As a redshirt sophomore, Watson caught 34 passes for 732 yards and six touchdowns and was named second-team All-Missouri Valley Football Conference (MVFC).

He had 19 catches for 442 yards and one touchdown and was named first-team All-MVFC and 1st team All-American(AP) as an All-Purpose player in his redshirt junior season, which was shortened and played in early 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

He repeated as a first-team All-MVFC selection, and was named second-team All-American(AP) after catching 43 passes for 801 yards and seven touchdowns in his redshirt senior season.

Watson and the Bison won the 2021 FCS national championship, beating Montana State 38-10.

He missed almost the entire postseason in his senior season. Watson also played in the 2022 Senior Bowl where he was voted National WR of the Week.


There’s no doubting Watson’s speed. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.36 seconds at 6-5 and over 200 pounds at the NFL Scouting Combine.

It took five years, but North Dakota State running back Ty Brooks finally admitted he wasn’t the fastest player on the team. That happened earlier this week when he gave the No. 1 billing to receiver Christian Watson.

“Shoot, Christian is probably faster, you heard it here, Christian is fast,” Brooks said.

Brooks’ admission blew some of his teammates away in the fact they thought they would never hear him say it.

“Christian is up there,” Bison quarterback Trey Lance said. “He can take off. You saw Ty, if Ty gives the dude credit for being fast, he’s gotta be fast, because Ty doesn’t give a whole lot of credit.”

How fast? Watson topped out at running 23 miles per hour this year, approaching the speed limit of most of the streets in Fargo.

Receiver Phoenix Sproles hit 20 mph in one game. When Kobe Johnson returned a kickoff for a touchdown against Youngstown State, his top speed on the play was 20.6 mph.
