Where is Wisconsin linebacker TJ Watt, little brother of JJ Watt, expected to go in next week’s NFL Draft? According to ESPN, we could see him go in the late-first, early-second round — Mel Kiper has him 47th to Baltimore while Todd McShay has him 32nd overall on his big board. Not bad at all for a guy who switched positions from tight end and dealt with knee injuries.
A snippet of NFL.com’s scouting report on TJ:
BOTTOM LINE A long-limbed effort rusher who posted impressive numbers against the run and pass in just one year as a starter. He is a tireless worker who pursues from snap to whistle and his brother, J.J., will be a tremendous resource for technique and pass-rush plan. While he is unlikely to win a race to the edge, he’s a plus run defender who can get to the quarterback with plus hand work and relentless effort.
You guys already know ESPN and NFL Network will have the home camera setup for TJ and the Watt Fam come draft night, so we obviously have to introduce you to his girlfriend, Dani Rhodes. She’s a fellow Badger and currently plays for the women’s soccer team.
