Height: 6-2   Weight: 245   Age: 30

Born: 3/3/1988 Aiken , SC

College: Florida State

Experience: 9th season

High School: South Aiken HS [Aiken, SC]









Draft 2010

Pick No.217

Selected By: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Round: 7

Pick (Overall): 10 (217)

Pick Analysis: Watson was the Seminoles most disruptive defender in 2009 with 13 tackles for loss and 6.5 sacks. He needs added weight and strength but shows pop and power when tackling. He is a versatile athlete that has played inside and outside linebacker. Watson reacts well and understands how to maintain leverage on the edge. Watson is best attacking the line of scrimmage and needs technique work and may be a bit of a liability in pure man coverage schemes. Watson is a good football player that will provide depth at linebacker as well as excellent special team?s contributor.
