Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Quez Watkins.
Drafted in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, wideout Quez Watkins was almost an afterthought to most Philadelphia Eagles fans as the offseason rolled on. Considered a one-trick pony by some, Watkins can evolve into a potential deep threat, but he’s more than that.
Early on in the 2020 season, Watkins didn’t do much to change anyone’s minds, but as the season went on the former Southern Miss receiver started to show flashes of what the Eagles front office liked about him.
Heading into 2021, Quez Watkins was hardly brought up in media circles. Expectations of the six-foot, 193-pound weapon weren’t very high heading into training camp, yet here we are adding to the media blitz of the second-year receiver.
Constant reports coming out of camp state that Watkins looks like the best weapon in the Eagle’s passing game. The 23-year-old has seemingly come into his own early on in this year. He’s shown his ability as a deep threat. He’s shown that he can beat cornerbacks routinely. He’s also shown that he’s developed as a route runner.
If Watkins can continue to develop his skill set he can be a true star in the Eagle’s offense.
