103rd: Armani Watts, S Texas A&M
Watts was a four-year starter for an A&M defense that had some severe ups and downs. However, Watts was a stalwart and a rock for this defense through it all. Watts might be the best true free safety in the draft when it’s all said and done.
He is getting knocked down draft boards because he is a little undersized and doesn’t have top flight speed. However, looking at his body of work at A&M neither of those things hindered him. Watts has phenomenal instincts for the ball and, in spite of his lack of speed, is always around it. He also has been known to knock around some heads as well.
Even adding a difference maker like Tyrann Mathieu at safety, the Houston Texans need to add another guy. Teams nowadays need three safeties to combat these potent passing attacks. Watts will also give RAC an insurance policy in case Mathieu chases bigger money next year.
