    ProFootball Focus PFF Scouting Repont on QB Deshaun Watson - Clemson

    https://www.profootballfocus.com/dra...mpaign=college

    Deshaun Watson is as tough of a prospect to evaluate as there is coming out of college.

    While he shows flashes with his arm, he is wildly inconsistent and lacks the key traits (pocket instincts/poise and field vision). He will need to play in an offense specifically built around him with a quarterback run game and pass-game scheme creativity. There will be games when the coverage structures will be simple and the route concepts will match up with the route combinations, and he will have success.

    Then there will be games where the defensive movement will give him problems or the pass rush will force him to move within the pocket and get through progressions, and he will struggle mightily. Watson is not a pure progression passer, with his limited pocket feel and vision, and whenever that’s the case, there will be a huge risk involved when hoping to land a franchise quarterback.

    The former Clemson quarterback’s work ethic and intangibles will make him an attractive option, but there will be some risk involved.

    Any chance our new HC tries to repudiate the past and may pass on a Clemson Tiger to do so? I don't know his character that well, so I am asking honestly.

    It's funny how everybody is talking up Watson because he played for a big college while Patrick Mahomes is being dismissed even though he has the best arm in the draft. Watson does not have a big arm, this Mahomes kid has a rocket and would be ideal to groom behind Tyrod for 2-3 years on the bench. He has a big arm, ideal size, mobility, leadership, toughness, immensely talented. Mahomes would be great at #10. He is the only QB I'd take there. Depending on the person, he is projected to go as early as #13 to Arizona. If it were me, I think I'd pull the trigger on Mahomes at 10 and stash him on the bench. Let Mahomes adjust to a pro offense, no rush. We got Tyrod. Eventually Mahomes will beat him out of a job. He played pitcher in baseball, he has a rifle. His arm is good, like Matthew Stafford good who ironically was a pitcher as well.

    Excellent post!! you, see it man! its exactly what I felt, when I watched all of his 2016 games, on you tube! He is an athlete who's father was a pitcher in the MLB, also. just have a great feel about the kid. He, imo, had a great interview on the NFL radio, also. again, great post! GO BILLS!

    There is no guarantee Tyrod will be here for 2-3 years. He was only brought back because we had no other choice.

    If the Bills draft a QB this year, ideally two things happen:

    1) the kid sits for 2 years behind Tyrod and develops;
    2) the kid actually pans out and is an upgrade over Tyrod and steps into the huddle in his 3rd year and takes the Bills to the playoffs.

    It's a big projection when it comes to Mahomes. He's a gunslinger and that makes us all love him but you can't hit a home run on every play in the NFL. He's going to have to adjust to reading the defense and delivering a quick, accurate ball.

    Can he do it? Maybe. But that's a big maybe with the 10th overall pick.

    Barring any trades, I hope we take a QB at 44. I would be happy with Mahomes, Webb, or Peterson there.

    What happens when we go 4-12 next year? I for one will be pissed if we draft a Qb this year and then pass on a Qb with a top 5 pick next year.

    Im sick of the QBs with accuracy issues. Add trouble with field vision and poise in the pocket, and sounds like a downgrade. No thanks
