T.J. Watt has workout with 49ers this week

Apr 12, 2017 at 10:49 AM--

According to Jeremy Bergman of NFL Media, Wisconsin OLB T.J. Watt has a workout scheduled with the San Francisco 49ers this week. "Fresh off four workouts with teams in Wisconsin, Watt scheduled workouts with the Saints, Dolphins and 49ers this week and has locked down a flight to Mile High to visit with John Elway and the Broncos on April 18," wrote Bergman.

Watt is a 6-foot-4, 252-pound pass rusher and is the younger brother of J.J. Watt and Derek Watt. After injuries set him back in 2015, Watt accumulated 63 tackles with 15.5 for a loss, 11.5 sacks, an interception, a touchdown, and four passes defended through 14 games as a junior in 2016. That junior performance earned him first-team All-Big Ten honors.

Lance Zierlein of NFL Media, who compares Watt to Paul Kruger, had the following to say in his scouting report:

"A long-limbed effort rusher who posted impressive numbers against the run and pass in just one year as a starter. He is a tireless worker who pursues from snap to whistle and his brother, J.J., will be a tremendous resource for technique and pass-rush plan. While he is unlikely to win a race to the edge, he's a plus run defender who can get to the quarterback with plus hand work and relentless effort."

Tony Pauline of Draft Analyst had the following to say in their scouting report:

"Watt displayed himself as a forceful linebacker and prototypical strong-side player last season. Very effective in the box or up the field, he must improve his skill making plays in reverse but should be productive in the proper system."
