WATCH: J.J. Watt box jumps nearly 5 feet high

By Josh Katzowitz | NFL Writer

In case you wondered whether the reigning defensive player of the year was somewhat athletic, here's your proof.

As posted on YouTube, Texans defensive end J.J. Watt is seen here box-jumping 59.5 inches. If you're not well versed in measurements, that's one-half inch short of five feet.

That is a man-sized (or a full Danny Devito-size) leap. Either way, enjoy this 11-second clip of big-man athleticism.

Watch out, indeed.
