Lawrence Taylor feels J.J. Watt is a top tier player

Lawrence Taylor was at an autograph show yesterday, and Houston Chronicle writer John McClain talked to L.T. the former Giants pass rusher about Texans pass rusher J.J. Watt.  Taylor had high praise for Watt, and said he envisions him as a top 4 player on defense to ever play the game.

“In front of me I see guys like Reggie White [and] Deacon Jones,” Taylor said Saturday at a Houston-area appearance, via John McClain of the Houston Chronicle. “Do I put J.J. in front of me? No, but the guy is a phenomenal player. He can go down as one of the best players to ever play his position. . . . Every time I watch film on him or I see a game he’s playing in, the first thing that comes to my mind is this guy can go all day.”

This is a huge statement, and a monstrous compliment.
