Will Deshaun Watson be an NFL draft bust or a total stud? | The Tylt
The 2017 NFL draft class is considered a weak one for quarterbacks, but two names have risen to the top—North Carolina's Mitchell Trubisky and Clemson's Deshaun Watson. Watson led Clemson to back-to-back national championships, beating Alabama 35-31 earlier this year. The All-American quarterback was a stud for the Tigers, winning ACC Player of the Year in 2015.

NFL.com Scouting Report:
Teams will have to weigh the inconsistent field vision and decision-making against his size, athleticism, leadership and production. While not perfect, teams can add checks to both arm and accuracy boxes for Watson. However, discussions about whether or not his areas of improvement can be corrected will likely determine whether a team will view him as a high-upside prospect or a franchise quarterback. Watson's transition from Clemson's offense to a pro-style attack will obviously take time, but his combination of intangibles and athletic ability make him worth a first-round selection.
