Deshaun is one smooth operator. He works a defense like a Don Juan works his
charms on woman only to break their hearts in the end. He is a pure pocket
passer with excellent accuracy and excellent overall arm talent standing in the
pocket and makeing throws that most quarterbacks at the college level are not
able to make. He is a quiet leader and has this calm demeanor most of the game
when he is under pressure. He has good athletic talent to run the ball when
necessary and is mentally one of the toughest quarterbacks that I have seen at
the college level. He has quiet feet in the pocket and has that innate ability
to feel the pressure and move around gaining extra time to throw down the field.
On passing plays when he breaks the pocket he looks to pass the ball more than
to run. There is a little bit of Eli Manning in this kids overall play by that I
mean, he is calm and quiet with a sneaky competitive nature that challenges him
to make big plays in the big games.
Like I said Deshaun reminds me of Eli Manning. Both can be as erratic throwing
the ball as they are accurate. Deshaun needs to add a little more bulk to his
body without it affecting his throwing mechanics. Last year Deshaun was
extremely accurate throwing the ball but this year he added a little more muscle
and I feel this might have messed with his mechanics and made him struggle early
in the year with his accuracy.
Deshaun is a top talent in my book and if youíre smart and need a
quarterback in this draft you will trade your best milking cow, her future five
calves and the Bull, and thatís no bull. Donít think that because his accuracy
level went down this year that makes it a reason to pass on him. After all every
Head Coach and Defensive Coordinator in the SEC (in the off season) studied Deshaun to stop him and still with all that study and special defenses against
him, he played at a remarkable level all season long. Thatís the sign of a
potential great player for the next level. Deshaun (Don Juan) Watson is a
frustrating player to play against because of his ability to adjust in a smooth
calculating way his physical play and thinking during a game. When you see a
Quarterback with obvious football intelligence, who can throw the ball with the
velocity and accuracy Deshaun possesses you select him early in a draft because
not many college QBís come along in a draft with his talents to play the
position at the level he has performed at for the last two years.
