Projection is a significant component of evaluation and NDT Scouting’s Kyle Crabbs presents a case for T.J. Watt as prospect worth that initial three-year investment.
One of the toughest aspects of scouting talent is projecting development. NDT Scouting’s Kyle Crabbs RSP Film Room selection, T.J. Watt has aspects of a project.
He’s light and lean for an edge player, which is why some will write him off as the Dan Gronkowski of the defensive side of the ball—a talented and productive sibling of a star, but lacking the prowess to achieve the same professional heights. But Crabbs shows us things about Watt’s game that could translate immediately and elements of Watt’s play that indicate he’s a player who still has room to grow.
In this episode, you’ll see why Crabbs calls Watt a film junkie with excellent hands and burgeoning power whose body could eventually match his mind for the game.
