COACHES' BREAKDOWN: Of all Wake Forest's players, Watts has the most potential to succeed in MLS. A defensive-minded player who can play both defense or midfield, Watts is not just a simple goon set out to crunch anyone who comes near the ball; his feet are still good enough that he can pass well to either switch fields or connect with the offense over distance, dribble his way out of tight spaces, and even play higher up the field if necessary. Watts is great in the air and can head the ball well, but his greatest strength might be his intangibles; the Demon Deacons' midfielder was the heart and soul of his team, and his leadership and ability can elevate his teammates' game. The one knock against Watts is his movement and athleticism, which are passable but not outstanding. For any team looking for a tough, skillful defensive midfielder, though, Watts will definitely be one to watch.
