Texans' Carlos Watkins: Has opportunity with Wilfork retirement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watkins could be part of the rotation at nose tackle, where snaps will be available following the expected retirement of Vince Wilfork, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Watkins, selected in the fourth round (142nd overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft, played both nose tackle and defensive tackle at Clemson, where his quickness produced eye-popping sack totals from the interior defensive line. With the Texans, he'll be deployed as a run stopper, meaning he'll need to add strength over the course of the summer.

Texans' Carlos Watkins: Lands in Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texans selected Watkins in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 142nd overall.

Watkins was a key member of Clemson's national title run, racking up three tackles for loss from the defensive interior in the College Football Playoff. He also showed an ability to get to the quarterback with 10.5 sacks in his final season at Clemson. Watkins will be a solid addition along the Texans' defensive line, but it will be difficult for him to replicate that same pass rush production at the next level.
