To be honest the fast twitch thing is something I have never really noticed in players. Maybe you are right. I just feel that he fits the mold for a 3-4 lineman and I want to get Watt as much help as I can at a vital position to overall team success. I think most of us are fans of building the trenches up. Another reason I took him is that without projecting a trade down there is no way to assure that he is there at 57. If you like a player I think most agree that you just take him when you know he is going to be there.

That is exactly right. I am trying to catch a stud who was overshadowed by his unfortunate injury situation. I am OK with grabbing a different OT, but I thought that if this guy can come back healthy, he would be smooth enough to excel in a ZBS scheme. And at the 124th overall pick it would be lightning in a bottle.

Ever since his nerve injuries he has had trouble throwing. I think he is recovering, but I prefer him at slot or RB where he can get in space and use his amazing athletic ability to grab some YAC. I mean, the guy runs without his shoes tied! Of course in the NFL you get fined for that...

Wow, I didnt realize that people actually gave a damn about what I thought or said. Its been a super busy year with working and going back to school full time and I just didnt have the same amount of time to put into draft research which I love talking with alot of people on this board. But thanks for the kind words.
