2017 NFL Mock Draft 1.0: First-Round Predictions for All 32 Picks

13 of 34

12. player. 53. . Quarterback. Clemson. Deshaun Watson

Deshaun Watson should be the second Clemson player taken in the 2017 NFL draft, and the second taken within the top 10. He may not have the attributes DeShone Kizer or Mitch Trubisky have, but Watson is a winner and has everything an NFL team desires.

The Cleveland Browns have two picks in the first-round of the 2017 NFL draft, and it’s no secret they need a quarterback. Everyone would like to see Robert Griffin III make something out of his NFL career. With all the injuries, though, that isn’t going to happen, and the Browns need to move on.

If Watson pulls off an epic upset in the National Championship and defeats Alabama, his draft stock could definitely rise. With Kizer and Trubisky ahead of him, he isn’t likely to move that far up in the draft. He could find himself jumping one of them, but chances are he’s headed to Cleveland.

With a new head coach that looks like he may finally have a plan for the Browns, Watson could be in good hands. No one wants to hear their name called by the Browns, but I’m sure Watson won’t be upset as long as he gets his chance in the pros.
