    Everybody keeps comparing Watt to Carricker. Does Watt rush the passer better or is he stouter against the run ? It looks like Watt is in consideration for the 9th pick and all these Carricker comparisons are making me dread the idea. Can anybody tell me why Watt is better ? thanks

    He's even more white than Carriker. Almost albino, even.

    Thanks fish I read that article earlier and I couldn't get a clear picture on Watt. That's what prompted the question.Scouts seem to be split on him.

    Wish I could add more, but I don't know squat about Carricker. Watt seems like a swell kid. I don't want him as much as several other guys though (Quinn, Smith, Jordan, Fairley, I'll stop as this list is pretty long).

    Watt is a much better pass rusher, much better no give up motor and Watt has played DE, DT, and even stand up on the ends like a LB. Carriker never did all that.

    When I watch Watt, I don't see Carriker at all. The only reason why people make this comparison are because they both are white, both are the same size, both going to be drafted 1st round at about the same pick.

    But when I watch Watt play, Justin smith pops into my mind. I see alot of Justin Smith is Watt.

    Carriker had 7 sks as a senior and 9.5 sks as a junior. He was more productive as a pass rusher than Watt. 13th overall by the rams show he was regarded just as highly.

    Watt is ranked 11th in Gosselin's top 100.

    (Tyron Smith is ranked seventh.)
