Peter King, long time writer at Sports Illustrated, is back with his latest Mock Draft, and he has Cam Newton going #1 overall to the Panthers, which seems to be the growing trend. King has the Birds taking guard Danny Watkins with the 23rd pick. Here’s what he has to say about him
Danny Watkins, G, Baylor
Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado
Baylor coach Art Briles has been saying for the past year that Watkins, the former firefighter from Canada who didn’t play football until junior college, would be a first-round pick. And he was hooted down. Art, you’re going to have the last laugh. Philadelphia would consider pass rushers Aldon Smith and Adrian Clayborn here. But Andy Reid has an affinity for O-linemen, and Watkins is the kind of tough player Eagles fans will love.
