Deshaun Watson shined at Clemson, and he was always at his brightest in his team’s biggest moments. Now he’ll look to carry that success to the Texans after being selected by Houston with the No. 12 overall pick. They traded with the Browns to move up and take him, and they needed a quarterback.
The Browns get Houston’s 25th overall pick this year and their first-round pick in 2018. Cleveland got Houston’s second-round pick in 2018 as part of the Osweiler trade.
There’s no perfect prospect in this year’s quarterback class, but Watson has the best resume. Watson thought he should be the first quarterback off the board, before Mitchell Trubisky, because of it. He’s the third QB taken after the Bears took Trubisky and Chiefs took Patrick Mahomes. This will irritate Clemson.
“You’re gonna have to live with the consequences that come Cheap Oakland Raiders Jerseys Cheap Official Jerseys with it,” Watson said Tuesday on NFL Network’s Good Morning Football, of teams passing on him.
It helps that Milwaukee has the best player on the floor: Giannis Antetokounmpo finished with 19 points, eight rebounds, four assists, two steals, two blocks, and 7-of-10 shooting, while notching a team-best plus-29.
How you view Miami’s draft is dependent on whether or not you thought they should take an offensive lineman in the first round instead of pass rusher Charles Harris. After him, the Dolphins got a group of solid, albeit maybe unspectacular players.
