if the redskins pick some scrub here then the texans wil have some chocies to make

If the Skins don't take Gabbert, I bet the Vikings will want our pick.

Got this from Scout.com (http://nwe.scout.com/2/1032042.html)

Watt is an absolute animal that plays with a motor that just won't quit and truly has a knack for making plays when his team needs it. He blocks field goals, extra points, makes tackles for loss, sacks the quarterback, he really does it all.
We currently have Watt going to the Patriots with the 32nd pick of the 1st round, of our 2011 NFL Mock Draft, which might be a bit of a reach for the underclassmen from Madison.

Tailgate
04-28-2011, 09:17 PM
Yeah. Cant be mad at this pick at all. Bigger needs at DT, and OLB considering those available. But this guy is a GLUE guy, and every team needs those guys.

Im guessing Quinns medical didnt check out as we wanted.

JJ Watt was a beast in the bowl game, and I'm sure he'll be fine for us; but Fairly is just going to be sick in the league. Not sure if he fits as a 3-4 though, but would've made up for this crappy year if we had taken him or Aku.

Has Wade stated publically he wanted Smith or is that just more draft scuttlebutt?

I took it down in week 4, when another poster pointed out that it was unfair to have it due to Tate's injury.

OMG, you mean, like, Gerhart, like, did not tear up the league his rookie season while backing up AP? What a bust. He should just quit and start flipping burgers somewhere.

At least Watt's highlights look good. I am going to give the benefit of the doubt that they did try to trade down but with Gabbert gone no leverage. I think we drafted what he is not POTENTIAL. i am OK with pick if he has been durable. maybe he can teach Super some moves. At least they didn'tpick PED user did they??

DE
OLB
CB

JJ Watt Breakdown

#Terrific size and long arms
# Relentless pass rusher
# Quick off line
# Good athlete - former tight end
# Strong run defender
# Incredible work ethic, NEVER takes plays off and has a non-stop motor.
# Plays at a torrid pace each down, working for every sack or tackle for loss he gets.
# Scheme and position versatility
# High character leader with outstanding work ethic
# Plenty of upside
# Highly productive.

Weaknesses:
# Still developing
# Inexperience hurts his instincts
# Has to develop pass-rushing moves
# Tackling skills need improvement
# Due to height needs to be cognizant of playing high

Breath gentlemen. This is the kind of player Houston needed on their defense, and Phillips will coach his strengths to make him a real beast.

Just me. Move Quinn to S, Watt @ NT Prince @ CB... suddenly our defense is looking better...

Phililps said, he'll be DE
One of strongest and fastest DL's in draft
He'll move Mario and Antonio around
Mario expected to be force
JJ is a very productive player and a very good one
Reminds Philips of Phil Hansen of Buffalo
Can rush passer and defend against run

He had 7 sacks and could have had more because he hit TE before he rushed
Prince A was considered but Rick Smith did a great job of contingincies
He liked JJ Watt more than anyone else on board
He's physical force 4.8 forty and 290 lbs.

I'm a huge college football fan. Let me tell you guys what I saw last season. All of these first rounders have highlight vids that can make them look good. The difference is that Watt doesn't need a highlight tape. He was just everywhere during Wisconsin games. He was one of those, "take over a game" types.

Watch in ESPN U & ESPN Classic for a replay of Wisconsin vs Ohio State this year. It was incredible. Every single down, the guy was just dominating the game.
