Sammy Watkins is the Real Deal

With respect to Allen Robinson, Clemson's Sammy Watkins is likely the most talented wide receiver Ohio State has faced all year. In 2013, anybody consistently playing sports in front of a camera can be the subject of a dazzling highlight reel... but it doesn't take an NFL scout to realize the talent oozing from this tape.

The kid simply has all the tools. Watkins is as explosive an athlete as he is fluid; he's capable of scoring whenever/wherever he touches the ball. 

Bradley Roby has visions of playing on Sundays next year, so this probably won't be the last time Ohio State's veteran cornerback crosses paths with him on the gridiron. It will undoubtedly be as key a matchup in deciding the outcome of the 2014 Orange Bowl as it will have NFL scouts sitting on the edge of their seats.

It's crazy to realize each prospect could have hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of dollars riding on the outcome.
