PHILADELPHIA, PA - APRIL 27: Deshaun Watson of Clemson visits the SiriusXM NFL Radio talkshow after being picked
For the Houston Texans , so much of their future relies on the shoulders of Deshaun Watson fresh out of the draft from Clemson.
He also demonstrated that if a nickel package is thrown at him he’ll blow through it like tissue paper which resulted in his 15-yard run for the touchdown with 56 seconds left in the third quarter.
Although I give the proverbial caveat that this is just a Houston Texans preseason game, he just doesn’t look like your typical rookie out there.
Watson was in for a little over two quarters — overlapping the second, third and fourth — to go 15-for-25 for 179 yards with a 81.9 passing rating.
