CAPE CORAL, Fla -- With one simple phone call, "asked me what I was doing, am I with my family, and am I ready to be an Eagle."
A college graduation party became a different kind of celebration, "everyone started screaming and yelling," said Watkins' mother, Brandy Green.
As Cape Coral football star Jaylen Watkins went to the Eagles, the first pick in the 4th round of the NFL draft.
"The Eagle has landed," said Green.
Watkins, a Cape High Seahawk turned Florida gator, says Philadelphia is exactly where he wanted to be.
"I'm versatile. that's the main thing they do like about me. I play corner, safety, nickel," said Watkins.
Ready to show off those skills, and ready to show his brother, Buffalo Bills pick and 4th pick overall Sammy Watkins, who's the best watkins on the field, if they ever meet up.
"I would say I'll win. Pretty sure he'll say he'll win too," said Watkins.
The 4th round was also the right time for North Fort Myers defensive star Tre Boston.
"I'm past excited. it's unbelievable. It's more than football," said Boston.
Who believe it or not, didn't always have his eyes on football, until his mom had the idea.
"I thought I was going to be a basketball player. She forced me to play football and I'm like ahhh," said Boston.
Now, the UNC safety is headed back to North Carolina.
"Oh man, I am ecstatic about that. I can't believe I'm going to the Panthers," said Boston.
And already thinking ahead!
"What am I going to bring to the team? Someone that is vocal, someone they can count on. Someone who is going to the ball. I'm going to bring interceptions to the team," said Boston.
He's just grateful to be playing, "when you believe, you succeed. we never had second doubts we'd be here," said Boston.
Both players are about as humble as you can get.
Boston and his mom, just so much love and respect for each other.
Now Watkins also joins another Cape Coral grad Nate Allen in Philly. the two have been talking.
Both players are headed to camp within the next few days.
