We are not taking JJ Watt
I love it.
lol. Maybe if Parcells was here.
Parcells would take a 3-4 DE that early.
The thinking is we don't have one that is an elite pass rusher as well as run stuffer. Olshansky is probably gone so we need a pass rushing 3-4 DE.
Jordan or Watt.
I'd still like Peterson or Prince if Prince's Combine performance dispells the speed question.
I would be fine with getting Watt if they did so in a trade down with The Patriots or Chargers. They dude plays hard and with attitude.
If they stay put I think they would go with Cam Jordan over Watt.
That mock has AJ Green still on the board when we are drafting?
He's probably the #1 player i the draft. I wouldn't mind drafting AJ Green, but at the very least, if Green is there it is the perfect trade down scenario. I would be EXTREMELY disappointed if we left Green on the board and drafted. I know the Redskins would have a heart attack if they could get Green at #10.
Jerry Jones = Matt Millen
I'm not down with JJ Watt at 9
So we're going to have four all-world receivers and not enough time to get the ball to them?
mosley was saying we are very interested in him.
Im with most of you guy's i'd take him but only in a trade down . Not to belittle the position and the need but i would rather get a impact player at 9(prince, miller, quinn) or a guy with upside (t.smith) . maybe if this draft wasnt loaded with 3-4 ends i would feel differently but this draft just seems to have tons of them.
We have 3 all-world receivers?
Maybe you missed the larger point of my entire post in which I clearly state that we should use that opportunity to trade down. Green is likely one of the few players a team would trade up for. I would be pissed off if we left Green on the board and drafted a DE. We should trade down.
Yeah, if Green happens to be there at 9, we would have tons of trade down offers.
If the draft fell like this mock, I would want to trade up a few spots and grab Fairley. He's a monster and Ryan would put him to good use.
The white Richard Seymour!
Much too high for Watt. Solid guy, great motor, but the league is full of guys like that who are solid players but you need better than solid when you are drafting this high.
Green going to the Skins would make me retch. Trade down or take Prince in that scenario.
FYI, the common and new theme seems to be that Watt is a top 10 pick. This has to be the 4th or 5th draft I have seen with Watt moving up into the top 10 including Kiper who had him at 6.
What do you think? Have you had time to scout him yet?
I remember watching him during the season and he would always stand out, so I went to NFLDraftCountdown and Scott had him as a 2nd rounder. I thought he looked like a 1st rounder easily, but was hoping he would be there for our 2nd. Looks like we won't be lucky enough for him to slide.
Anyway I saw a guy with good size and strength, but he also seemed to have pretty good athleticism for a guy his size. Not like Julius Peppers or anything, but he definitely can run plays down. He has a great motor, and seems to me to be an underrated pass rusher.
I don't know about Watt at #9. He's going to be a solid guy but is he going to be special? He reminds me of Rams's Adam Carriker who was a top 5 pick and traded to the Skins...
Jordan looks like a much better pass rusher and you can NEVER have enough pass rushers. Worse comes to worse Jordan would be a good rushers during 3rd down in his first year and develop into better overall player after NFL strengthening program.

I think people vastly underrate Watt.
