J.J. Watt

J.J. Watt
NFL Draft Scouting Report

Defensive End

Wisconsin


College Position: Defensive End
School: Wisconsin
Grade: Junior
Height: 6-6
Weight: 292
Birthdate: 03-22-1989
Draft Projection: Mid First
Overall Rank: 12
NFL Draft Position (Rank): Defensive End (5)

Draft Result

Drafted in the 2011 Draft by the Houston Texans in the 1st round with the #11 pick.
With the Texans moving to a 3-4, they have a huge hole up front at the 5-technique. Adding Watt gives them a high-motor player who can hold up the point of attack. Watt should do well opposite Mario Williams, who will line up on the other side of the line from him. Wade Phillips gets a great addition, and he likes linemen that get pressure on the quarterback.
