NFL Draft Results 2011: Houston Surprises the Nation by Taking J.J. Watt
NFL Draft Results 2011 Are Surprising to See That the Texans Take J.J. Watt
After months of speculating what the Houston Texans would do with their first pick in the draft, we have our answer. The Texans decided to make another surprising pick by taking former Wisconsin defensive end J.J. Watt.
This pick is somewhat flabbergasting to me. Why would the Texans take a defensive end when they have a number of defensive linemen to play in the 3-4 scheme?
They absolutely need outside linebacker and with Robert Quinn still on the board it seemed like a no brainer that he would be the pick.
Even if Quinn weren’t on the board the Texans could have used the pick to upgrade the secondary. But instead the Texans decided to take a shot on Watt.
I will say that Watt is a very good player. His work ethic is second to none and the fact that he has gotten to this point is surprising considering the fact that he came into Wisconsin as a walk-on tight end and became one of the best defensive ends in the Big Ten is saying a lot.
I think he could end up being a solid player, but I do wonder what the brain trust is doing in Houston right now.
