2013 Draft Overview:
Earl Watford may be the most underrated offensive lineman that I have seen in the 2013 NFL Draft. There is always the occasional starting left tackle that falls into the 3rd or 4th Round, but, there are many great guards and right tackles that are found in the middle rounds. Earl Watford is ranked as the 14th best OG on CBS Sports and 9th by Draft Countdown.
On the first day of the 2013 NFL Scouting combine, Watford has impressed me as much as anyone not named Joekel or Warmack and that is saying a lot as they are the top offensive line prospects at their positions.
Watford has shown speed, a 5.06 40 time, and has looked very good in position drills. Combined with his 25 knockdowns last season and the fact that he only gave up one sack in 11 starts last season, I can see him getting drafted by a zone blocking team as high as the top of the 3rd Round.
My Ranking: 4th best OG
