CBS Sports' National NFL Insider, Pat Kirwan:
Watkins is a Southwest Florida kid who happens to be the best receiver in the draft and a game-breaker.
In this scenario, Kirwan has the Bucs moving up to the fifth overall pick to get Watkins. I agree that a move up will be necessary to land Watkins, but I'm skeptical that the Bucs would be willing to give up enough to make the jump.
Rob Rang (CBSSports.com):
No one attacked free agency like Tampa, which gives head coach Lovie Smith and general manager Jason Licht plenty of options with this pick. Should the draft's most dynamic receiver fall in their lap, the choice might be an easy one..."
Too many teams picking ahead of the Bucs could use an electrifying playmaker like Watkins, so it's extremely doubtful that he ends up in Tampa Bay unless the Bucs move up for him. If he does indeed slip to them for some reason, it shouldn't take more than five seconds for them to turn in the card with Watkins' name on it.
The Bucs don't have a plethora of picks and have multiple needs to fill in this draft. Combine that with the fact that Watkins isn't likely to last until the seventh overall pick, and it's doubtful that you'll see Watkins in those new red and pewter threads in 2014.
