Bio

In the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft, the Chargers selected Watt, a three-year starter and a two-time first-team All-Independent FBS pick at Notre Dame.

In 2013, Watt was part of an offensive line that allowed just eight sacks, tied for second-fewest in the nation. At the end of the season, he received the school’s Pietrosante Award, which is given to Notre Dame football student-athletes who best exemplify the courage, loyalty, teamwork, dedication and pride of the late Irish All-American fullback. Pietrosante was Notre Dame's leading rusher in 1957 and '58 who went on to become a number-one draft pick and a two-time All-Pro selection with the Detroit Lions. Pietrosante died of cancer on Feb. 6, 1988. The recipient is determined by a vote of the players and past winners have included former NFL players Tom Zbikowski, Jeff Faine, Harrison Smith, Aaron Taylor and Chris Zorich.

In 2012, he started all 13 games as Notre Dame went 12-1 and played Alabama in the National Championship game. One of his teammates on that team was Chargers linebacker Manti Te’o. During that 2012 season, Notre Dame’s offensive line allowed just 16 total sacks and they cleared holes for their running backs to amass more than 200 yards in seven games, their most such efforts since 1996.

Watt hails from a family with a significant lineage in college football. His older brother, Kevin, played defensive end at Northwestern from 2007-11. His father, Rich, played at Division II Hillsdale College in Michigan. His uncle, Bobby Watt, played at Brown University, while his grandfather, William Watt, and his great uncle, Dan Hurley, both played at Harvard.

One of Watt’s hobbies is collecting baseball cards. His most prized card is autographed by Nolan Ryan.
