With speculation that Deion Branch is leaving, many people think Watson will be a big beneficiary. Would you place him ahead of guys like Heath Miller for this year, in the case that Branch leaves?

No but I think they are about even so instead the idea is to wait and grab Watson late.
The facts have no meaning.

Branch or no Branch, Watson is still somewhere in 10-15 TE rankings.

With Branch leaving the team I'd say he could go from being the 15th to the 12th TE or something like that, but not enough to surge his stock that much. Brady is just a master of spreading the ball around.

I'd put him ahead of Miller. He's been making chemistry with Brady and should be a huge option in the red zone.

Plus the guy is fast. He can get open down the seam. He averaged 15 yds per rec. He has huge upside. I've been passing on the top TE's and taking him in the later rounds, although today I waited too long and someone else took him. :-t

Brady spreads the ball around so much its hard to rate any Pats receiver very high. Miller will get EZ looks with the Bus gone and Staley not proving anything.

Ooh, I'm loving it. Who said drafting early didn't pay off sometimes?

After tonight alone I might have to take back what I said earlier... He very well could end up being a very solid TE this year... Where you draft him is up to you.
