Clemson DT Carlos Watkins accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.
Watkins led the Tigers with 10.5 sacks in 2016 as a 300-pounder. Due to the presence of frosh DT Dexter Lawrence, Watkins (6-foot-3, 305 pounds) often lined up outside this fall. In the NFL, he'll likely return to DT. In addition to his 10.5 sacks, Watkins totaled 50 tackles and 12.5 tackles for loss to earn first-team All-ACC honors for the second time. Jan 16 - 3:59 PM

Clemson redshirt junior DT Carlos Watkins announced that he will return to school.

Watkins likely would have been a mid-round selection had he opted into the process. Among junior defensive tackles, CBS ranks him No. 10. Since many players above him left early for the NFL -- A'Shawn Robinson, Andrew Billings, Robert Nkemdiche, etc. -- Watkins is going to be one of the best senior tackles in the country next year along with guys like Chris Wormley and Eddie Vanderdoes. The 295-pounder was a second-team All-ACC pick this past fall.
