Clemson junior wide receiver Sammy Watkins has been a special player for the Tigers for the three years he’s been on campus. His coach, Dabo Swinney, doesn’t seem to think Watkins will be signing up for a fourth go, however. Swinney told reporters today at his weekly press conference that he’ll “be surprised” if Watkins doesn’t move onto the pros after this season. Swinney also believe that the standout wide receiver should be a top-10 pick in the NFL draft. Dabo on NFL draft: “Sammy Watkins is a top-10 pick. I’d be surprised if he came back. But I didn’t think Spiller was coming back.” — Greg Wallace (@gc_wallace) October 29, 2013 Watkins has put up some impressive numbers in his collegiate career – during his freshman season, he caught 82 balls for 1,219 yards. He also leads the Tigers this season with 58 receptions and 813 receiving yards. He certainly has the potential to be a top-10 pick, as Swinney believes, but he’s projected more in the 15-20 range by most scouts. We’ll find out soon enough if Swinney’s projection is correct.
