Idea up for debate:watson

What I like most about Watson is that he gives us flexibility. When our pick comes up we\'re able to pick the best available LB regardless of his position. If its a MLB we just slide CW over. If its an OLB we keep CW at MLB.
More ammo that suggests we can wait until the 2nd and just pick the best LB on the board. And another in the 3rd wouldn\'t hurt my feelings either.

Courtney Watson may gone on to be a great MLB. And I hope he does. Who wouldn\'t?

But, last year Watson was given a chance to start and he really didn\'t impress me at all. Nothing stood out in Watson\'s game that made me think he is the answer.

Of course, it was only his rookie season and there\'s always room for improvement. And playing MLB behind Howard Green and Brian Young wasn\'t exactly the best situation for a rookie MLB.

Still - Watson was not in position to make many plays. He often looked confused and lost out there. And whatever physical ability he may have didn\'t account for much. And whatever \"intangibles\" he may have didn\'t show up on the field.

I wish I could sit here and say Courtney showed enough promise that I\'m convinced we\'ve got our man at MLB. But, that would be strecthing it a little too far.

The only thing I can say is that I think Watson is a big gamble heading into \'05.

At least Haslett and co. have shown a desire not to place all their eggs in one basket.

Bockwoldt seemed to have much better instints and he seemed much more physical than Watson. Simply put ... Bockwoldt impressed more in his rookie season than Courtney Watson.

excatly-and that is what I think the saints are thinking as well..but I do think that experience is a key at the MLB-which I think is a key position on d.

At times he looked like a rookie, but at times he was quite impressive. For a rookie to come in, start and produce at MLB in the NFL speaks wonders about him. I\'m much more concerned with both our OLB\'s than CW.
More often than not our OLB\'s looked lost and confused. MUCH more than CW.
