Now he's a bit short armed and he's only about 6'3'' and a half so he's gonna have to move inside to guard, but he's laterally gifted and he can bend. He's got some snap in the run game. He's just a really impressive kid and I joke that if he were two inches taller and three years younger he'd be a first round pick. He'd give you a few years of good ball. He can come in early in his career and play for you.
CN: Where do you project him then, being an older prospect?
WB: It seems there's always one older prospect who goes in the 3rd round so I'll say he's in the 3rd to 4th round range. He's one of the best offensive linemen I've seen all year."
Quarterback Robert Griffin has garnered most of the attention on offense this season, but it has been the play of Watkins that allowed the Baylor offense to flourish. Watkins has done a superb job protecting Griffin's blindside and a solid job paving the way for running back Jay Finley. The result for the Bears is an end to the 16 year bowl drought.
Watkins is finally getting the credit he deserves for taking Baylor to the postseason. Obviously his lack of experience is an issue heading into the NFL, but it is also a good thing. Watkins will only get better with time. However, many NFL teams will look at Watkins and think time is something the 26 year old does not have. Either way, Watkins is a smart player who should be off the board by the end of the third round."
Danny Watkins is just an amazing story: An HOCKEY player, for God's sake, who and a Missionary, who started College late because of it, and only just recently took up FootBall. He's 26.
And yet, he is exceptional Offensive Guard prospect, and while he'll probably go in the mid Rounds, because of his age, he could very well deliver All Pro caliber play, if he's move to Guard. Just LOVE him!!
