CUTigers' Top 25 in '13: No. 14

After looking at a former defensive tackle, it's time to take a look at a few current defensive tackles on our list. Up first is Josh Watson

CUTigers continues the list of the 25 players we think will have the most productive seasons in 2013.

No. 14

DT Josh Watson, Redshirt Junior
Watson spent a year at Hargrave Military Academy before signing with Clemson. He was a full qualifier out of high school, but didn't have any D-1 offers. Following his post-grad season, he had close to 10 offers.

The Resume

After playing just 21 snaps during his redshirt freshman campaign, Watson logged 461 snaps in 2012, which was second-most among Clemson defensive tackles.

He recorded 54 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss and three sacks last season.

Moving Forward

The 6-foot-4, 285-pound redshirt junior was listed as a starter beside Grady Jarrett on the post-spring depth chart.

Clemson typically rotates five defensive tackles in and out through the course of the game. Since there was no turnover at the position after last season, Watson is projected to play close to 500 snaps again this fall.
