Eventually showcases the ability to sit more so into his stance when trying to anchor, but doesn't play low enough to consistently stonewall his man at the point. Possesses average range off the edge, but maintaining his balance and being able to quickly redirect and mirror will get him in trouble. Isn't overly fluid and will have a tough time holding up vs. any kind of counter.
Doesn't generate a ton of snap off the football in the run game either because of that high pad level. Again, initially gets upright off the ball instead of getting into opposing defenders. However, he does do a good job getting his hands under his man, pumps his legs through contact, tries to get his base down and under him, and is a naturally strong kid. Has the ability because of his size to simply overpower defenders at the Conference USA level, but will have a tough time generating the same type of movement because of his lacking ideal leverage into contact.
Possesses an above-average first step when asked to reach defenders off his frame, has some balance through contact and does a nice job sealing on runs away from his frame. Also, looks impressive on scoop blocks, gets his frame quickly around defenders, displays good balance through contact and can quickly seal ball side. However, wastes a lot of motion with his arms as an in-line guy, winds up considerably into blockers and isn't real solid or compact with his punch, despite his long arms.
Impression: A big kid with decent range off the edge and strength. But needs to learn to play lower and tighten up his footwork to have a shot. More of a developmental free agent."
Positive: Hard-working, small area blocker with marginal upside. Blocks with good lean, stays square and keeps defenders in front of him. Solid position blocker who seals defenders from the action. Keeps his head on a swivel and plays with a good degree of awareness. Quick off the snap and blocks down well on opponents.
Negative: Must improve his overall strength at the point. Lacks footwork in space. On the ground too much and must improve his balance.
Analysis: Watt is a well sized blocking prospect who showed flashes the past two seasons yet is still very raw in his overall game. He has enough skill to be placed on a practice squad but would be better off moving from his college position of tackle inside to guard."
