Deshaun Watson    QB  Texans

 

 

Watson isn't sure if he'll be the Week 1 starter, ESPN.com's Jovan Buha reports. "I have no idea," said Watson. "That's up to the coaching staff. My job is to come in and learn the system, learn the organization and play my part."

First-round QB Deshaun Watson admitted he has "no idea" if he'll be the Texans' Week 1 starter. "That's up to the coaching staff," said Watson. "My job is to come in and learn the system, learn the organization and play my part." Tom Savage is still the favorite to start Week 1, which should take at least some of the pressure off Watkins as he embarks on his first NFL season. With that said, Watson could easily overtake Savage with a strong showing at training camp. The Clemson alum was the third quarterback selected in last month's draft behind North Carolina's Mitchell Trubisky and Texas Tech signal caller Patrick Mahomes.

Appearing on 1010 Jacksonville on Thursday afternoon, the Florida Times Union's Ryan O'Halloran predicted the Jaguars will select Clemson QB Deshaun Watson at No. 4 overall. This one has picked up considerable steam over the last 24 hours. Everything had seemingly been pointing to the Jaguars taking Leonard Fournette as a way to change the team's identity on offense, but going with Watson would be an even bigger way to achieve that same goal. If Watson is the pick, it would likely be coming straight from EVP Tom Coughlin flexing his muscles and forcing GM Dave Caldwell to end the Blake Bortles era. The entire first round is unpredictable this year.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports there is "growing chatter" the Jaguars will select Clemson QB Deshaun Watson with the No. 4 overall pick. The general consensus around the draft community is none of the available quarterbacks are worth a pick in the top-five, but that is not enough to prevent a couple from coming off the board in the first four picks -- the Browns are rumored to be considering UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky at No. 1 overall. Of course, this could all just be bluster from teams hoping to goad one of the quarterback-needy organizations into a trade up. We will find out for sure tonight.

WKBW Buffalo's Joe Buscaglia does not think the Bills want to select a quarterback with the No. 10 overall pick. Buffalo has been consistently linked with Clemson's Deshaun Watson and UNC's Mitchell Trubisky throughout the pre-draft process, but Buscaglia is not buying it. The Bills have several needs throughout the roster and Tyrod Taylor under contract for two more years, but they do not seem to be completely sold on Taylor or 2016 fourth-rounder Cardale Jones as the long-term answer. Even if they do not spend a first-round pick on a quarterback, the Bills will likely address the position at some point in the draft.

6-of-16 NFL scouts polled by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel voted Clemson's Deshaun Watson this year's top draft-eligible quarterback. 5-of-16 personnel men polled named Patrick Mahomes this year's top signal caller, while Mitchell Trubisky garnered four first-place votes and DeShone Kizer received the final nod. In the Journal-Sentinel's "points" system based on the scouts' rankings, Cal's Davis Webb came in fifth, Pittsburgh's Nate Peterman finished sixth, Iowa's C.J. Beathard came in seventh, and Virginia Tech's Jerod Evans placed eighth. "I really don’t like any of them," one longtime executive said. "Maybe two will go in the first round because of need but they all have holes. It’s, like, ‘Let’s see if we can develop them and get something out of them.’ It’s one of the worst groups I’ve watched in a long time."

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the Bills will meet with Clemson QB Deshaun Watson on Friday. Teams meet with a lot of players, and those meetings usually mean little. Still, this particular meeting is interesting considering Buffalo's uncertain future at quarterback and recent reports saying they are a "wild card" to draft Watson with the No. 10 overall pick. If teams are interested in grabbing "their quarterback," Buffalo might be the team they need to jump in the first round.

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller was told by an unnamed director of player personnel that the Bills are a "wild card" for Clemson QB Deshaun Watson at No. 12 overall. As many as four quarterbacks are drawing first-round buzz including Watson, North Carolina's Mitchell Trubisky, Notre Dame's DeShone Kizer and Texas Tech's Patrick Mahomes. Miller's source doesn't expect a "run on quarterbacks" until the 20s, but feels that Buffalo could buck that trend if GM Doug Whaley is "as in love with Watson as we hear he is." Of course Whaley, who is rumored to be on the outs in Buffalo, was against keeping Tyrod Taylor but was ignored by head coach Sean McDermott. In his article, Miller lists the 49ers, Bears, Bills, Jaguars and Jets as teams that will likely address quarterback in the draft.
