Clemson QB Deshaun Watson Says He Wasn't Dissing Browns At Awards Banquet

No playoff wins since 1994, no playoff appearances since 2002, only three winning records in the past 23 years.

Watson got the week off to a good start Wednesday when he measured in at 6-foot-3 and 221 pounds - ideal specs for a quarterback and yet another checkmark in his favor. "He does not shrink". He possesses the most experience of all the top-tier prospects and has proven capable of putting a team on his back en route to championship success.

Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson would like to duplicate those twin accomplishments.

The three-year starter completed his collegiate career third in ACC history in total offense, threw 90 career touchdown passes, and is at the top of Clemson's career list in completion percentage, passer rating and total offense per game. That is good news for the Chiefs as they look to replace Jamaal Charles. Starting back in high school, the way I was raised, coming from the projects and being able to get out of that.

DeShaun Watson says he's motivated to prove that he is one of the best quarterbacks in the country. He has made consistently National Football League level throws throughout his time at Clemson. "He's a natural-born leader, and he might not be that vocal but he leads by example, does the right thing on and off the field, and the amount of poise and how calm he is in tough situations (means), I think, he's going to be a great player". "That's all I've been doing".

Hue Jackson said his resume is impressive. The Boston Herald got in the mix Friday, reporting the Patriots are exploring options for backup quarterbacks on the free agent market, which would only make sense if they're considering dealing Garoppolo.

Watson had what sounded like a very plausible explanation for a report saying he wanted to play for the Dallas Cowboys.

"My goal isn't to be the number one pick", Watson said. As the players went through the drills, I was largely impressed with what I saw.

Watson hits just about every check mark that Jackson is looking for in a quarterback.

They should potentially meet with other top quarterbacks such as Deshone Kizer of Notre Dame and Davis Webb of California as well as some developmental prospects. "In terms of guys who have "it" when the lights come on, Deshaun Watson has it". "I think being a quarterback, that's the biggest thing that should be recognized".

That's one of the reasons there isn't the same kind of vibe at this combine as there was in the past two years, when quarterbacks went 1-2 in the draft, with Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota in 2015, followed by Jared Goff and Carson Wentz a year ago. It's no joke, Watson would like to be the future franchise quarterback in Cleveland. "That resulted in more interceptions, which is something you're going to have to endure when you make that transition".
