Saints have workout scheduled with Wisconsin edge rusher T.J. Watt: report

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; From what I've read he's good at what he does. I've watched his highlights and they look great.......so do mine. I like him at 42. I don't think he'll be there but he might. Anybody that needs work should not ...

I like him at 42. I don't think he'll be there but he might. Anybody that needs work should not be a first rounder.imho

There are clusters of players in each round that have strengths we will covet at that position. If Watt is gone we will have other players ranked at a position of need that can make the team better. I like him but I can live without him if I like the selection at 32 or 42 better.

Re: Saints have workout scheduled with Wisconsin edge rusher T.J. Watt: report

For the T.J. Watt detractors, I'd ask (and I know the answer) if you've actually watch this kid play the last two years...

Last year, he caught my eye; this year, starting with the LSU game at Lambeau, he jumped out...

Have watched several of his games on replay streaming, and he made plays at the OLB/DE spot that was very reminiscent of Rickey Jackson...

The bloodlines are always nice, but judge the kid on his own merits with an objective eye and you'll find a d*mn good football player that I'd be happy with at No. 32 or ten picks later at No. 42...

I work Wisconsin and surrounding states during football season(no Packers fan here) but the kid is pretty good. I'm not sold on him playing DE in a 4-3at the pro level but would be a stud in a 3-4 D as an OLB and could slide inside in a 3-4 also.

Watt's teammate Vince Biegel would be a real nice late-round pick.

JP I'm not detracting from the kid I just don't think he's the type
of player we spend a high pick on. It's pretty obvious he'll need 2-3 years to develop before becoming a starter.

And what I've seen is a guy that's taken leaps in development; he was a Tight End just two seasons ago...

He won't take that long to play, in fact, I'd argue he could be ready to take over from Okafor by mid-season...

I wouldn't sweat it anyways, he'll probably get drafted by Atlanta, make the ProBowl along with Vic Beasley (again) because the ATL was at least able to install a 3-4 defense after they said they would...

Of course, I feel sorry for the young man for all the disappointments he'll endure as a Falcon...

His stats are not bad but when he disappeared in games those were really bad games. Nebraska, northwestern and Illinois are not exactly great teams but they held him to little to nothing. That was 3 games in a row too. Purdue game was bad also but I left them off because he got a sack.

If his Brother wasn't famous, he would be a 5th or 6th round pick at best.
