Carlos Watkins Joins Familiar Faces with the Houston Texans

Last night, the Houston Texans traded their first-round pick this year and next year to select Deshaun Watson.

When the Houston Texans traded away his main competition (Brock Osweiler) and it looked like he was the starter heading into the 2017 season, the NFL Draft happened. The Watson family was assisted by former National Football League player Warrick Dunn, who helped provide them with a home through Habitat for Humanity.

The only quarterbacks on the roster were Tom Savage and Brandon Weeden.

"He's a victor, 33-5 as a college quarterback, national champion", O'Brien said after the selection was made. It doesn't hurt that he'll have a very good group of pass catchers waiting for him in Houston.

Watson's leadership and work ethic were also factor's in the Texans' decision to trade up for him, and Smith thinks that will help Watson get up to speed.

Watson, a two-time Davey O'Brien award victor, is regarded as the greatest quarterback in Clemson history, having guided the Tigers to back-to-back national championship appearances with the title going to Clemson in 2017.

Sashi Brown did not make the call to Myles Garrett to inform the defensive end the Browns made him the first pick in the draft.

DCFS spokeswoman Veronica Resa said in an email that DCFS personnel had been at the home about 3:20 p.m. The Will County Sheriff's Office said investigators will hold a news conference Thursday morning.

Lombardi was a guest onThe Rich Eisen Show on Monday and was asked which rookie quarterback he believes has the best chance at starting this coming season.

The Texans then picked Clemson national-championship winning quarterback Deshaun Watson at No. 12. "I definitely can take on that transition".

Deshaun Watson did that for us and many more people last night.

As the editor of this site and purveyor of about 20 different mock drafts here in the last couple of months, I can not help myself. They've got Lamar Miller in the backfield.

"I know it's going to be a challenge, which is what I'm up for".

Trubisky becomes the fourth UNC player taken as the second overall player in the draft, joining Ken Willard (1965), Lawrence Taylor (1981) and Julius Peppers (2002).

If Watson can prove himself to be heads and shoulders ahead of Savage, he will likely start out of the gate.
