    The little boy opened the front door and stared, both wide-eyed and dumbfounded, at the silent giant standing before him. The child was so stunned by the man's presence that he whirled toward his mother behind him and asked a simple question.

    "Why is J.J. Watt here?" the boy inquired, knowing full well that the former standout at Pewaukee (Wis.) High School was supposed to be playing college football somewhere. When Watt said he had a pizza to deliver, the boy remained mystified. He quickly turned back to his mother and repeated his question.



    For Watt, the boy's confusion was understandable. Watt had been a starting tight end at Central Michigan during his freshman season, and people in his hometown hardly expected that early success to lead to his quitting the team. But Watt also couldn't explain to a child that his dream of playing in the NFL required that unexpected stint working at Pizza Hut. It was hard enough for Watt to make adults understand his life strategy during the winter of 2008.

    I want this guy. Trade down with St. Louis and get it done.

    Heck, take him at 9. I think he's a top 7 talent in this draft.

    I'd love to have him but we need an OT and CB more.
