Strengths: Nice height and solid build with room to gain bulk ... Long arms ... Holds up well against the run ... Strong football player and can disengage ... Decent pass rusher ... Has solid instincts and does a decent job of recognizing play action.
Weaknesses: Athleticism isn't there ... Stiff in the hips and doesn't have much balance or flexibility ... Motor is very inconsistent ... Size is good, but as of now it isn't anything to rave about (must gain more strength) ... Lacks explosion when the ball is snapped ... Production is simply average, especially considering he was on the same line of Lawrence Jackson and Sedrick Ellis ... Unimpressive overall skill set.
Summary: The most overrated player in the country. I can't believe he is in the top five of so many mock drafts right now (including No. 1 on Todd McFraud's) ... The hype is going on because of whom he plays for; not his individual skill ... Production isn't impressive when you consider the talent around him ... Needs to step up.
Player Comparison: Igor Olshansky. Can't play three-technique, but can be an adequate nose tackle in the 4-3; best fit is at five-technique in the 3-4 where he can plug the run going against offense tackles using his size to his advantage.

As much as I would love for GB to take a corner, I think they go pass rush. Perry, Peppers, Jones, all coming off the books. There isn't a better fit than TJ Watt. Homegrown talent. Most GB fans already love the guy and GB just loves taking the "hard working high motor white guy" ie Clay
