Not sure I understand your first part. Mario being a DE in a 2 pt stance... I think that's what you got even if you call it an OLB. lol Shoot - move Mario to Nose Tackle for some playes and he's a DE playing Nose. That's just how I feel.

I can't wait for the season to start and I'm really looking forward to watching Wade turn this D around. Much of that having to do with him moving Mario and Watt to different positions and putting them in the best positions to succeed.

Let's not get it twisted, buddy. Mario will definitely see limited snaps at OLB, but our 295 lb 6'7 best DLineman is not going to be starting games standing up. I know Wade sort of worded it awkwardly, but common sense has to kick in at some point, no?

They potentially solved to their OLB problem with this pick.

Mario DeMeco Cushing Barwin

Watt Mitchell/Cody Smith


now they need to address the secondary in the later rounds or FA and this could be a nice start to a very good defense...
Phillips has said several times that Mario will keep his hand on the ground. He also said Mario took a false step every time he was asked to rush from a 2 point stance.

I don't know enough about this guy to say whether or not I like this guy. I'll like him if he helps us win. Simple as that.

Default Re: JJ Watt- Do you like the pick, or not?

For now this pick is meh for me. I'll admit that I didn't watch him much in college so I don't want to to be to critical of him at this point. From the footage I saw though, he looked slow to me and lacked a burst from the outside. Might have just been the footage I've seen. He looks like he'll be a good player to me with a high motor which I like, but I don't think he'll ever be a great player and a true difference maker type of DE. Watt would have probably been picked around the 20's range as well, so we got him a little high. Trading down would have been a little better, but trading down isn't always an option for every team so you can't knock every team for not trading down if the option isn't there in the first place. I would have liked a few other guys that were still on the board as well. If our 2nd round picks end up being really good that fill other holes it might not be as bad, but this pick doesn't excite me as of now.

I meant Mario at the 5 tech, outside shoulder of Tackle, but in a 2pt stance, standing up which basically is an rushing OLB so....

They used this for him, I think in his 12 sack year. They had 3 LBs but the DEs were standing up rushing...

I gotcha. Yea I think from a true x's and o's standpoint there will be many instances where he will be technically an "OLB". But his responsibilities, I don't think he's going to be your typical OLB that most think of when thinking 3-4 OLB. I hope we see another 12 sack year out of him this season!

Remember what Charles Hayley used to do to get 'pumped up' before games? It was similar to this but it wasn't beer spraying around. YUCK!!!!

Anybody watch Parcells draft special? They showed glimpses of the board. JJ Watt was at the top of his group. I assume that is was his actual draft board. I sure hope it was.

Didn't he have Brooks Reed as a 3rd or 4th round talent too?
