J.J. Watt’s baby bro ready to run him over in NFL
Derek Watt credits his big brother J.J. with showing him how to get to the NFL and thrive there, but now that he's in the league too, he's ready to run him over.
And he says his parents will be rooting for him when they face off.
“He's had his chance. I think they'll be rooting for me to make my mark,” Derek Watt told the Loose Cannons this week.
Watt, a fullback from Wisconsin, was drafted by the San Diego Chargers in the sixth round in April. He blocked for Melvin Gordon in college and is doing it again in the pros, as the Chargers drafted the former Badgers running back in the first round.
He'll try to clear a huge hole for him when the Chargers play at Houston on Nov. 27.
“We've had brief little talks about it lately,” Derek said. “That's going to be a big one for my family.”
May the best brother win.
