Watt did what in the Rosebowl? Nadda!
Look, good college player, good guy but doesn't show up in the big game.
Gets burned on his gap too much on running plays.
Will be a solid pro but not a stud. A Greg Ellis type of pick. We can get an X factor level of player.
Marcel Dareus in his last 2 bowls just took games over on that side of the ball.
If I have to chose between the 2 at # 9, Dareus, who is going to be a stud, no questions asked.
Plus he can play top notch on all spots on the front 3 of a 3-4.
Gives us so much more flexibility and is more pro ready than Watt.
