The Philadelphia Eagles select Baylor offensive guard Danny Watkins with the No. 23 overall pick of the NFL draft.

Scouts Inc. analysis of Watkins:

Scouts Inc. pros: Works to the whistle. Plays with an edge and can get under opponent's skin. Plays with a mean streak and looks to put defenders on their back. Shows above-average awareness for a player with such limited experience and should only get better with added experience.

Scouts Inc. cons: Doesn't cover enough ground with kick step and struggles to protect the edge working against speed edge rushers but won't be as much of a concern when lines up at guard. Plays with a wide base and can anchor against most defensive linemen but could have a harder time anchoring against elite bull rushers.
