Texans defensive end J.J. Watt plans to personally pay for the funerals of the Santa Fe High School shooting victims, according to a report by Houston’s Fox affiliate.
Santa Fe High School officials have been notified that @JJWatt is personally going to pay for the funerals of all the victims of the Santa Fe High School shooting tragedy.
Ed Oliver, defensive tackle, Houston: Sometimes a prospect has a body of work so strong that declaring for the draft early as a junior becomes a forgone conclusion. Oliver announced his intentions for the 2019 NFL Draft before even taking a snap in his junior season. Oliver has exceeded the expectations of being a five-star recruit for the Cougars, and his long list of accolades on the field back it up. At 6-3, 290 pounds, Oliver already has NFL measurables and has punished opposing offenses with 139 total tackles, including 10.5 sacks.
Nick Bosa, defensive end, Ohio State: Bosa has NFL pedigree, as his older brother Joey was the third overall pick in the 2016 draft by the Chargers. Their father, John Bosa, was the 16th overall pick by the Dolphins in 1987. The younger Bosa, according to SN’s Bill Bender, has a chance to go higher than both due to his edge rushing ability.
Others to watch: While Oliver and Bosa are the headliners, next year’s class is extremely deep in defensive line prospects. As for quarterbacks, Bender has provided a list of signal-callers to watch.
Graham made a career-high 9.5 sacks last season.
Consider this, too, from the News’ story, which quoted veteran defense attorney and former federal prosecutor Keith Corbett about the impact of charges like this:
“(On) a personal level, it’s a brand that stays with you forever. There’s no way to get around it. (They) never had a chance to defend against it, and there was no finding of guilt but from a public-perception standpoint; this is a thing that may follow them for the rest of their lives.”
For Patricia, though, it did not. He got around it for 22 years. Explain that.
