MAC Ht., Wt.: 6'7, 335 40 Time: 5.75 Grade: 2.87
BIO: Two-year starter who originally committed to Iowa out of high school.
POSITIVES: King-sized tackle best as a position blocker. Stays square, keeps opponents in front of him and nicely works his hands. Patient, anchors in pass protection and effectively uses blocking angles. Seals blocks and turns opponents from the point.
NEGATIVES: Lacks footwork, adjustment and lateral range. Big, but a finesse blocker. Not considered a competitive, hard-working lineman willing to take the next step.
ANALYSIS: Though his size and growth potential are intriguing, Watkins has never shown the desire to improve his game. Offers some underlying skills but must pick up the tempo.
