Default Re: Selection 1.11: JJ Watt DE Wisconson

I can't remember for certain but I think he was Parcell's top DE if you watched his draft special on ESPN. Can anyone confirm that?

I would have loved Quinn but I had a feeling he was off the board for us, Watt could wind up being a really nice player. Will be interesting to see how they mix the bodies to get him on the field.

I definitely don't think this is a reach. I'm sure someone would have taken him early.

I just don't think he is a good fit for the Texans. When we were we took Mario in 2006, we talked about how it didn't make sense to take a DE so early in the first round for a 3-4 defense.

I believe he blocks a lot of kicks too...

If you ever watched Wisconsin play you will know and like Watt.

Marcus Spears has been Dallas' best DE for the last 6 years. He has 8 sacks total.

We weren't a 3-4 D when the Mario pick was made. They had already announced conversion to 4-3.

Here's a thread from draftcountdown dedicated solely to J.J Watt; followed his entire 2010 season up until the draft.. love what I'm reading from it.

I've seen him swat double teams like flies. I wouldn't be surprised if Wade has found his strong, quick NT..............and he's SMALL too!!

I guess this pick is growing on me. At first it was meh but now it looks to be a good solid pick.

I mean it never hurts to have guys with a non-stop motor. We always talk about we need emotion and toughness on our defense, well this guy looks the part. The more Cushing/Ryans type of players we get on this team the better.

I don't give a two shits if he never gets a single sack so long as he collapses the pocket and gets lots of pressure on the QB on a consistant basis.

This is exactly what I was thinking but I didn't want to start up some Mario debate. I also realize he was also hurt last year which may explain his disappearances at times.

But still other players on the Dline could learn a thing or two from guys like Cushing and apparently Watt *coughamobicough*
