RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013

Subscribe now to see our 2013 outlook.

2012

Watt did more than well enough during the regular season of his rookie year, serving as one of the top contributors in one of the league's best defenses while totaling 56 tackles (48 solo) and 5.5 sacks as a 16-game starter. He really came alive in the playoffs, though, posting 14 tackles (11 solo) and 3.5 sacks while returning an interception for a touchdown in two games. That sort of outburst indicates Watt might have the potential to be the exceedingly rare 3-4 end who can push for double-digit sacks.

2011

Taken with the 11th overall pick in April's NFL Draft, Watt likely will start from Day 1 for Houston this season. He had 20.5 tackles for loss last year for Wisconsin and ranked third on the team in tackles with 61 in 13 games. Watt also has ridiculous jumping ability for a player his size, so expect him to knock down passes in the NFL after batting down seven last year.
