2017 NFL Draft: KC Kingdom Mock Draft

New York Jets – Trevor Beurman

Clemson. Deshaun Watson. 6. player. 30. The New York Jets have failed to find reliable quarterbacks for as long as I can remember. In this year’s draft they invest in a true winner in Deshaun Watson, who led Clemson to two undefeated seasons and a bowl championship against the college football tyrant Crimson Tide. The road to recovery begins.. Quarterback

KC Kingdom Scouting Report:

Deshaun Watson’s College Career Stats consisted of 814 completions on 1,207 pass attempts for 10,168 yards giving him a 67.4 completion percentage. He had 90 touchdowns versus only 32 interceptions for a 157.5 Quarterback Rating, per Sports Reference College Football.  

Staff Reaction:

It looks like the Browns were right to move up for their QB. The Jets have been a disaster at the most important position on the field, and this is a decisive move. With New York signing Josh McCown, there is a buffer for Watson. They definitely needed some kind of an answer here, we’ll see if Watson is it. ~ Ben Almquist

My first reaction to this choice is that the Browns drafting Mitch Trubisky forced the Jets hand. However, the pick does make a lot of sense. Newly signed Josh McCown is the presumptive starter right now but he’s not a guy to build your team around. Deshaun Watson has all of the potential in the world. He’s shown the ability to thrive under pressure in the college atmosphere. ~ Jesse Holt
