If Deshaun Watson slips to the late first round, he may have a suitor in one National Football League playoff contender: the Houston Texans.
Houston Texans first round draft pick Deshaun Watson poses with a jersey during a press conference at NRG Stadium. "Tom Savage, in this offense, knows how to operate this offense". The Texans insist that they're OK with that.
Players like Davis Webb and Joshua Dobbs are also options in the next few days, if the Browns decide to hold off on a quarterback tonight. After he regained his composure, he finished the letter: "In the words of Drake, we made it. Love, Mom".
Watson seems prepared to do whatever the Texans ask of him. But also, I have a lot to learn, so I'm anxious to get here and get to work and learn from Brandon Weeden and Tom Savage, two guys that I'm a huge fan of, who I watched when they were in college.
With Vince Wilfork heading to retirement and Reader set to move into the starting nose tackle role, Watkins has a chance to come in and help right away in the defensive line rotation.
When Miami tight end David Njoku was drafted in the first round by the Cleveland Browns, he became the fifth Hurricane tight end selected in the first round since 2000 and the ninth drafted overall. "He has double digits in hurries and sacks and tackles for losses, he plays big in big games and we like that about him".
Deann and other family members were fixtures at Watson's games at Clemson, cheering on the 6-foot-3 quarterback throughout his career with the Tigers, which included leading Clemson to a national title this past season. Honestly, I'd have no issue with Houston moving up for any of these safeties or offensive tackles to get a "sure thing" day-one contributor. "When the chips were down he was able to lead his team to victory. I still have cousins that play at Clemson", Hopkins said. It marked the fifth consecutive year Clemson has had at least one player taken in the first round of the draft.
