KC Chiefs could replace Watkins with…
One of the bigger receivers in this draft, Nico Collins, has a lot of upside value late in the draft. Collins is a physical receiver with a good burst off the line and the ability to make tough grabs. His frame is enticing for many teams as he is 6’4 and 216 pounds. and he uses it well.
He is a very raw receiver though, as he is an average route runner, is not the fastest, and does not have the most consistent hands. At the moment he is tabbed as a day three pick landing anywhere from round four to round seven, so he has a lot of question marks on him.
If the KC Chiefs selected Collins he would have to develop for a year or two, as he is a raw receiver who lacks in some areas. This would purely be a wait-and-see pick to see if Collins can get it all together, but he could also be like his former teammate Donovan Peoples-Jones who also had some problems in his game but showed up for the Browns last year.
Here is yet another late-round pick with a lot of upside as a true receiver. Josh Imatorbhebhe has a lot of talent but is very raw as a whole. His strengths as a receiver include top-end speed and explosiveness, with the ability to make a lot of contested catches through contact. He also has the frame of a receiver at 6’2 and 220 pounds.
Imatorbhebhe also has a very key weakness in his route running not being the greatest along with his YAC ability. While he is a very raw prospect he grades out as a round six or seven pick in the draft, making him a value pick for any team that wants to develop a receiver who has a lot of potential.
Tamorrion Terry is probably going to become one of the best value picks in this draft as he has a mostly complete skill set. Coming out of Florida State, Terry has a unique blend of athleticism, length, speed, and ability to catch contested balls. While Terry has a complete skill set, he doesn’t have a whole lot of elite traits, but he has the frame at 6’4 and 210 pounds.
Although Terry seems to have a complete skill set in the makings he has a couple of weaknesses in his game. These weaknesses are he has butterfingers and is not the most technically sound route runner. Both of these means he has a lot of dropped balls and he mostly relies on his athleticism and size to beat corners, which might not work in the NFL and especially not with the Chiefs considering how often they air the football out.
If the Chiefs pick him up he would instantly be a starter and replace Watkins as a younger and more athletic wideout, and plus why not pick “Scary Terry.”
