*MSA Rating: The average score of a prospect’s market share production, strength of schedule and age percentile scores

*Explosive Lower Body Strength Score: A score formulated from a prospect’s vertical, broad jump and mass density measured against all his positional peers since 1998.

*Speed Score: A score formulated from a prospect’s 40-yard dash and mass density measured against all his positional peers since 1998.

*Flexibility Score: A score formulated from a prospect’s short shuttle, 3-Cone and mass density measured against all his positional peers since 1998.

 

Metric Analysis: T.J. Watt has a very strong data profile as a multiple Pro Bowl Edge. Above average production and athleticism across the board. There are aspects to nitpick like his speed score and sack score being a bit lower than elite. But all the components are here on paper for another star with the last name of Watt roaming around the NFL. Or at the very least, an underappreciated long-term starter.
