What the scouts are saying:

"A legitimate No. 1-caliber receiver who stepped onto the field as a true freshman and made an immediate, game-changing impact. Has rare speed, soft hands and the big-play ability to challenge NFL defensive backs as a rookie." (Nolan Nawrocki, NFL.com)

" Active blocker and gets the job done in this area. Versatile experience lining up wide, in the slot and in the backfield - also as an impact return man. Productive career, school-record for career receiving." (Dane Brugler, CBSSports.com)

"Watkins is the best offensive weapon in the 2014 NFL Draft. He also is the best receiver prospect to enter the NFL since A.J. Green and Julio Jones in the 2011 draft class. Watkins is extremely fast and is an explosive play-maker who can score on any touch from any place on the field." (WalterFootball.com)

"Watkins is a legit prospect with size, speed and big-play ability. He grades out as a true talent who can produce within the route tree while forcing opposing defenses to account for his skill set after the catch." (Matt Bowen, BleacherReport.com)
