2. Vince “Big Daddy” Wilfork, NT
The Texans knew that had it made when JJ Watt took off, but they did not know that they would get to put a great space eater like Wilfork next to him. Wilfork has been a Pro Bowl standard at an underappreciated position. Which is why no one could really figure out why the Patriots would want to lose him. Wilfork will make Watt’s job easier, as if Watt needed his job to be easier. Note how small Wilfork makes Watt look.
