Earl Watford, G (6-foot-3 5/8, 301) - Watford was at the NFL Scouting Combine, and kept his numbers posted in Indy. He did position drills only. Watford has 34-inch arms, which is long for a lineman.
James Madison hasn't had a player selected in the NFL draft since 2010 (when both linebacker Arthur Moats - by the Buffalo Bills - and return specialist Scotty McGee - by the Jacksonville Jaguars - were picked in the sixth round). The most famous James Madison alums to have played in the NFL are defensive end Charles Haley (a fourth-round draft pick in 1986) and Gary Clark (a supplemental draft pick in 1984). - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
WEAKNESSES: Dominated lower level competition but relies more on technique, toughness and tenacity rather than brute strength. Can get pushed back into the pocket, especially when his pad level rises. Shows good -- but not great -- ability to adjust to defenders at the second level -- and that was versus CAA competition. Sometimes is too willing to prove his competitiveness and will play through the whistle, potentially earning flags at the next level.
COMPARES TO: Chris Chester, OG, Washington Redskins -- Like the former Oklahoma product, Watford projects best in a zone-blocking scheme due to his athleticism. Given time to acclimate to the jump in competition, he could emerge as a legitimate starter.
