Deshaun Watson Posts Message After Being Drafted By The Houston Texans

Deshaun Watson is pumped to be a Texan.

The Houston Texans made a huge jump up from the No. 25 spot in order to draft Deshaun Watson. The Texans swapped first round draft picks with the Cleveland Browns, who held the No. 12 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Houston also gave up its first round selection in the 2018 draft in order to snag Watson early in the first round.

The former Clemson standout quarterback was the third quarterback taken in the draft, even though he had the most success in college. Will the Chicago Bears and Kansas City Chiefs regret not taking Watson instead of Mitchell Turbisky and Patrick Mahomes? Only time will tell, but in the meantime, here's Deshaun Watson reacting to being drafted by the Texans.

After taking Clemson to back-to-back national titles against Alabama, walking away with a stirring comeback performance in the 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship, Watson was the most accomplished quarterback in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Watson heads to a team with its fair share of quarterback struggles in recent seasons. However, with a great quarterback coach like Bill O'Brien at the helm, Watson could be in for a great career.
