Texans select J.J. Watt

04.28.11 at 9:10 pm ET

The Texans beefed up their definsive line in the first round, taking Wisconsin defensive end J.J. Watt 11th overall Thursday.

Watt is a great five-technique prospect, and this just goes to show you how much emphasis is placed on a good defensive line. The Texans have a major need at corner, so passing on Prince Amukamara must have been tough to do.
