Dupree and Watt are going to be a dynamic duo.
What a crazy night.
What an awesome pick.
Here we go!!!
I was not big on Watt. I would have taken Foster. That being said. . Prove me wrong kid. .. go get it done.
Welcome aboard TJ Watt
Yes...it got kinda iffy at the end there...with foster still on tbe board
So psyched about this pick, love it. There was a few players Id have been happy with left at our pick but this was the best, IMO.
Cant wait to see him and Bud wreaking havoc!
If he's even half the player his brother is then we're maybe gonna finally see a return to being truly Blitzburg.
Oh... you will be soon.
Just kidding SteelHack..
I understand your concerns.
The talent is there. The question is if he's paid attention to JJ's work ethic. If so, Dupree and Watt will be Lloyd and Greene 2.0.
Good pick. Addresses a need. I can't complain at all.
Love the pick! Welcome to Pittsburgh, TJ!
Watching some highlights on Youtube has me wondering. It seems like he's purely a speed rusher. Does he have any other moves? Not that I'm complaining, it's more curiosity than anything to me.
Salt n peppa
My biggest curiosity with him is IF he wasn't JJ's brother then would this pick be as exciting? Are we judging him on his merits or JJ's?
My exact thoughts.
I hope he is worth it and Foster does not make us regret it. If his last name wasn't Watt would we be making the play for him? Hopefully, his pedigree becomes tangible. He had the lowest rating in the first round....
I could not care any less if his name was TJ Greene (nephew of Kevin Greene).
I look at a propsects body of work and athletic traits, not to mention versatility. TJ has shown to me that he is the mold of a Pittsburgh Steeler.
And how come there wasn't a camera on this dude. I love to see the reactions.
TJ is athletically VERY gifted.
He is raw, maybe you could say boom or bust, but to me that means his ceiling is very VERY high.
I trust Coach Butz to coach him up.
Doesn't hurt having those bloodlines but film and combine results sold me more.
Guy is just scratching the surface. Just hope he doesn't have any more trouble with his knees.
Like this pick
Don't be like Jarvis and cycle juice like everyone else lol.
He kind of sounds like Dupree coming into the draft. Athletic, raw, not much experience at his NFL position.
