Watt's The Verdict On Steelers' First-Round NFL Draft Pick?

T.J. Watt, an outside linebacker out of Wisconsin, was taken by the Steelers with the 30th overall pick in Thursday night's NFL Draft, joining older brothers J.J. and Derek in the NFL.

The general consensus is that Watt, the younger brother of Houston Texans' All-Pro defensive end J.J. Watt, was a solid if not necessarily spectacular pick by the defending AFC North champions. J.J. Watt missed most of the Texans 2016 season due to injury.

The 2014 ACC player of the year, Conner worked out with his Pitt teammates even as he underwent 12 chemotherapy treatments.

Watt redshirted in his first season at Wisconsin as a tight end. "I'm scratching the surface". In 2015, Sutton earned Sporting News First Team All-America honors as a punt returner after leading the nation with an 18.7-yard average and returning two punts for touchdowns. T.J. Watt fills one of them perfectly. Personally, I didn't see this type of athleticism on tape-I'll have to watch more.

"I'm sure he's proud of his family name", said Steelers GM Kevin Colbert, "but I think he wants to make "T.J.' just as proud as the 'Watt" name". If I can do all the things I did this past year, what can I do when I'm under the tutelage of an National Football League coach?

"It's gonna be awesome and I'm gonna be real anxious", Watt said. Last year, the Chargers took Derek Watt, a 24-year-old fullback, in the sixth round.

Steven Ruiz, USA Today: "Grade B. The Steelers are just going to keep drafting these first-round edge rushers until they find a good one".

Wisconsin's defense asked Watt to handle similar responsibilities to the Steelers' nuanced 3-4 set. Ramczyk's Saints will play at Lambeau Field in Week 7. "I looked at him and said, 'Coach, this kid is a first-round pick".

From film study to sleeping habits, Watt learned from J.J. how to prepare like a pro.

"I knew schematically it was a great fit for me and that's why I was intrigued by them so much", Watt said.

Jeremy Fowler, EPSN: "It was no secret the Steelers were looking for pass-rush help. I don't know", Watt said. The "Steel Curtain" that catalyzed four Super Bowls in the '70s generally refers to the team's line, anchored by the franchise's best player ever, Joe Greene. "It's just incredible. We are so proud of James and thrilled that our neighbors got themselves a world-class person and player". I think that's the biggest part of this whole thing.
