BIO: Two-year starter who totaled 27/431 as a senior, being named an All-Conference pick.
POSITIVES: Solid pass-catching tight end with adequate upside for the next level. Fluid releasing into routes, runs well laterally and adjusts to make the reception in stride. Finds the open space in the defense, runs good routes and gets separation.
NEGATIVES: Not a sudden or explosive player. Lacks true downfield speed. Marginal blocking strength and footwork in pass protection.
ANALYSIS: Watje has adequate size and pass-catching skills to catch on as a third tight end in the NFL.
