Is Sammy Watkins the Jevon Kearse of wide receivers?
We’ll soon find out.
Sammy Watkins is far and away the best wide receiver in the 2014 draft and he has a pretty good explanation why. Watkins said he has “some freakish talents and ability to make plays” during an interview with 95.7 The Game on Tuesday and then he explained why he’ll avoid some of the pitfalls young wide receivers experience.
“I’m able to transition myself and work through tough conditions,” Watkins said, via Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com. “I understand football and the preparation, so for me, it’s getting in with the team I’m with and learn that playbook. That’s all I need to do is really learn that playbook, and after that, just adjusting to the speed of the game and how cornerbacks play in the NFL. That would be the next step. I think after the first few games I’ll be definitely fine.”
