With the 200th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles select ... Southern Miss wide receiver Quez Watkins!

For those keeping track at home, Watkins is the THIRD receiver the Eagles have selected this year. They previously took Jalen Reagor in the first round and John Hightower in the fifth. Oh, and they also traded for veteran pass catcher Marquise Goodwin from the San Francisco 49ers.

Watkins is another receiver with a speedy profile. The Eagles are clearly making an effort to get faster, which is great to see. Volume drafting approach. Not all these guys will work out but at least one might stick.

Scouting report via NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein:

Early-entry prospect with adequate size and speed but needs to prove he can rise to the occasion against NFL competition. Watkins’ confidence has been affected by level of competition and his catch focus appears to change when he works into traffic. Hip tightness limits route effectiveness, but he runs well enough to work vertically and across the field with modest separation and above-average jump-ball talent. His leap in production is a good sign, but if he doesn’t do a better job of getting away from press, he will have a hard time making it. The potential outweighs the concerns and he should be a Day 3 selection with a shot at becoming a WR4/5.
