What You Need to Know:

  • Watson is a towering presence at 6’4, 208 pounds.
  • He brings sprinter speed, too: The 22-year-old went on to clock a 4.36 forty at the Combine. He added strong times in the vertical (38.5 inches) and broad jump (11’4”).
  • A 2-star high school prospect, Watson landed in a run-heavy North Dakota offense and stayed for 4 seasons. He never posted huge numbers, maxing out with 732 yards (2019) and 800 yards (2021).
  • FBS defensive backs were no match for him, though. His tape turned up a physically superior talent with impressive build-up speed. Unsurprisingly, he posted some huge YPC totals.
  • He was far from perfect, however, posting a big 12.8% drop rate over the past 3 seasons. And a film study from our own Jared Smola turned up underwhelming route running and contested catch ability. There’s no doubt he’ll encounter a major adjustment in the pros.
  • Green Bay still took a shot on his raw tools, trading up to select him 34th overall.
  • The Packers moved on from Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling over the offseason. They leave ~240 vacated targets behind.
  • Green Bay also added rookie Romeo Doubs in Round 4. He joins an underwhelming WR corps that also includes veteran newcomer Sammy Watkins, Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb and Amari Rodgers.
  • Aaron Rodgers at least remains a top-tier passer. Last year, he ranked 3rd in PFF passing grade; 1st in QBR. We don’t see a significant decline risk, even at 39 (in December).

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Here’s what new Packers OC Adam Stenavich said about Watson at rookie minicamp:

“His combination of size and speed is great,” Stenavich said. “He's a big guy, he can move, he's going to be a problem once he figures things out.”

Note the last part of that quote. There’s no doubt Watson brings long-term intrigue, but his 2022 value figures to be inconsistent given his raw game. Ultimately, he’s not one of our preferred late-round targets.

Christian Watson, WR GB

11:22pm EST 12/31/22

Christian Watson a game-time decision for Week 17

Packers WR Christian Watson (hip) "will test his injury pre-game to see if he can play vs. the Vikings," ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Watson only got in a limited practice on Friday this week and "didn’t take any live repetitions," according to Schefter. Watson will obviously carry elevated risk if he ends up giving it a go. We'll get Green Bay's inactives around 3 pm ET on Sunday.

Packers HC Mike LaFleur labeled WR Christian Watson "day-to-day" with the hip injury he suffered in Sunday's win over the Dolphins. It sounds like Watson dodged a significant injury, but his availability for this weekend's game vs. the Vikings is unclear. We'll monitor the rookie's practice participation throughout the week.

Packers WR Christian Watson suffered a hip injury in Sunday's game at Miami. He's questionable to return. We'll keep an eye out for updates.

Packers WR Romeo Doubs (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Bears. We’ll see if the rookie can make it back for that one after going down in Week 9, but he shouldn’t be in your fantasy plans. Christian Watson, Allen Lazard and Randall Cobb should remain locked in as Green Bay’s top 3 WRs this week.

Packers WR Romeo Doubs (ankle) is out for Sunday night’s game vs. the Eagles. Allen Lazard, Christian Watson and Randall Cobb will continue operating as Green Bay’s top 3 WRs.
