Watkins snaps back after snafu

He’s playing a more physical brand of football since his move to safety. Florida senior Jaylen Watkins is noticeably more aggressive in his play on the field and you can it in his tackling and the way he races to the ball when an offensive guy breaks the line of scrimmage.

There were multiple times in his career that Solomon Patton could have transferred. He wasn’t getting snaps early in his career and was only used in the offense on jet sweeps and screens. He rarely touched the ball, especially when he got down the field. But he didn’t want to leave Gainesville. Patton worked hard in the offseason and turned himself into a trusted member of the Florida offense.
