Bills Visiting With Clemson QB Deshaun Watson Friday

Josina Anderson of ESPN reports that the Bills have scheduled to visit with QB Deshaun Watson at Clemson on Friday.

Buffalo is apparently doing to extra work on Watson before the upcoming draft.

Some have said that the Bills at No. 10 overall are likely the trigger point for quarterbacks to come off of the board, which means that teams such as the Browns may have trade up ahead of Buffalo to get their desire quarterback.

A report from a few weeks ago mentioned that Bills GM Doug Whaley is “in love” with Watson.

Watson has visited the Texans, Cardinals, 49ersJaguars, Browns and Chiefs. The Bears have also come up as a team to watch for Watson.

On Wednesday, Jason Cole of B/R reported that “several” teams have been impressed with Watson’s intangibles, as they try to rate him against the other quarterbacks in this year’s draft class.

Cole spoke to one head coach who said Watson has a “CEO presence” to him when walking into a room and he’s viewed as the best leader of this year’s quarterback class.

Even so, Cole says there are concerns about Watson’s ability to last in the NFL, due to his size.

During his college career at Clemson, Watson has completed 67.7 percent of his passes for 9,201 yards to go along with 83 touchdowns and 29 interceptions over the course of 32 games. Watson has also contributed 1,744 yards rushing and 21 touchdowns on the ground.

We have him being selected by the Cardinals in the First Round of our 2017 NFL Mock Draft.
