ESPN's Mel Kiper has released his NFL Mock Draft 4.0 and has Clemson wide receiver Sammy WatkinsSammy Watkins
Wide Receiver (2011 - 2013)

Fort Myers, FL
View Full Profile drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars (3rd overall).
No other Clemson players were drafted in the first two rounds of Kiper's mock draft.
Analysis: The temptation to take a quarterback here may exist, but I look at the trajectory of this organization, both in performance and in personnel development, and I believe the Jaguars will look to take the best player available here, and in Watkins, they also add a dynamic talent at a position of need. Given the uncertain future of Justin Blackmon, the top two wide receivers on the roster are Cecil Shorts and Ace Sanders. Neither has the upside of Watkins, who will make the QB -- whoever that ends up being -- better.
