Josina Anderson of ESPN is reporting that Clemson QB Deshaun Watson is visiting with the Chiefs on Monday and will then travel to Cleveland to meet with the Browns on Tuesday.
The Browns have come up as a potential landing spot for Watson, but others seem to think Mitch Trubisky could be their guy if they target a quarterback in round one.
As for the Chiefs, they’re clearly doing work on this year’s quarterback class and there’s at least a chance they could take one later on in the first round, depending on who’s available to them. They have made it clear that Alex Smith will be their starter in 2017, so Kansas City could take a quarterback prospect to develop and eventually replace Smith in the coming years.
Watson worked out for the 49ers a few weeks ago.
Watson, 21, led Clemson to a National Championship earlier in the year and is now among the best quarterback prospects in this year’s draft class.
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.
