"I think he's one of these guys that only comes around once every 20 to 30 years."
Taylor has seen thousands of players come and go, but didn't shy away from ranking Watt, at 26, among the top-four defensive players ever -- a list that also includes the former Giant.
"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."
With three DPOY trophies in the past four seasons, Watt has plenty of time to chase after accolades and frontiers no other defensive player has seen. But L.T. wondered out loud if anybody on that side of the ball would ever again win MVP. Nobody's done it since Taylor nabbed the honor in 1986.
"That's one I have on him," L.T. said, adding another wrinkle: "The year I won MVP, we won the Super Bowl. They wanted to call me the greatest defensive player of all time. He can put up numbers, and he can be one of the greatest players that ever played (but), you've got to be able to take your team to a title."
