Deacon, thanks for your excellent input.
A couple of follow-up questions come to mind, based on the Percy Harvin comparison but not exact match.
1. Do you feel Sammy Watkins' skills and makeup would make him a better fit on the outside or in the slot? In the case of Harvin, he's better suited for the slot.
2. How do you rate Watkins' NFL potential compared to another WR with Vikings connections, Cordarrelle Patterson? The latter demonstrated tremendous multi-dimensional playmaking ability as a rookie in 2013.
I'm very interested to see how Watkins is going to perform against an NFL-caliber press corner. I don't think he's ever been lined up against one in college, so if he can produce against one, then I would leave him outside to threaten the Defense. All that is is my obtuse way of saying "I don't know".
I think Watkins has much more potential that Patterson. To me, Patterson is a Randy Moss-lite. He can stretch a Defense. Watkins seems to me like he can rip through a Defense like a chainsaw through a teddy bear.
