Scouting Report on Alex Watkins

by JC Shurburtt - 07/29/2006
In person, you can tell that his frame will be able to carry additional weight in college. He’s tall, lean and rangy, has long arms and has the build that colleges look for in defensive ends. On film, displays excellent change of direction ability, comes off the ball hard and has good closing speed. Really gets after it when rushing the quarterback. Recovers well. Chases down ball carriers from behind quite often. Will need to develop a variety of ways to avoid blockers at the college level.
