After being selected by the Houston Texans as the 12th overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft, the quarterback out of Clemson emotionally broke down while reading a handwritten letter penned to him by his mom, Deann Watson.
"I love you, momma", Watson said in reply.
Clemson signee Tee Higgins could be the next great Clemson receiver and a future first round pick.
"Congratulations to them", he told reporters Thursday night in a press conference. "I guess if that's who they're gonna roll with, so be it".
"I know it's going to be a challenge, which is what I'm up for".
'Dance Moms' Alum Abby Lee Miller Cries Before Weight-Loss Surgery
The Dance Moms alum, 50, underwent a sleeve gastrectomy in Los Angeles to remove almost 80 percent of her stomach. Following her sudden departure from Dance Moms , Abby Lee Miller is taking drastic steps for weight loss.
Pressed further, Watson stressed that he was pleased with the way everything worked out.
A two-time Heisman Trophy finalist, Watson is the most experienced quarterback in the draft class and has the most impressive CV.
Coming soon to the @HoustonTexans.@DeshaunWatson4 to @Nukdabomb! The team announced the pick with the help of astronauts Peggy Whitson (aboard the International Space Station) and Scott Kelly (at Space Center Houston). Going up to get Watson was bold, but 100 percent the right move for the Texans to make. O'Brien and Smith both reaffirmed their commitment to Tom Savage as the starter.
Tom Savage is now the starter in Houston. Osweiler was later shipped to the Browns in an offseason deal.
The trade means the Browns now own the Houston Texans' first and second-round picks in 2018, so we are all hoping for a rough season down in Houston. All of that said, when you take a player that high, sitting him on the bench for more than one year isn't usually the plan. "It's a blessing, but I worked for it". "Don't say anything, keep my mouth shut, and keep working. I felt that he was a guy that answered the questions very honestly, had a good memory, good recall of specific plays that happened during his college career". Johnson will wait for his name to be called tonight.
