JJ Watt "Rocketing UP" draft boards
Who would have thunk it?
MLive.com's Tom Kowalski suggests that Wisconsin DE J.J. Watt "rocketed up" draft boards at the Scouting Combine.
Weighing in at 6'5 3/8" and 290, Watt bench pressed 225 lbs 34 times with 34-inch arms, ran a 4.84 forty, broad jumped 10 feet, and posted a 37-inch vertical. Belief that Watt is just a "try-hard guy" was dispelled in Indy. He also beat out much smaller pass rushers like Aldon Smith in the ten-yard split. Mar. 2 - 12:54 pm et
