I love this pick. Watt is a freakshow athlete with a relentless motor. Quite frankly we need more guys like him. His 10yd splits were very similar to Quin and Kerrigan and better then Fairley and Smith. He posted terrific jump number and a very fast short shuttle time. He's also relatively new to the DE position. I expect big things from Watt and our defense just got alot better!

We got a difference maker that has everything you just listed. Put on game tapes of Watt and you'll come away impressed.

Lots of valid points about the pick, brought up by fans.


Do you approve of the pick of J.J. Watt?

Did you watch JJ Watt play this year?

He has insane acceleration but lacks top speed, he is involved in nearly every single tackle in the backfield.

Sounds like you got exactly what you wanted, but you don't realize it.

Fairley isn't a fit, even in hybrid 3-4, but Quinn was. Fairley is a great fit in Detroit playing alongside Suh. Two DTs with mean streaks. Suh will push Fairley similar to how the Texans hope Watt's energy will push Mario.

The Rams really lucked out with Quinn dropping to them.

Difference maker- 21 TFL, 7 sacks, 1 INT, 17 BU/PD, 2 FR, 3FF, 3 Blocked Kicks- check

Disruptive- See above stats- check

Quick first step- 1.64 ten yard split, 37" vertical- check

Blows up plays- See above stats- check

Watt's stats and workout numbers are off the charts. Add in his attitude, and you have a pro bowl player for years.

Good pick all around, though I think Fairley and Quinn will end up being better.

The Texans still have no pass rushers though, but they do have a shot at a guy like Bowers in the 2nd.

Drafting a guy to be a backup doesn't make much since with no OLBs, NT, or safeties, but he was BPA.

Default Re: Selection 1.11: JJ Watt DE Wisconson

After watching some more film on Watt im starting to like the pick more and more. No one knows how effective MW or AS will be in the 3-4 and Watt has an amazing motor. My favorite thing about him is if he cant get to the QB he puts his hands up and trys to bat down the ball. I still like Quinn over him but i have no problem with Watt who will be a very good player in this league

My comments aren't negative in a personal way..I like the guy alot...but I saw him play TCU and saw alot of his stuff and all before that game. He has alot of good qualities but it isn't a slight to question where he will fit in this sceme and if there were better options. I think everyone does this at this point. I'm reading about Tyron Smith being the next Alex Barron on the Cowboy board.

Before the draft I told my Steeler friend that we love TEs, Colorado State, Wisconsin, and Alabama. Hit on 2 of the 3.

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.

I have heard that but i think Quinn is the type of talent that can make the transition to the 3-4 similar build to Ware (6-5 270 compared to 6-4 262) but i do really like the Watt pick. FO might be scared of taking Quinn who sat out a entire year and doesnt know how he could pan out possibly be an Okoye type player.
