Philadelphia Eagles select Danny Watkins

April, 28, 2011
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.
