Deshaun Watson, Texans (3 Points)
In what was his first complete season as a starting quarterback where he started all 16 regular-season games, plus one in the playoffs, Deshaun Watson showed his skills at a very high level, and not only that, he proved he’s well on his way into becoming one of the more well-known quarterbacks in the league.
Watson still has some things to work on, but the Texans should feel great with their quarterback position as he continues to improve his game in what will be his third season in the NFL. Last season, Watson passed for 4,165 yards with 26 touchdowns and nine interceptions as he completed 68.3 percent of his passes and had a rating of 103.1.
Watson averaged 260.3 yards per game passing and had eight completions of 40-plus yards. Watson also rushed the ball 99 times for 551 yards and five touchdowns.
The part of Watson’s game that needs to be worked on is pocket awareness, but that will keep improving the better the offensive line gets in front of him, plus he’s still a young signal caller with the upcoming season being his third year as a pro.
Houston has a quarterback on their side that can become a Top 5 player at his position, and this upcoming season could be huge for him and the Texans if things get sorted out in all areas of the offense.
