|NFL Scouts raving about Watkins, Thomas|
|by Tony Crumpton - Associate Editor - Thursday, March 6, 2014 4:02 PM||
Draft Insider's Tony Pauline had one NFL scout at Clemson's pro day say that Watkins' performance was the "best pro-day workout I've ever seen from a receiver."
Watkins wasn't the only Clemson player receiving praise from scouts. Brandon Thomas, whose stock has been on a steady rise the past two months, further improved his draft grade today. Thomas looked terrific in position drills, effortlessly moving around the field. I'm told just about every team in attendance to watch Thomas today has him affixed to their tackle board rather than guard. People I've spoken with feel he's moved into the draft's initial 45 picks and could end up landing in the late part of round one depending how early Zach Martin comes off the board. I'm told the team to watch is the Baltimore Ravens. To date, Thomas has seven official visits on his schedule.
