Draft Analysis:

Bucky Brooks' take: Watkins is another big-bodied offensive tackle with size and strength. He creates a little push in the running game, and is a high-motor player with outstanding intangibles.

  • 6'4" Height
  • 34 5/8" Arm Length
  • 338LBS. Weight
  • 10" Hands

Overview

Watkins played offensive guard for two years before switching to both right and left tackle as a senior. He is huge and can work well in the run game to get a push. He is a big-bodied project at the next level and projects to be a late-round pick for a team needing lineman depth.

Analysis

Strengths

Watkins is a massive blocker who displays athletic ability in his movements and can get upfield when pulling or working toward a linebacker. He is not an explosive player who will blow back a defensive lineman, but once engaged he gets the job done. He uses a strong base to stay on his feet and finish blocks. He has not shown much leg drive to drive defenders back in the run game, but he has been adequate in both the run game and pass protection.

Weaknesses

Watkins can labor at times to get upfield and does not work well in space. His footwork in his pass set suggests that he may be better off moving inside to guard, where he has worked before. He may need to shed some weight to move more competitively at the next level.
