When it comes to the NFL Draft prospects for the 2022 NFL Draft, there’s no hotter name for the San Francisco 49ers than North Dakota State wide receiver Christian Watson, who played with the rookie quarterback. Trey Lance for three years in college together.

According to Jordan Elliott, Watson met the 49ers during the draft process this week, which should be good news for 49ers fans.

Watson soared early in the draft process, with some analysts naming him the top receiver in the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama, as he featured a good road and hands to go along with his top speed at 6 ‘4, 205 lbs.

With a solid combination, Watson could slot himself out of the 49ers’ draft lineup, if he hasn’t already, but the dream pairing between him and Lance in the NFL could be a possibility.

Last season, Watson proved himself, catching 43 passes for 800 yards and seven touchdowns, averaging 18.6 yards per catch as the top wide receiver on the depth chart.

With Lance at quarterback in 2019, Watson caught 34 passes for 732 yards and six touchdowns, averaging 21.5 yards per catch, while solidifying himself as a high-caliber deep-threat receiver.
