Matt Jones. high motor. lol.
He's right about us on the defensive line. But why JJ. Watt instead of Marcel Dareus?
Miller is definitely a better 3-4 OLB prospect than Robert Quinn.
On paper Watt is a much better pass rusher.
This guy might be the worst draftnik on the planet
J.J Watt get's eaten up on running plays cause he doesn't hold his gaps well enough.
Dareus does not suffer to Watt in the pass rush.
I would be thrilled if it panned out like this. JJ Watt is a top 10 prospect IMO, and he would provide a pass rush from the defensive end spot. If Spencer can play like he did at the end of the season before and we get Watt, we would have the potential for a terrifying defense.
Watt did what in the Rosebowl? Nadda!
Look, good college player, good guy but doesn't show up in the big game.
Gets burned on his gap too much on running plays.
Will be a solid pro but not a stud. A Greg Ellis type of pick. We can get an X factor level of player.
Marcel Dareus in his last 2 bowls just took games over on that side of the ball.
If I have to chose between the 2 at # 9, Dareus, who is going to be a stud, no questions asked.
Plus he can play top notch on all spots on the front 3 of a 3-4.
Gives us so much more flexibility and is more pro ready than Watt.
Dareus has had some outstanding bowl games , but week to week , in SEC games , he has disappeared . His own coaches have said that he is not a 3-down player and that he is more effective as only a 2-down player . The Cowboys might as well keep Spears. I watched 6 or 7 of Dareus`s games this year , just to get a look at him . He seemed to take too many plays off and he becomes a non-factor.
I think Dareus could play 3-4 NT no problem.
He's 22-23 years old and 310.
He can get to 320-330 no problem.
He has a very thick lower body.
Built like a dumptruck.
If we wanted to do that at 9 vs riskier Taylor in 2 I'd have no problem with it.
If a white player didnt have a high motor hed get stomped
I think he's only on ESPN so he can disagree and argue with Mel Kiper.
That's the coke.
What about when Wisconsin played #1 Ranked Ohio State? 2 sacks against a tough QB to bring down. I would say thats a pretty big game.
I watched Watt ALOT this year and he's a solid college player: that's IT. He didn't stand out, he didn't dominate and his measurables don't in any way, shape or FORM grade out to a top 10 1st round pick. That's the bottom line. Darius is a friggin' BEAST physically who has a question of playing hard, but that's ALL. The fact this is even a discussion shows what a clown McDonkey really is!
Rewatch the Ohio St game.
He's not going to dominate every single game he plays in. I thought he played well in his bowl game, but I guess not everyone saw it the same way I did.
Watt and Tyron Smith are the two players I see shooting up draft boards, and I would be fine with either one of them at 9. I've been touting both of them for awhile.
