Well I have Gates as my #1 TE and Watson as my #2, I'm hoping that Watson does well enough early so I can trade him for a upgrade at wr or rb.

He has good speed, no I don't think 8-10 TD's is completely crazy as he might break a long one every now and then. I think he'll have somewhere around 700 yds and 7 TD's when all is said and done. I'll take that all day every day from a tight end in the 10th round.


Yeah, people keep saying that "the Pats spread the ball around so much". Maybe so, but if Watson is going to act as No. 1 option on the Patriots, that's still good for 70-80 catches, 700-800 yards and 6 or 7TDs. I'll take that any day for a double digit round pick.


Check current drafts, Watson has skyrocketed up into the middle rounds. I see him going ahead of Chris Cooley in some instances (a guy who has already reached the 700/7 range).


I still see Watson going in the 11th at Antsports and in the 13th at FFcalculator. Assuming Branch leaves, that means the Pats will have lost their top 2 pass catchers this year. Sure they "spread it around" but you still need the talent to get open. Who is going to step up to replace the void of 140 catches that Givens and Branch had last year. Other than Troy Brown, who is 35, Watson has by far the best combonation of talent/experience rapport with Brady. I don't think the Pats will often be running 2 TEs into their pass plays so I don't think Graham or any other TE is much of a factor against Watson. Who else is there? Caldwell? brand new Jackson? too green Kevin Faulk will get his share but no more than usual. They may have 3 guys this year who catch 30 balls but I think Watson will be leaned on to carry a very mediocre (if that) group of receiver. If though they spread it around, he'll catch the most balls and while that doesn't amount to very good WR #s, they will be excellent TE #s.

I can't remember where I heard it, but I heard rumours of NE
flirting with the idea of occasionally lining him up at WR.
