Analysis:  A great combination of size and speed Sammy Watkins will be one of the top recruits in the 2011 class.  He is a great route runner and gets in and out of his breaks as good as anyone.  With the ball in his hands his size allows him to break many tackles.  Displays great acceleration allowing him to blow by defenders.  Has a great set of hands catching everything that comes his way.  Defensively he is great in coverage and is good at anticipating routes however his open field ability is too good to waste on defense at the next level.
