Yep. Wolfe isn't an athletic freak like Watt. Watt is 300 lbs. and runs a 4.8 forty, and a 6.88 three-cone... plus he's strong (34 bench reps)...that is unheard of.
I don't know that there has EVER been a player like J.J. Watt in the NFL.
Wolfe runs a 5.0 forty...so yeah, he will never be able to generate outside pass rush pressure. He has quick feet (for a DT), good strength, great grappling skills, and unquestioned determination. We need a guy at UT to get 50 tackles, and 7 sacks per year. Wolfe is our man. His sack against the Chargers, double-teamed, in crunch-time, was epic. Exactly the type of plays we need, to get to the SuperBowl.
