How Many Houston Texans Made The PFF Top 101 Of 2012?

J.J. Watt reacts to the PFF Top 101 rankings. Or the score of the first Texans-Titans game of 2012. - Brett Davis-US PRESSWIRE

We're in the heart of the NFL offseason, which can only mean one thing: Lists. Lots and lots of lists. Pro Football Focus recently unveiled their Top 101 Players of 2012. How many Texans made the cut?

If you're in the midst of the NFL offseason, you know that means you're also in the midst of list after list. Top plays, top drafts, top concession vendors...it's all out there.

Pro Football Focus contributed to the meme by publishing their Top 101 Players of the 2012 NFL Season. How many Houston Texans made the list, and where did they rank?

Four Texans were ranked in the top 101. I won't divulge who three of them were and/or where those three ranked. But I have no choice but to share who the player ranked first overall was, as it will surely give PFF's rankings credibility in the eyes of Texans fans.

1. J.J. Watt, DE, Houston Texans (54th)

Apparently Watt was playing hurt, which just makes his remarkable 2012 all the more astonishing. Breaking all sorts of records at his position, Watt is the owner of the highest PFF grade we’ve ever given out and was that rarest of defender who, no matter what you did, you simply had to account for. A force of nature in the run game and a quarterback’s nightmare while rushing the passer, we may never see a season as staggeringly excellent as what Watt produced.

Best Performance: Week 1 versus Miami, +9.5

Key Stat: The 15 batted passes we credited him with are the most of any player during the PFF era.

Take a gander at the rest of PFF's rankings and then discuss your thoughts in the Comments below.
