“We actually found he’s gonna be following me around the field, so I’m gonna have to be prepared for his jams,” Watkins said. “He’s very smart. I have to be very competitive and smart off the ball.”
Watkins, the fourth overall pick in May’s draft, has 24 catches for 284 yards and two touchdowns this season.
“I’m put to the test early. That’s what I look forward to. Going out there and competing with him. I know there’s gonna be some good and bad,” Watkins said. “But actually, it will just help our offense out with just keeping me in tune. I can’t rest one play. I’ll be engaged each play
“Really get the best matchup of the year and I got to come out and prepare. I think the scout team is doing a great job. I got those guys being a pest, so I can be ready to perform Sunday.”
