Deshaun Watson’s Scouting Report

Watson can dominate opposing defenses with both his arm and legs and is most likely the most dynamic player in college football. Watson has a slender build and will need to add weight between now and the NFL Draft. He has tremendous speed and an ability to escape the pocket and make something out of nothing. Watson has an extremely quick delivery and is very accurate with his passes at all ranges. He’s an extremely poised quarterback with a solid football IQ and is a great leader.
