While I’m normally an advocate of teams following one mistake at a key position by taking another risk at the same one, this draft pick makes sense.
Watson moves better than Brock Osweiler ever did, and if plays don’t develop on time then he can get some things done with his legs to free things up a bit.
Lamar Miller will benefit from teams having to keep an eye on the quarterback on top of the running back, and of course, a talented pool of receivers should make for some fantastic plays.
Watson is the most pro-ready in this year’s class in my opinion, and has shown he’s just a flat-out winner. Defeating a team like Alabama who is stocked with future NFL defenders should only boost his stock.
Like I wrote about with the Lions before, Houston’s own defense will help keep opposing scores lower so their rookie quarterback isn’t forced to put the team on his shoulders too often in 2017.
This team can’t move forward with Tom Savage as their quarterback, and unless they plan on signing Colin Kaepernick, this is the obvious choice.
Watson brings a winning attitude, winning ability, and potential that is through the roof.
Os-who? Deshaun is king of Houston by the end of 2017.
