Default Why has Watson emerged as the No. 1 QB prospect in the draft?

ESPN’s Todd McShay says there is one reason why Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson is moving up the draft boards and it has nothing to do with what he can do on the field. McShay was at Clemson’s Pro Day on Thursday and spent a lot of time talking with general managers and scouts about the Clemson quarterback.

“The more people I talk to. The more people who are around Watson and the more NFL teams I talk to who have been digging in and trying to get the mental aptitude that he has and putting him on the board and working him out from a football standpoint, mentally, the more I am starting to realize that he is emerging as the No. 1 quarterback prospect. He has rare work ethic and drive to be great, a lot like the Tom Brady, the Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers and the elite quarterbacks in the NFL. It is tough to tell which guys actually have that and which guys are selling it, but Deshaun Watson actually has that and I think it is going to be a big part of his development in the NFL as a starting quarterback.”
