Nick Herbig posted a strong career as a pass rusher while at Wisconsin. However, he’s teaming up with one of the best in the NFL to begin his career, and Herbig is already trying to add stuff to his repertoire.

The Pittsburgh Steelers selected Herbig in the 4th round of this year’s draft. That puts Herbig in the same defense that includes fellow Badger TJ Watt.

In his 6 NFL seasons, Watt has compiled 77.5 sacks and 3 First-Team All-Pro selections. It should come as no surprise that Herbig is already trying to learn a few moves from Watt’s repertoire in training camp.

According to Christopher Carter with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Herbig told the media Saturday he’s already adding moves that Watt has helped him learn in camp. One of those is Watt’s duck under or “ghost” move that Herbig has seen on film.

Once Herbig got to camp, he asked Watt about the move and the NFL veteran showed Herbig a few things.

While at Wisconsin, Herbig produced 134 total tackles, 36 TFL and 21 sacks, including a career-high 11 sacks in the 2022 season. Watt certainly had a bit more size and explosiveness than Herbig when he entered the league, but Herbig maintains a solid shot to carve out a role with the defense early on.

It also helps that he’s picking up pointers from one of the best in the league.
