[QUOTE]Quick question, does anybody think Watt will fall to 17th?

There's a chance it all depends on how things fall in the draft. If there is a QB run early (I'm thinking at least 3 in the top 12) then you could see a couple players drop. It also depends on how teams look at Bowers knee truthfully. He's dropping quick and it might come down a choice between Bowers and Watt. But for arguments sake Here's who I see going before Watt:
Now that's 10 picks with Dal being the obviously spoiler at 9. Dal needs T's, OLB's, and CB too. If Prince falls to them I thin they go Prince but there is a good shot Prince won't make it past SF (a place where a QB could land if they are afraid of missing one later). It's to early to take a T imo so they either trade back or decide between Watt or Bowers. I say Bowers because I think Tenn goes Fairley but if Fairley falls to 9 Dal takes him.
For arguments sake lets say he gets past Dal now we are looking at 11-16. The biggest teams who need DE's are Hou, Minn, Det, Stl, Jax
Hou is in bigger need of OLB's then DE so Aldon Smith looks like a natural fit
Det I have to believe is going T
Jax runs a 43 so even though Watt would give them flexibility I'm thinking Kerrigan or Jordan are just better fits for their system
Stl is a big concern because they want someone opposite Long, however, they need a LB or DT more. Liuget or Taylor could be a possibility.
Minn is another big concern but I have o believe they are targeting Locker. They love the kid and Idon't think anyone believes the kid will be around in the 2nd and maybe not even the late 1st.
Right now I'd put the odds of Watt making it to 17 are 50/50 but at least 1 of Wilkerson or Watt will be at 17
