Perhaps I'm just misremembering, but I'd choose Pep between the two.
No, he's very accurate about Watt. I remember looking at Watt's numbers and thinking they were almost something unhuman. He ran in the 4.7-4.8 range and had the best 3-cone and shuttle times of all linemen. He was a freak in all regards, and it shows in the NFL. I hate to think his athleticism was underrated because he's white.
