Ourlads' Profile:

2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DEREK WATT: Wisconsin, 6017 234 4.77. Four-year starter from Pewaukee, WI. A four-year All-Academic Big-10 player who has no problem learning assignments. A willing, physical, and gritty blocker both as a pass protector and a run blocker. A football smart athlete with good visual awareness on blitz pickup. Walls off the corner blitz or cuts off inside stunt penetration. Can square up a defender and play with a good base. Can move and adjust to kick out run support corners or safeties. Drives his feet on contact. An impact blocker who stays engaged on contact. A third guard type blocker in the backfield. Good vision, feet, strength, and courage. East-West Shrine notes: Demonstrated during the week that he is far more than being the younger brother of the best NFL defensive football player (JJ Watt) on the planet. He impressed the scouts by being the jack-of-all-trades with his blocking, catching, and running the ball. With work he may also become an NFL long snapper. Pro day numbers: 33.5/VJ, 9-8/BJ. 2015 stats: 45 yds, 5.0 ypc, 0 TD, 15 rec, 139 yds, 9.2 ypr, 0 TD. Not invited to Combine. Sixth/seventh round. (A-31 5/8, H-9 5/8, BP-19, SS-4.31).
