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.
Completely agree he may not be a superstar but he will be a respected talented football player his entire career
