J.J. Watt Box Jump: Texans Star Shows Off Incredible Standing Leap (VIDEO)

No wonder why it's so difficult for NFL quarterbacks to throw a pass over the hands of Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt.

A video was uploaded to YouTube on Wednesday of the 6' 5", 289-pound Texans star performing a standing box jump at a set height of 59.5 inches, according to the video's title. That makes Watt's attempt higher than Justin Veltung's of the Seattle Seahawks -- which went viral last May -- by almost four whole inches.

Watt also weighs approximately 100 pounds heavier than Veltung.

Pretty impressive, J.J.
