Analysis

DEPTH CHART FEATURE - What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said before JJ WATT made the Houston Texans' depth chart: Wisconsin, 6053, 290, 4.84. 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 six-inch punch. Good use of his active and strong hands. Forces the quarterback to step up into the pocket when rushing the passer. Can run a tackle and push the pocket back to the throwing point. Plays the game on his feet. Can turn first step quickness to power. Can play a 5-technique (outside shade OT), 3-4 end, or play any position across a 4-man front. Career stats: 106 tackles, 36 1/2 TFL, 11 sacks, 13 PBU, 3 FF, 4 FR. Edge speed:left 1.98, right 1.91. OSR:1/44 for defensive linemen, 1/26 for defensive ends. First round. (A-34, H-11 1/8, BP-34, 10-1.65).
