Height: 6-3 Weight: 310 Age: 31
Born: 11/6/1984 Kelowna , B.C.
Selected By: Philadelphia Eagles
Pick (Overall): 23 (23)
Watkins is new to the game of football, but has the strength and athleticism to play at the next level. He does not have the arm length and first step explosion to play left tackle, however he projects to be a quality starting guard. He plays with terrific balance and has the foot quickness to hold in pass protection. Despite his limited football experience, he engages very well with his hands and maintains a strong position. He will occasionally have lapses in his reads, but he has very high upside and will likely be a second day pick.
