J.J. Watt 11th Pick in 2011 NFL Draft

Watt, JJ Wisconsin 6053 290 4.84

Houston Texans

Junior entry. Started every game for the Badgers for 2 years
after transferring from Central Michigan where he played tight
end. Plays the game with great passion and emotion. Quick first
step to penetrate or contain rush. Can set the edge and keep his
outside arm free to make a play. Good bend and flexibility. A
relentless competitor who is the total package of quickness,
agility, and strength. Can stack and shuck a single blocker. Has
the innate strength to split a double team, shed, and make a
tackle for a loss or no gain. Instinctive enough to get in the
throwing lane and bat down passes. He has the vertical jump of
a kangaroo at 37 inches. Plays hard from start to finish. Football
is important to him. Has big and powerful hands to deliver a sixinch
punch. Good use of his active and strong hands. Forces the
quarterback to step up into the pocket when rushing the passer.
