Cleveland Browns Jerseys

A look at JJ Watt

The Browns need a lot of help on both sides of the ball this off-season and if they decided to draft defense first JJ Watt, could be what the Browns need to strengthen a defense that didn’t play that well in 2010. 

 JJ Watt was recruited and went to Central Michigan to play Tight End for the Chippewas. After one year he  transferred to the University of Wisconsin where he switched sides of the ball and played defensive end for the Badgers. He  was born in Wisconsin and received many High School awards. 

High School Awards Include: First-team all-state, all-county, all-area and all-conference as both a tight end and defensive end … named conference player and conference defensive player of the year as well as team MVP as a senior … first-team all-state selection in track and field and was the state champion in the shot put as a senior … first-team all-conference and all-area defensive end as a junior … four-year letterwinner in football and also lettered in basketball, baseball and track and field … career totals of 38 catches for 549 yards and 11 touchdowns at tight end … made 44.5 tackles for loss, including 18 QB sacks … National Honor Society member and high honor roll … head coach was Clay Iverson.

He recorded 21 Tackles for Loss  his Senior season for the Badgers which ranked second in the Big Ten.  He led the team in Sacks and was third on the team for Tackles. In a few Mock Drafts that I had seen he was projected to get drafted by the Browns.

    As a no. 6 pick? After what Holmy just said about reaching? Nah. Don’t think so — but not as a rap on Watt.
