Texans Trade Up To 12th Overall Pick, Draft Clemson QB DeShaun Watson

DeShaun Watson is the most accomplished QB in the 2017 NFL draft, and he was rewarded with a 12th overall selection from the Houston texans, who traded up to the spot to take him.

Watson’s college coach Dabo Swinney had high praise for his QB who lead the Tigers to a National Championship just a few months ago, saying if NFL GMs pass on DeShaun, they’re passing on Michael Jordan.

Watson joins a Super Bowl caliber team in desperate need of a quarterback with plans of signing Tony Romo evaporating when the Cowboys QB retired. Houston currently has Tom Savage presumably listed as their starter.
