Analysis

DEPTH CHART FEATURE - What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said before DESHAUN WATSON made the Houston Texans' depth chart: Clemson, 6024 221 4.68. Junior entry. Thirty-five game starter from Gainesville, GA. The athletic record-setter guided Clemson to back-to-back College Football National Championship games, winning the title this past January. Led the Tigers to 28 wins over his last two years for the Orange and Purple. The most decorated player in school history, starting with a pair of top three Heisman Trophy finishes. Numerous All-America, all-conference, and All-ACC Academic awards, National Championship MVP and two-time ACC Championship MVP. One of six permanent team captains. Intellect and ability to take in information is off the chart. Bright hard worker who loves the game. A true two-way threat. Keeps his head in the highest pressure situations. Watson is a competitive and tough kid who hangs, sets, and adjusts well in the pocket. He has played against the best competition college football offers and wins. He drives the quick tempo offense and utilizes his weapons to move the ball. He rarely throws the ball into tight windows, especially in the end zone where NFL quarterbacks make their money. He completes a lot of passes, but many are great catches, not anticipatory throws where the receivers catch the ball in stride and rack up extra yards. Several of the passes are low and behind his targets. The receivers must make adjustments to the routes on a regular basis. He throws a catchable ball. More so on the move rolling right. His completion rate is high because of the variety of screen passes, seams, and slant routes. Even then, his passes are incredibly inaccurate. He really struggles with deep accuracy because of his inconsistent footwork in the pocket. He can escape and see the field and make a good play out of a bad one. But he must win from the pocket in the NFL. There is no doubt that Watson will work to carry over his pattern of success to Sundays. He must learn to take snaps and drop back from center, read complex coverages where the corners will bait you, anticipate windows, and process the information in a nano-second. Accuracy and extreme decision making will be the key to the right-hander’s success. Durability is a concern due to past injuries and slender build. 2016 stats: 388/579, 4593 yds, 67%, 41 TD, 17 INT, 629 yds rushing, 9 TD, 151.2 QB rating. Ball velocity 45 mph. OSR:3/13. First/second round. (A-33, H-9 3/4, SS-4.31, VJ-32.5).
