Andy Reid must be reading Right Field (ahem). He followed our advice and went big. With pick No. 23, the Eagles tapped Danny Watkins, a top-notch OG out of Baylor. He is, literally, the man: a 26-year-old rookie and former fireman. The Vince Papale–loving fans at the Linc will love this guy.
Michael Vick should also be pleased. And he doesn’t have to take my word for it. Here is the latest Tweet from Jordan Rodgers, Vandy’s QB and former Watkins teammate at Butte College:
@JRodgers11: Congrats to my boy Danny Watkins. So proud of him!! Glad he protected my backside at butte. Now he’s living his dream
