Gronk and Graham are both freaks. I doubt its Watt because if JPP is there, why would Watt be ahead of him?


Becauase Watt is more athletic. Doing backflips does not equal freak athlete.

I wasnt talking about that, What makes Watt more athletic? I think people are looking too much into production when making their choices.

37 inch vert, 10 foot broad, and 4.21 shuttle at 290 is freakish. Only DE with a more impressive combine performance I can think of is Mario Williams.

Here's their combine results. It's not just on field production- in the 8 categories listed, JPP only beat Watt in 2 of them, despite Watt being 20 pounds bigger. Watt posted better explosion, strength, and agility numbers.

And that's taking nothing away from JPP, who is a great athlete himself.

I honestly wonder if Watt isn't considered an elite athlete because he's white.

I'm guessing #1 is the guy who qualified for the Olympics in High School, and is going to be named ROTY in a week.

Id take Peterson and Harvin over Reggie Bush as pure athletes go.

I'm already bummed enough about his knee getting shredded, getting #1 in a list like this would just be insult to injury.

Not to be a homer, but Julius Peppers should make it on this list, too.

I can understand he's getting older though so people tend to overlook him, however who's going to make it between Patrick Peterson, Adrian Peterson or J.J. Watt?
