2011 NFL Draft Cowboys Prospect Watch: JJ Watt, DE, Wisconsin

Most draftniks will have the Dallas Cowboys focusing on defensive end or cornerback with their first selection in the upcoming NFL Draft. One prospect, in particular, is Wisconsin defensive end J.J. Watt who was slotted to go to the Cowboys by ESPN’s Mel Kiper in one of his previous mock drafts.

Watt has a non-stop motor and variety of moves that could help him get a rush on the opposing team’s quarterbacks. That is just what the doctor ordered for the five-technique to help Jay Ratliff continue to shine. He ended the year with 21 tackles for loss, 10 QB hurries, seven sacks, three forced fumbles, one interception and three blocked kicks.

Most recently, Watt has gained some attention after a workout video of his was aired on ESPN’s Sportscenter. In the video, Watt works with speed coach Nick Winkelman as he prepares for this week’s NFL Scouting Combine. Check out the video after the jump.
