Packers hope Christian Watson ban creates big plays

GREEN BAY, WI – Christian Watson’s North Dakota production, with 20.4 yards per reception and two touchdowns on rebound, was impressive.

Watson’s time – 4.36 seconds in a 40-yard dash while standing 6-foot-4 1/8 in the Scouting Combine was also impressive.

Another thing that impressed Green Bay Packers coach Matt LaFleur about the team’s selection for the second round.

He’s big, fast, physical,” LaFleur said after enlisting. “One thing I really liked is, when I watched him get banned, I think that says a lot about the player. His desire, especially in this position, because we all know these guys, they want to get out there, they want to get the big plays. But what are they willing to do? To do for their teammates? I watched one of his blocking reels, which isn’t the most exciting reels when you’re talking about wide receivers, but just to see the effort he put in that side of the game.”
