Summary: Danny Watkins took the typical route to the NFL Draft, growing up in Canada playing rugby and ice hockey. Oh, that's not typical is it? His age is going to work against him, but there are certainly positives. Age brings maturity and life experience. He was interested in firefighting while at Butte junior college and a couple years later found himself taking over for first-round pick Jason Smith at left tackle. This is one of the other problems with him as a prospect because although he performed well at guard in the Senior Bowl, he needs to learn the position in the NFL because that's where he fits. Teams have to weigh all of the pluses and minuses to see if he works for them, and that includes how high of a draft pick to spend.
@BEARDOWNsssssss @Walter plus you have stated that right now Kizer and Trubisky are rated higher by teams and you even believe Davis Webb could be higher, so theres gotta be at least 2 of those quarterbacks available at that 36-40 juncture
@Walter, not to take anything away, but don't you think that, if the Bears do get rid of Cutler (mind you, Rapoport said there was a good chance he would stay), don't you think they would select a defensive back/BPA since they need playmakers then in the second round (or trade up back into the 1st) select Deshaun Watson? It does make sense.
