Scouting Report: Josh Watson
School: Colorado State Position: Inside Linebacker Class: Junior Height: 6-1 Weight: 240 lbs Projected Draft Round: 5-7
A very physical and technique sound tackler that has developed into an instinctual and intelligent inside linebacker. Recognizes plays quickly, but doesn’t allow his instincts to take over, which prevents him from over-committing to gaps. A thumper that rarely misses a tackle, and breaks down rather than trying to tackle through ball carriers. Effective in the passing game as well, and has a knack for interrupting passes. Could project either in the 4-3 or the 3-4, but his talents might best suit the 3-4 ILB that has to be gap sound.
