Houston Texans’ quarterback Deshaun Watson has proven his doubters wrong during his first NFL season.

Houston Texans’ rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson has taken the NFL by storm since taking as the starter midway through the Texans’ week one loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Former NFL scout and current NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah praised Watson on Twitter.

Jeremiah brought up the fact that Watson is able to make quick decisions. That’s not something that rookie quarterbacks are typically able to do. It usually takes some time for them to get acclimated to the speed of the game after making the jump from college. It looks like the speed of the NFL doesn’t affect Watson.

A lot of young quarterbacks struggle with hitting their receivers on short to immediate routes. We all remember how the knock on Watson was his lack of accuracy leading up to this year’s draft. Whoever said that was wrong. He has the touch to make accurate throws.

The thing that separates the best quarterbacks from average signal callers in the NFL are the ones that are able to stay calm in the pocket. And despite an average offensive line, Watson is poised when he drops back to pass.

This Sunday the Texans will match up with a Kansas City Chiefs defense that looked very vulnerable on Monday against quarterback Kirk Cousins and the Washington Redskins. There is a good chance that Watson could have another big game as he prepares for his fourth NFL start.
