Armon Watts Womens Dwayne Haskins Jersey , DLSchool: Arkansas | Conference: SECCollege Experience: Senior | Age: 22Height / Weight: 6-5 / 300 lbsProjected Draft Status: 3rd-6th RoundNFL Comparison: Shamar StephenCollege StatisticsPlayer Overview“One of the bright spots on the Arkansas defense” is probably the best way to sum up Armon Watts’ 2018 season.The Razorbacks were an absolutely brutal 2-10 (0-8 in the SEC) last year, and there weren’t a lot of things to like about their season, but Watts was certainly one of them.Watts was a 3-star recruit from St. Louis, and was a bit of a late bloomer, not making much noise until his senior year.Given the opportunity to start in 2018, however, he took advantage of the role and led Arkansas with 7 sacks and three forced fumbles. What really caught my attention was - while researching picks for an SB Nation Fan Mock - coming across a quote by draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah mentioning Watts in the same breath as guys being discussed as first round picks: “When you look at tiers, in the first-round tier, Quinnen Williams, Christian Wilkins, Ed Oliver, Rashan Gary, who I think is more of an edge guy, Jeffery Simmons, and [Dexter] Lawrence could factor in there in the late 20s,” Jeremiah said. “Then, you get into that next tier for me, you start getting to Jerry Tillery from Notre Dame. I really like Armon Watts from Arkansas, who is just a real strong-handed guy and solid on tape.”StrengthsQuick once he gets goingGreat leverage, stays low“Eye popping” strengthVery good hand usageGood ability to read schemes and reactStrong tacklerPraiseworthy work ethicExcellent size for an interior linemanWeaknessesLack of explosivenessSlow to change directionLimited rangeAverage athleteLet’s see his workHow He Would Fit On The RedskinsPotentially a Tim Settle-like mid to late-round steal Dwayne Haskins Jersey White , Watts is a perfect Jim Tomsula project to continue to feed the Redskins’ DL pipeline for years to come.If we could get this guy with one of our 5th rounders, I’d take it in a heartbeat. While he doesn’t possess the athleticism or burst of guys who will be going in the first round, he’s solidly among the players who make this one of the deepest drafts for defensive linemen in recent memory. By several accounts, Watts is strong as an ox, and was regularly able to have his way with offensive lineman one on one. Given that Watts didn’t have significant playing time until his senior season, there’s still lots of tread left on the tires, and likely considerable room to grow and develop. My sense is, his best days are still ahead of him.While DL is currently the position group of greatest strength for the Redskins, it will take the continued, annual or bi-annual drafting of guys like Settle and Watts to keep it that way. The Eagles’ initial 53-man roster includes four defensive tackles, which is usually the number of players the team has active at the position on gameday.One of those four is Fletcher Cox, who has done limited work this summer as he makes his way back from offseason foot surgery. At a press conference on Saturday after the roster was set, executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman was asked if keeping four defensive tackles meant the team expected Cox to play against Washington.“Yes, I this I that would be fair,” Roseman said. “I was trying to think of something funnier, but I didn’t have anything.”Malik Jackson, Timmy Jernigan and Hassan Ridgeway round out the defensive tackle group.Treyvon Hester was let go and Roseman called Hester “a hard cut” because he’s an NFL-caliber player. If someone agrees, Hester is likely to be claimed on Sunday as teams continue to churn their rosters ahead of Week One.
