J.J. Watt has really made a statement in the NFL that led to him being ranked at fifth overall.
Watt's ranking at five made him the highest newly ranked player on the list of the top 100.
He was also the highest ranked defensive player on the list for 2013.
That fact should come as no surprise after he was named the AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year and received 49 of the possible 50 total votes.
Watt is barely entering his third season in the NFL but will have a lot of pressure on him from the franchise and the fans to be successful.
He will also have the pressure on him from opponents, because he will be the focal point of their game plan each and every week.
