Oh, well. Too bad this is worst linebacker & safety class in years...just our luck.
Watt is not the sexy pick - but a lot of sexy picks end up as busts. Reggie Bush? Vince Young? Heck you could`ve even call Okoye a sexy pick, since he had major upside.
But with those guys it`s hit or miss. Fairley? He could be Haynesworth 2.0 (the Redskins version) - Quinn? He could miss a lot of time, or not translate to Pro level.
Watt is the kind of player, that makes his team better. Sure, his stats in college were pretty good - and sure, they probably won`t be that good for the texans. But he will chase the QB, free up space for LBs and perhaps some of his attitude will help guys like MW or Okoye (if he stays).
Itīs not the pick to sell tickets, but the pick to make this football team better.
