NFL Films senior producer Greg Cosell watches a lot of football film.
So when he says Sammy Watkins could be the best receiving prospect since A.J. Green and Julio Jones, it's something that will catch your attention.
Speaking on 104.5 FM in Nashville, Cosell touted Watkins' abilities as a receiver and how he'll translate into the professional game.
"There's no debate here," Cosell said. "I think Sammy Watkins, based on what I've seen, is the best wide receiver in this draft."
Cosell went on to say Watkins is the best since that 2010 draft when Green and Jones were taken in the first round.
Watkins is a different type of receiver than Green and Jones. He's just 6-1 and 205 pounds, compared to the tall frames the other two have. But Watkins is an explosive playmaker when he has the ball in his hands.
If Cosell's assertion pans out, there will be a team that's very happy with selecting Watkins.
