Terrell Watson could quite possibly be the best running back you’ve never heard of. At 6-2 and almost 240 lbs, he brings a much different body type than most of the higher-rated players. But don’t let his massive size fool you: Watson can dance. He is a big, physical runner, who can punish defenders, yet at the same time make some surprisingly agile cuts.

Watson had an incredibly productive career at Azusa Pacific, averaging 6.7 yards per carry and scoring 29 touchdowns in his senior season alone. He has proven himself as a workhorse back with a great nose for the end zone. Besides his astounding college production, Watson has no off-the-field issues and receives glowing reports about his character.

Despite his numbers and character, Watson is still relatively unknown, and might possibly have to wait until the 6th round to hear his name called. According to Walterfootball.com, the Houston Texans worked out Watson, who could prove to be a fantastic value come draft day.
