They're talking about Mario @ OLB on 610.

I'm sure he has a good work ethic and will be a decent player but why draft a DE when you have so many other needs to fill? If you are going to draft a DE why not trade down, get a few draft picks, and snag Cameron Jordan.

This pick does not thrill me one bit, seems to be a reach.

Default Re: Selection 1.11: JJ Watt DE Wisconson

Twas a beast in the bowl game against TCU.. don't know much about him after that. Unimpressive in the sack numbers, but could be a solid starter for us for a long time.

I think I heard an analyst comparing him to Aaron Smith.. which would not be a bad to have at all.

Definitely not a sexy pick, but could really be detrimental to our D down the road.

Solid pick by the Texans. No need to trade back if he is the player you feel good about. Solid player with great motor. Relentless. Great character. A guy you dont have to worry about reading in your morning newspaper that he killed a stripper while high on coke.

Wow. Wiki was already updated that he was drafted by the Texans #11.

Heres the bottom line; the only way to compete in the NFL is to get after the QB (specifically Peyton). I appreciate the committment to it and to continue to do what it takes to put Manning on the ground. Thats the only way we will be able to compete.

I can agree an OLB would be great. I will disagree with you until the cows come home if you said we should have taken a CB. Youth in this spot will not work, case in point KJ.

What if no one wants to trade up? Watt best player available and opens possibility of trade for Mario or Smith when trades allowed.

Cant believe anyone would not like this guy. He will bat down a ton of passes, never quit on a play, create all kinds problems on 3rd down in the middle. He is a incredible athlete. At 6'5" and 290 lb's he has the second fastest 10 yard split for defensive linemen and that included DE's.

I feel you. I didn't want a CB one bit as there are so many in FA. Maybe this is a sign that Bob plans to spend big money this off season. OLB really concerns me though, mostly because Connor Barwin (all the hope aside) is still an unknown and who is going to play on the other side?
