication is in order.

    RFIP,

    Actually, some players have run faster times on their second attempt.
    Also, there have been plenty of players NFL players, media, and fans expected to run great times that didn't.
    It happens almost every year, if not every year.

    You're only as fast as you are perceived to be by the people who perceive you to be really fast, I thought this was a well established rule?

    Really smacks of sour grapes there RFIP.

    I'm OK with not picking any WR in this draft too but not ,of course, for the reasons you gave.

    I have no problem with drafting Watkins though. Dude's awesome.

    I'll give him this, Clowney's ability to run in a straight line is very impressive.

    If Jones & Watkins were both in this Draft we would not be talking about Watkins.....Jones all day, every day, every hour and every minute....not even close to Jones IMO. Even I would be pulling for a WR with the #2 and Jones would be my choice.

    I feel like you're discounting his tennis ball snatching skills with this statement.

    Not at all what I'm saying.

    What I AM saying is the Rams are at a point where they can no longer wait years for a wr to FINALLY develope and Watkins IMO is the ONLY plug and play wr in this draft.
