Exactly. He has deep speed and is physically impressive (read, can win jump balls). He just doesnt produce and bombed in LA. I feel he lacks natural receiver skills to compliment his measurables. Tyreek Hill is so much better its scary.
He didn't produce in LA in large part b/c he had about a month to learn a different playbook. Yet in a "non-producing year," he scored eight times. I think the evidence will also show McVay made Goff's reads easier by having him focus on one side of the field more often than not. Given his comfort level and familiarity with Woods/Kupp, that side was usually opposite Watkins, who got used more as a clear-out receiver.
I won't deny Hill is a freaky talent and a more dynamic playmaker than Watkins. But don't hold Watkins' situations thus far (Buffalo and a late arrival to LA) against him.
Only three of Hill's 13 career touchdowns have come inside 20 yards, including none last year on four RZ targets. Even for a freak like Hill, regression is bound to strike sooner or later if he doesn't start getting more looks inside the 20.
