Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt is stumping for his brother, former Wisconsin linebacker T.J. Watt after what J.J. called a “dominant” performance at the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine.

T.J. Watt will be the third Watt sibling to make the NFL after Derek Watt was drafted by the then-San Diego Chargers last season and played well in his rookie year. T.J. projects to be a solid run-stopper and productive in coverage in the pros and is projected to go as early as the second round in April’s NFL Draft.

After what he accomplished in Indy Sunday, however, and based on his bloodlines, it’s possible he’ll rise even higher than that.
