The Browns already have Houston's second-round pick in 2018 after the trade for Brock Osweiler this offseason. A starter for two-plus seasons, he led Clemson to two national title games and won the national title in his final year at Clemson. He completed 67.4% of his passes with an 8.4 YPA and 90:32 TD-to-INT ratio. She raised Watson and his siblings while battling tongue cancer, which she beat.

Watson will seemingly not be asked to start for Houston straight away, with Tom Savage the incumbent at the quarterback position for the Texans.
Adding DeShaun Watson to the team will make the Texans a tough team in the AFC.
The Houston Texans made the most aggressive draft move in franchise history by trading up to fill their biggest need and select quarterback Deshaun Watson in the first round of the National Football League draft. "Both those guys are my boys, so that's all I have to say about that".
There are many connections between Deshaun Watson at Clemson and his predecessor at Texas.
It is the inherent risk of making any decision during the draft, but if the Browns feel like they can get their guy at pick No. 25, then it is hard to argue with the decision.
If it was based exclusively on college, Watson would be the number one pick. This is the type of pick that could make Houston a perennial Super Bowl contender for the next decade. He may back up Tom Savage in 2017, but it wouldn't be shocking to see him win the starting job out of the gate.
