The Houston Texans need Deshaun Watson to add to his already impressive play, and here are three keys to improved success.
When the Houston Texans selected Deshaun Watson with the 12th overall pick out of Clemson, they knew — or at least were hoping — they had finally found their franchise quarterback via the NFL Draft. Since making that selection, in his abbreviated two seasons in the league, Watson hasn’t let down the franchise.
Since stepping onto the field for the Texans, Watson has played in 24 games (including the playoffs) in his career, where he has a winning record as a quarterback at 14-9 with 11 wins last season and three wins his rookie campaign.

Watson is now entering his third season in the NFL, and the Texans are expecting even greater play in his progression as a starter, but the thing is, Watson himself is also expecting even more improved play.
Watson has done his part this offseason in getting closer with the offense and becoming more of a complete unit.
Deepi Sidhu of HoustonTexans.com wrote the following about Watson in a training camp article last week:
"“Akins said that Watson spent a lot of time in the offseason working on chemistry off the field, from bowling to inviting everyone over to his house during holidays.”"
Things like that are just as important as working on routes in the summer heat. Eventually it will show on the field that the offense is closer and on more of the same page.
For Watson, and the Texans offense, there is still more work to do this training camp, and here are three keys for Watson to have continued and improved success in 2019.
