It's the same for Kaepernick, Wilson, & RG3. Teams will figure them out.
It's possible that Watt can be like Reggie White, Lawrence Taylor, Ronnie Lot, Deion Sanders..... & he finds a way to produce at an elite level regardless. But those guys are rare & I haven't seen one on the defense side of the ball in a long, long time.
Ray Lewis & Brian Urlacher...... maybe?
Hmm, the Packers minimized him to 2 sacks, 5 tackles and 1 assist. The Patriots did a better job on him, holding him to .5 sacks, 3 tackles, 5 assists and 1 forced fumble.
Can't say it's much of a blueprint, but if teams want to use it...go for it.
