Justin Weiss: Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson
The Giants have reportedly started thinking about Eli Manning’s successor, and Watson, a high-end talent with a penchant for winning the big game, should be on their radar.
Now I know, there are more pressing needs at left tackle and middle linebacker, but opportunities to select a passer like Watson don’t present themselves every day. Watson has good pocket awareness and the ability to make plays with his feet.
Although there are concerns about his intermediate accuracy and lack of experience making progression reads, scouts look for the ‘toolbox’ (size, arm talent, mechanics, and footwork), and he doesn’t disappoint.
