"I can just go out there and compete and just be the quarterback that I am," Watson said. "I don't want to get too focused on what I have to show or what I need to do, because I think I'd lose track of doing the little things. Doing the little things right, completing passes, doing whatever the coaching staffs want me to do at the combine, and just go out there and show what I've got."
