Why J.J Watt The Highest Paid Defensive Player Will Be Better in the 2014 Regular Season


J.J. Watt the highest paid defensive player in the league with $100 million six year contract with the Houston Texans. The $51.8 million is guaranteed. Watt has been the one of the best defensive player since being selected 11tj in the 2011 NFL Draft. His numbers definitely justifies the big contract. Thus far Watt has 36.5 sacks in his career.

How much scarier does Watt become if Jadeveon Clowney lives up to the hype coming out of South Carolina. I could actually see him surpassing 22.5 sacks most sacks in a season held by Michael Strahan. When you consider he came pretty darn close in 2012 with 20.5. I know offensive blocking schemes will always beware of both Clowney and Watt, but Clowney could make Watt job of getting to the quarterback a lot easier. Clowney is a rookie blessed with great athleticism but he will have take lumps learning how to excel in the Texans system and exploiting blocking schemes that opposing offenses will throw at him.
