I have watched a few Wisconsin games this year and Watt has impressed me. He's probably a better fit as a 3-4 OLB, but do you think he could play SLB in a 4-3? What round do you think he would go in and do you think he comes out this year?

I can see mid 2nd, He probably is a better fit as a 3-4 backer than 4-3, he needs to be attacking at all times IMO. He has Packers written all over him. Though, I would be interested to see him with his hand in the dirt to see how he plays a few times

I agree he has been impressive. I mentioned him week one this season and has stood out all season long really. Fine size for the position, plays with good passion, has active hands in the passing lanes and is athletic enough to consistently get pressure off the edge. As much as I dislike saying it, he is a big time talent.

I think he is a 1st round talent personally with his family athletic background and what he has done on the field, also his height is a big plus. Could be a fine 3/4 OLB and is easily one of the top four 3/4 OLB prospect in the up coming draft if he comes out. Sure maybe falls to the 2nd round but no more than that if he comes out.


Wisconsin coaching staff recently clearly does a great job with those linebackers, they all play with max effort, they are all tough and give a consistently aggressive pass rush that is very hard to handle. Not sure if it is Dave Aranda from last year or Tim Tibesar this season but someone is great at coaching linebacker play Tibesar will possibly soon be a D coordinator somewhere else just like Aranda last year.

The length, athleticism and work ethic are all there. Only scratching the surface of his potential, previously being a tight end. Is he JJ? No way, but he looks one of those guys that will be a better pro than college player.

I see TJ running a sub 4.7 40 with other good but not elite measurables. Could be a very good 3 cone guy as well.

Mid 2nd round guy that could go higher if his meaurables are elite. If his next couple of games are good he might as well declare.

Are there any cutups of him on DB? I'd like to see some of his tape.

I did obviously. Did't see anything so I asked because maybe I was missing something. No need to be so pretentious.

There are tons of 2015-2016 Wisconsin cuts on DB as well as full games on NoonKick.

Any chance he could bulk up to 260 or 270 and play 4-3 DE?

3-4 OLB or 4-3 OLB... either way he should be primarily an edge rusher, would be a waste of his greatest skills to utilize him any differently.


Hopefully he stays and becomes a clear cut top 20 prospect, but even now I don't think there's any chance he falls past the 2nd. He's got everything you want in terms of measurables and production for a pass rusher, and of course he is a Watt. He's got godly DNA in him.

I think he goes in the 2nd round. Reads like he could be a real good player.

This guy would be awesome for the Packers.

6'4 - 6'5 at 245lbs looks like he could easily put on another 10-15lbs onto that frame. With Peppers another year older, Perry coming off a very good season but with continuing injury clouds and Matthews consistently injured this season another OLB should be considered.

This is the guy they should target in the mid to late 2nd. I think another project guy like the guy they got this year, but with more upside.

Who's a better prospect? Lawson, but he's more of a finished product.

I'll revise to early - mid 2nd round. What's the thought on where this guy goes in the draft?
