J.J. Watt was the most double-teamed edge rusher in the NFL last season

JJ Watt Bill O'Brien argument
Many people will say J.J. Watt is overrated, but when you break down the film he is not easy to block. As a matter of fact he required the most double teams of any player last year.

People dog J.J. Watt saying he does not have a lot left in the tank, and many are saying he is not worth the money he demands, but ESPN says otherwise.

Last season even though J.J. Watt only racked up 5 sacks and forced 2 fumbles through 16 games, there was no other edge rusher double-teamed more than him.

According to ESPN Stats & Information, Watt was double-teamed 30.1% of the time.

That is pretty impressive considering he was tied for seventh-most tackles for loss last season.

He finished with 14 tackles for loss, seven pass break ups. Watt may not put up huge numbers but he would free up linebackers. This could be huge for a team with speedy linebackers like the Bucs or Bills.
