Today we take a look at where Wisconsin's first round draft picks are projected to go by ESPN's Todd McShay.
Unfortunately his mock draft is only available to ESPN Insiders. Fortunately, we have access and can share with you his projections:
McShay has Watt going No. 10 overall to the Washington Redskins, writing:
With no quarterback or nose tackle worth the pick, Watt would still offer an immediate upgrade to the defensive front seven. He has the size and strength to two-gap as a 5-technique and can potentially provide more on passing downs than most 3-4 ends in the NFL.
By the way, you hear the terms "3-technique" and "5-technique" a lot when scouts breakdown potential defensive linemen. The terms refer to where the linemen line up against the offensive line. A 3-technique lines up between the guard and tackle shading towards the guard. A 5-technique lines up on the outside of the tackle and inside the tight end if there is one. Watt is obviously more a 5-technique.
McShay has Carimi headed to the New York Giants at No. 19, writing:
This is right where we project Carimi, and he would make sense both on the field and financially. Taking him would allow the Giants to move David Diehl -- who is signed through 2013 and receives escalators from $750,000 to $1.1 million for every season he plays at tackle rather than guard.
If Carimi were to fall further, the Chiefs, Colts, Seahawks and Bears would all love him. There's no way he would slip past the Bears at No. 29.
