Texans QB Watson: I can do things a lot of people can't

The former quarterback for Clemson University got emotional after reading a letter handed to him following his first-round draft Thursday night by the Houston Texans.

Despite sacrificing almost all of their high-end draft capital in 2018 to clear out the quarterback room and make the trade up to get Watson, the Texans are insisting that Tom Savage is still Houston's starting quarterback. When he finally won the job a year ago, he got injured just before the playoffs, giving up his job to former starter Brock Osweiler. To be a big-time star at Clemson, to play the last two National Championships and to win it a year ago with a last second touchdown.if we could bottle that and sell it, we could all be millionaires! It doesn't hurt that he'll have a very good group of pass catchers waiting for him in Houston. The Texans paid the same price, but in stages contingent that their quarterback, Deshaun Watson, would be available.

How much that has to do with Watson' opinion of the Cardinals' situation is only a guess. Why am I even talking to you if I have to sit up here and be relegated for some dude who was a damn no-name until the draft was approaching because he had 13 starts? If a suitor fails to materialize in the early going of the first round, though, keep an eye out for the Texans to snatch him up as their quarterback of the future.

Watson was the third quarterback drafted.

In Watson they get a player who threw for 4,593 yards and 41 touchdowns last season to lead Clemson to the national title. Teams might be eyeing quarterbacks Mitchell Trubisky and Deshaun Watson, while running backs Leonard Fournette and Christian McCaffrey could both go in the top 10.

Watson's resilient nature in the midst of so many hard hits by Alabama in the national championship game caught Perry's eye. Watson admitted to Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio that he's tried on nearly every team uniform after creating himself in the video game.

"That's what you play football to do, is win", Watson said.

Savage will likely keep the job through training camp and the preseason and be the team's opening day starter.

"I've never seen the kid get excited during the game", Miller said.
