For all you expert talent evaluators out there, watch the tape below and tell me if you see a future NFL All-Pro. Before he was the best defensive player in the NFL, before he was a Second Team All-American, Watt was a marginal, two-star recruit from Nowhere, Wisconsin, weighing interest between Purdue and Cincinnati before ultimately signing with Central Michigan.

A lot happens between Friday nights and Sunday afternoons, and no one personifies that better than Justin James Watt.
