    Watt? Who knows, it's too early. I've seen him projected as high as #9 and as low as #40(ish).

    I'd like to see a 3-4 DE drafted, be it Watt, Heyward, Jordan, Bailey, whoever. I don't think, with Warren and Wright returning, a rookie end will see much playing time in 2011, but gawd do we need some depth.

    As for RB, why spend such a high pick unless the guy is can't miss? Starting RBs come from all corners of the draft as well as UDFA. I think some interior line depth would go a lot farther toward helping the long-term interests of the offense.

    Tom Condon as his agent = no chance

    I'm thinking Adrian Clayborn from Iowa before Watt.

    He's extremely undersized and I've heard that his frame is basically maxes out already.

    Being a MSU fan and having watched both Clayborn and Watt, I'd take Watt over Clayborn in a heartbeat. 292lbs @ 6 foot 6 is disgusting. He's also younger.

    All I need to Know about JJ Watt...

    YouTube - Wisconsin Emotional interviews with JJ Watt and Bret Bielema after Rose Bowl loss

    I don't have time to follow college football much at all, between now and April I start looking at mock drafts and checking out highlight reels on Youtube. After watching his highlight reel and seeing the above youtube clip, this is a guy I'm hoping lands here. (which means he prb won't).

    Anyways, I was wonder what are the opinions of those who watch a lot more college football then I do. Can you see JJ fitting in with BB and the Pats?

    Tom Condon is his agent. Snowball's chance in hell.

    Re: All I need to Know about JJ Watt...

    I've heard the talk about the agent before, but the reality is, once he's drafted, the agent doesn't really have alot of say, they are pretty much slotted a salary, and really don't have much leverage.

    Re: All I need to Know about JJ Watt...

    He is listed as an inch taller and 8 lbs less then Ty Warren, so I'm not sure how thats true. Also once guys get on an NFL team from the college ranks, they often put on more muscel.

    Didn't stop Condon from making Watson hold out 18 days...

    And it didn't stop Watson from having a decent career as a N.E. Patriot

    Those days are over. Back then the Patriots had leeway as to offering the length of contract.

    That can't happen anymore.

    This kid looks like an ideal fit at that #17 slot if the Patriots don't trade up.

    For a 300 pound kid, he looks to have some mobility.
