Trade! Texans move up, grab Deshaun Watson

Trade! Texans move up, grab Deshaun Watson

Nevertheless, that did not discourage the former Heisman Trophy victor and National champion as he was happy to be a Houston Texan on draft night.

The Houston Texans have selected DeShaun Watson with the 12th pick of the NFL Draft after trading with the Cleveland Browns to pick in that position. The Texans used the 12th pick to draft Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson.

Regardless of how it was bought, Watson's mother seemed excited about her new vehicle and riding in style this year as her son is expected to start in the Texans' upcoming season.

Right now, there's no telling if the Clemson star will sit behind Tom Savage and learn the Houston offense or if he will be thrown into the fire. The Texans insist that they're OK with that.

But as expected, the hard work is just beginning.

Watson also had a great time with the Houston coaching staff and that solidified Watson has the Texans' top target.

Melania Trump's Shoe Style as First Lady
Trump, who is living in NY through the duration of the school year, is spending her day at a luncheon for Senate spouses. Grisham concluded by saying the entire story about Melania Trump's pregnancy is completely "fictional".

His mom had her tongue surgically removed as she battled cancer when Watson was a teenager, beating all odds to be there for her son on draft night.

It's a win-win for both teams, really.

The quarterback was the second Clemson player taken in the first round, following wide receiver Mike Williams at No. 7 by the Chargers. They have to be, to play the rough sport they're in.

Last season with the Clemson Tigers, Watson ended up completing 67.0 percent of his pass attempts for 4,593 yards, 41 touchdowns, and 17 interceptions. Whenever my name is called, my opportunity is called, I'm just going to take advantage of it.

After winning the 2017 College Football National Title in January, Deshaun Watson paid tribute to former Texas Longhorns QB Vince Young. "When the chips were down he was able to lead his team to victory. I think [Tom] Savage will start the season, but eventually Watson's going to have to play if they're going to be any good".
