Comparison

Deshaun Watson Cleveland Browns

Possesses a naturally slender build and frame. Narrow through the shoulders and upper body. Should tack on some bulk at the next level once he gets in a college strength program. Tests as one of the better athletes among the quarterbacks in the 2019 cycle. Has a quick, compact throwing motion with the ability to drive the ball downfield from the pocket and off-platform. Does a nice job of changing ball speed and putting touch on throws. Adept at operating a high octane spread offense. Reads defenses and quickly identifies coverage busts. Dangerous in the RPO game with his vision, quick trigger and running ability. A legitimate run threat who stresses defenses not only as a vertical and quick passer but with the ability to rip off chunk runs and pull away from some defensive backs at the second level. Is the most prolific top quarterback from a stats perspective in the 2019 cycle. Can continue improving the consistency of his mechanics and release. Will need to add significant mass to sustain hits at the next level. Projects as a multi-year Power 5 starter with the upside of being an all-league quarterback at the helm of a highly productive offense if put in the right situation. Projects to an early round NFL draft selection.
