Texans star JJ Watt has said it over and again. Individual honors aren't the reason he plays. But in the middle of his European vacation, maybe this will resonate with #99.

Watt's peers in the NFL have voted him the third most feared player in the league. Watt's a two-time All-Pro and the Defensive Player of the Year in 2012.

Detroit's Ndamuking Suh and Calvin Johnson finished 1 and 2 in the ESPN poll. Then came Watt, followed by Patrick Willis, Peyton Manning, James Harrison and Adrian Peterson.

The list came from anonymous surveys of 320 players.
