When the Philadelphia Eagles burned their first-round draft pick on Danny Watkins two Aprils ago, he was projected to slide in at right guard and stick there deep into the future. After making 12 uneven starts as a rookie in 2011, Watkins eventually was benched last season and now looms as a potential cut, according to Vaughn Johnson of Philly.com. Watkins also made our list of veterans hurt by this year's draft. With first-round pick Lane Johnson likely to start at right tackle across from bookend Jason Peters -- and Jason Kelce penciled in at center -- that leaves Watkins to battle Todd Herremans and Evan Mathis for snaps inside. Watkins ranked 54th among 81 qualifying guards last season, per ProFootballFocus. His pass blocking especially was disastrous.
