I have a theory.
A theory that when QBs are projected to go in the top 10 after a non-draft eligible season, they always fall the following year due to an over scrutinized evaluation of their play.
Did Deshaun Watson play as well in 2016 as he did in 2015?
Your internal thoughts: "NO WAY!"
But if you look at the 2015 & 2016 stats, they're almost identical and he hasn't even played in any playoff games yet...
2015: 4,104 Passing Yards, 35 TDs, 13 INTs, 67.8% Completion
2016: 3,914 Passing Yards, 37 TDs, 15 INTs, 67.6% Completion
The cons on Watson are the same as they were at the beginning of 2016 after he put on a performance for the ages against that vaunted Alabama defense in the National Championship game:
"He's too thin," "He throws too many interceptions," etc...
Last year, my favorite QB was Dak Prescott as you can even see in the thumbnail of my Top 10 QBs from the 2016 NFL Draft here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMu65QJSHL4
I believe that Watson has a lot of similar qualities that Dak has and put into a similar situation could see instant success. Although that is a rare scenario to walk into, teams with decent offensive lines and an emphasis on running the ball can draft Watson and start him from day one and allow him to develop with on-the-job training.
Watson is a gamer and will rise to the occasion. A lot of mocks are souring on him and some even having out of the 1st round. That's not going to happen, but the farther down into the first he falls, the better for his future success.
The ideal landing place for Deshaun Watson would be the Kansas City Chiefs or the Arizona Cardinals.
