His acceleration is just insane.
He also catches the ball very cleanly. You rarely see him juggle it, or 2nd catch it.
Ya, i pretty much meant now. Falcons throw tons of deep balls to Julio wk in and wk out, and his speed is known now. I always thought he was fast, but he kinda had injury issues at Bama that left em a bit timid at times i think? But either way, Julio is good sized , explosive , deep threat , which i think Watkins also is. I watched Watkins make a deep catch up the right sideline a wk or 2 ago and make the catch with the DB draped all over him, tand he just didn't even phase Watkins, and just slid right down em, and Watkins coasted to a TD.. Thats where i feel hes like Julio. There not scrawny deep threats. They got some strength and size to there games as well.
