I find it odd that most big black men look tough while most big white men look like they should be loading hog feed on a trailer. :mcnugget:

is anybody reminding him to pace himself? Texans need him to be healthy for the season.

This guy doesn't know how to pace himself. All out. All the time.

Pros: Displays relentless pursuit from snap to whistle - though he's not terribly fast in short spaces, the clichéd term "non-stop motor" applies here. Great turn around the tackle when rushing the passer, and he's got the ability to turn out of the rush to go after the run - he's not just a one-directional player. Excellent sense of run direction at the line; he doesn't just blindly pursue. Instead, he'll stop and assess and redirect to make the tackle.

Knows how get aggressive with his hands at the line to get around blockers, and he presents a very impressive hand-strike at the point of attack. No matter how hard he's going against a blocker, he always keeps his eye on the ballcarrier. Potentially dominant as a wide five-tech pass rusher - he wouldn't have to engage a tackle straight on.

Cons: Watt runs around with a lot of energy on the field, but the lack of straight line speed for his size (6-foot-6, 292 pounds) shows up when he just misses tackles and winds up diving for ballcarriers that aren't there. Has the power and pop to split double-teams, but can just as easily be re-directed out of the play by power tackles. Gets by with quite a few ankle tackles - he'll have to work on wrapping up at the NFL level. Basic technique flaws in certain instances, but these are things that can be worked on at the NFL level. The basic structure is there.

No. I expect 100%. All the time. Come gametime, 100% will be instinct.

Can we get a total of what draft picks cost against 2011 cap? There were posts about apprx $7m being necessary if I remember correctly.

Watt is huge now, can you imagine what he'll look like after 2 yrs. on an NFL weight & conditioning program.

That's why we called the big boys from Angleton "cornfed" when we
played 'em in high school.

I know a lot of people here in Houston were hoping for other draft picks [than me] -- JJ Watt

Kinda sucks he hears that.

I thought he was the second best player in the whe draft for us. The only player I would of taken before him was Marcell Dareus. I was so happy we drafts him and so will everyone else once this guy settles in. He reminds alot of former oiler jeff alm.

We are pretty dumb as a fanbase in general:

(on if he pinches himself when he looks at some of the guys he's playing next to) "It's nice. I don't have time to pinch myself, though, because I need to be a starter and I can't sit here and be star struck."

As a fanbase in general, I think we've been very pleased with him being our #1. Maybe McLame got in his ear and said we should've taken VY or something.
