So ignoring for a minute that you all disagree with me, does Watt give us any of that?
Also, I love that he was a TE. I mean, before long we can dominate the league's All-Former TE team.
While I don't disagree that an inside rush is critical, it begs the question of who at #11 would fill that need. Nose Tackle...ILB...??? The only guy taken at those positions in the entire 1st round was Phil Taylor at 21 to the Browns.
Also Watt will help the inside rush when on passing downs when they slide into a 4-3 front.
