Texans selected Clemson DT Carlos Watkins with the No. 142 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.
Watkins (6’3/309) made 30 starts on the defensive line, tallying 26 career tackles for loss and 14 sacks. He earned first-team All-ACC as both a junior and senior, and second-team All-America in 2016. A three-technique power rusher who manhandled heralded Ohio State C Pat Elflein when they met last year, Watkins’ game tape reveals an inconsistent motor, and his pre-draft athletic numbers largely underwhelmed. Still, Watkins has the body type, toughness, and physicality of a high-floor prospect who should contribute in a rotation, even if he never becomes a top-shelf, every-down NFL lineman.
