Draft Zone Spotlight: Dontel Watkins, WR, Murray State University
The OVC had great receivers this year with Tyrone Goard, Da’Rick Rogers, Quentin Sims, Jeremy Butler and Eric Lora, but there was one wide receiver who really stood out on film when you watched it. That was #17 Dontel Watkins of Murray State. Dontel was one of the Casey Brockman’s main targets and was able to exploit defenses on a regular basis.
