STRENGTHS: Possesses a lean, athletic frame. Good overall athleticism. Light on his feet and possesses good flexibility and body control. Good quickness off the snap and has the ability to adjust in space to moving targets, making him an ideal candidate for zone-blocking schemes. Bends his knees and generally plays with good leverage. Has the arm length (33 3/4 inches) and mobility to warrant a look at offensive tackle. Demonstrated better strength than expected during practices at the East-West Shrine Game, holding up well despite the jump in competition. Competitive. Doesn't back down from a challenge.

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.

I think Arians really wants to run a zone heavy running scheme. Cooper and Watford are two of the best interior lineman in terms of athleticism.

I don't really know how I feel about this pick. Seems eerily similar to the Kelemete pick last year which I didn't like. Just seems like we filled a need but with a lesser prospect.

Edit: Again, I'll have to watch some tape on the guy because this guy flew under my radar.

Watford is another guy that can pull and get to the 2nd level very very well. Seems to have the perfect attitude both on and off the field as well. I'm warming to this pick.

They have been doing some work with him at Center. I think he can go to the PS also.

I would have preffered Barrett Jones...I've never even heard of this guy.

Hoping he has a great offseason and beats out Snyder. Cooper is a LG so I'd rather move Colledge to the right side.

JMU alum here. You guys got a great Guard there. The scouting report was dead on but watch this guy's tenacity. He's a real monster when mad.
