Enjoy!

Watching him bat that pass to himself and run it back 30 yards was pretty cool.

We was about the right size actually.

JJ is the safer pick by a long shot.

Quinn and Fairley have huge bust potential, but if they max out, their talent and positions both outstrip Watt.

I like the Watt pick, but the upside of Quinn or Fairley is huge.
Fairley is not 6'5 314...at the combine he was just under 6'3 and 291 lbs.

Fairley Height/Weight

Watt has the better vertical and 40 times... he also has more forced fumbles, tipped passes, blocked kicks...etc...so I don't see the whole "upside" debate.

Default The story behind drafting JJ Watt

The story behind drafting JJ Watt
Quote:
In 2011 the Texans had a very different game plan heading into the first round of the NFL Draft. The player they wanted was Patrick Peterson, cornerback out of LSU.

General manager and executive president Rick Smith had planned to trade picks with San Francisco to get Peterson. When the Cardinals took Peterson with the fifth-overall pick, the Texans had to readjust their strategy. Did they still want to trade with the 49ers for the seventh-pick and linebacker Aldon Smith?

They didn’t. Instead, Houston kept their original position at number 11 and drafted a rookie named J.J. Watt

Yep. I remember being so disappointed we "lost" Aldon Smith.

If you read the article, it didn't actually elaborate on what actually went into the decision...other than Watt wasn't their first, or possibly even second choice.

Obviously we got the best of all 3 players, but all 3 are now premium players in the NFL that would've helped this team immensely at the time...we were that bad in 2010. The only caveat would've been Smith's off the field issues.....

Unless you're actively refuting someone saying that the Texans never wanted Petersen or Smith, it does nothing to support your argument.

Feel free to elaborate.

It means that fans have a tendency to assume the worst about internal decisions so they can pretend to know better and cry like babies.

Regardless of statements here it is new information and illustrates much more goes on than we commonly find out about.

The specific instance is irrelevant to that general point, but this one does call into question all sorts of assertions made about the Watt pick such as Wade was promised the 1st pick and picked Watt. So was Peterson Wade's top pick or Smith the former DB's? Did Wade want Smith next but RS overruled him for the trade up? People see the arrival of Wade and Watt together and start making up all sorts of storylines with insufficient information.

Exactly... We don't know anything of what's going on behind the scenes, but people around here like to make up stuff to fit their argument. The common theme now is Rick Smith made all of the bad picks, but all of the good picks were obviously made by someone else.

Default Re: Selection 1.11: JJ Watt DE Wisconson

I love 'what ifs' like this.

I wonder how much, if at all, this impacts Smith's thought process in subsequent drafts. I mean, does he go in targeting a player with a possible move up with the thought that he might be missing out on the next JJ Watt by doing so in the back of his mind?

Very fascinating.

C'mon TK, you can better than that. She was just applying real world application of what McNair himself said just a few days ago about how they work the draft. I highly doubt she's throwing stuff against the wall to see what will stick and the team is publishing on the team website.

C'MON MAN!

Would have been nice if she had said, "According to Rick Smith..." or "Mr. McNair said..." or "Marc Vandemeer told me..."

Nah, that last one doesn't fit does it? Deepi is below him on the "inside knowledge" totem poll.
