Carlos Watkins, DT, Clemson

Carlos Watkins - 2017 NFL Draft

The Goods:

School: Clemson Position: DT Class: Senior Height: 6-3 Weight: 305 lbs Projected Draft Round: 1-3

Quick Quote:

“He fires off the snap with the movement skills to cross the face of blockers and redirect his momentum in tight spaces to close on the ball carrier.” –Rob Rang (1/3/2017)

Scouting Report:

Flashes ability to get the quarterback, and has been productive. He has the initial burst and explosiveness off the snap, but has a lot of work to do on his mechanics and footwork.  Has a strong frame, but looks like he could continue to build lower body strength. Most likely a 4-3 three technique, but teams will need to determine if they project his as an even bigger and stronger player, or if he can be developed into more of an elite, penetrating tackle.
