If I was the FO I'd keep him on his rookie deal and then extend him next year. There is no way we can lose Watt. He is the single most important piece of this franchise. He should be the main reason we, as fans, have hope for the future.
I don't think it matters. If I understand the rookie contract under the new CBA, we don't have the option of extending him or changing his contract at all until after the third season, anyway. I think this is true for all draft picks.
