J.J. Watt: 5 Reasons why he’s the greatest Texans first-round pick
2. J.J. Watt’s importance is more than just on the field
J.J. Watt became a more important player to the franchise on the field, and of course, off the field as well.
Watt’s presence on the team made the Houston Texans franchise more noticeable, and at one time a very competitive team, with Watt being a part of each division championship team.
His importance to the Texans on the field made him that much more important to the city of Houston off the field with the J.J. Watt Foundation, and all the support Watt obtained during Hurricane Harvey was more important that any sack he made or any football achievement earned.
J.J. Watt has done many great things for Houston. Not only was he a great player for the Texans on the field for 128 regular-season games, but for his 10 seasons with the Texans, all the great things he achieved, and helped others achieve, in his time with the Texans makes him the greatest — and most important — first-round pick in franchise history. Without Watt, there are many folks in Houston who wouldn’t have the help and support they received, and that is the most important part of Watt’s career and legacy in Houston.
