Watt recalls brother JJ's draft night as he prepares for his own

T.J. Watt celebrating after returning an interception for a touchdown during the first half of an NCAA college football game against the Purdue in West Lafayette Ind. Frame to grow int

With two older brothers already in the NFL, Steelers first-round pick T.J. Watt intends to carve out his own identity. He trained with his teammates even as he underwent treatment and as his redshirt junior season went on last fall, the power and relentlessness that made him the 2014 ACC Player of the Year returned. His has some nice athleticism and his measurables are impressive.

With the Watt bloodline, the path back from the knee surgeries and the motor he uses to chase plays all over the field, you feel good that he'll work in those areas to become great. Watt-the All-Pro and three-time AP Defensive Player of the Year-and Los Angeles Chargers fullback Derek Watt in the NFL. A 16-year-old in high school, T.J. and his brother Derek couldn't even walk the red carpet with J.J. and were instead forced to walk in the back door of Radio City Music Hall.

The 6-foot-1, 215-pound Smith-Schuster, who has been compared to Anquan Boldin, has a reputation as a sure-handed receiver who is willing to go across the middle and slip into openings. Personally, I didn't see this type of athleticism on tape-I'll have to watch more.

T.J. Watt embraces any talk of potential similarities. J.J. Watt missed most of the Texans 2016 season due to injury.




There's a 100 percent chance that someone in marketing at the National Football League is going to write a song called "I'm dreaming of a Watt Christmas" and then play it for 24 hours straight in the lead-up to the game.

"I looked at the tape, and the tape told me what he was", Saxon said.

Watt picked things up so quickly that the defense was able to use him as a reserve outside linebacker as well as an interior rusher in a nickel package, giving the Badgers another athletic pass rusher. Ramczyk's Saints will play at Lambeau Field in Week 7. Pairing with James Harrison, Watt will likely get the bulk of the load and be used as an outside pass rusher who will be some coverage as well. "I think he catches the ball better than maybe he gets credit for". Much of the success should be attributed to the genius of Kevin Colbert, who always seems to find star players in the draft regardless of the team's draft position.

"Obviously, everybody knows me as J.J. Watt's younger brother", T.J. said. T.J. Watt might just be in for a little more hazing that day. "I don't think people know who I am at this point because I have been in such a big shadow".
