JJ Watt Declares For the Draft

Updated: January 7, 2011

JJ Watt announced yesterday on twitter that he has made the decision to take his talents to south beach, I mean the NFL Draft.  He promised a few days ago that he would announce the decision promptly.

It is nice to see a player work his way to become a first round prospect out of nowhere.  Reminds me of the Clay Matthews story a little bit.  Although Clay was a walk on and JJ was a transfer as a tight end, both eventually became some of the best pass rushers in the nation.

Best of luck to JJ, some NFL team is going to be very happy to select him this spring!

Here is what JJ Tweeted:

I will be a Wisconsin Badger for life, but at this time I have made the decision to enter the 2011 NFL Draft.
