I know the consensus (from me and most here) is that Watkins is the top rated WR. Do you think any GM's in the league have Evans ahead of Watkins? Just asking because I heard Polian say that Matthews was the best WR in this class. Other scouting people have said that the gap between Watkins and Evans is very slim. I don't agree but what are your thoughts on the GM's boards?
Well, let's make the comparison line by line to find out who is better...
Rushing: How many rushing yards do they each have? How many rushing TD's do they each have? How many times have they each broken a long run for a touchdown? How many times have they each broken a tackle?
Kickoff returns: How many return yards do they each have? How many return TD's do they each have?
Screens: How many times have they been used on screens? How many yards do they each have on screen plays? How many touchdowns do each of them have on screen plays?
Passing: How many passing yards do they each have? How many touchdown passes?
Receiving: How many receiving yards do they each have? How many touchdown catches? How many receptions? How often do they break tackles after the catch?
I know it's very close, but after you compare these things, you will see that one of them has a slight edge.
