Scouting Report
The younger brother of NFL superstar J.J. Watt is built on a smaller scale than his accomplished sibling, but reputed to work every bit as vigorously. Presents a dual option as a conventional lead-blocking fullback/short yardage runner in two-back sets, and sure-handed receiver with the speed to out-run linebackers and work downfield routes. Not exceptional in any department, he is unlikely to generate significant offense and may be limited to a special teams role.
Long Range Potential: Depth fullback and special teamer.
