Watson (knee) practiced without a brace at mandatory minicamp this week, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports. "The knee is doing good," Watson said Wednesday. "For the nine-week goal we put in from the beginning [of the offseason program], I'm pretty much where I wanted to be. Kind of passed it inside in the weight room, mentally and also on the field, so everything's going smoothly right now."

2017

The Texans traded their 2018 first-round pick to move up 13 spots and draft Watson 12th overall, believing they found their franchise QB. Incumbent Tom Savage enters Week 1 as the starter, but if he struggles it will be hard to keep the rookie off the field. Savage is no proven commodity himself, with two starts in three years and a 60.9 career completion percentage in five appearances. And while Watson's ceiling is obviously higher, his floor is probably higher too because of his running ability. At 6-2, 221, the dual-threat Watson is an exceptional athlete who can throw on the run or tuck the ball and make plays with his legs. In Clemson's spread offense, he wasn't asked to read the entire field and displayed inconsistent decision-making and accuracy, which lead to 32 interceptions in 38 games. But according to scouts, accuracy, especially deep-ball accuracy, can be easily improved with mechanical adjustments and better footwork as he transitions to a pro-style offense and working under center. Watson's poise in the pocket and leadership skills impressed the Texans, who cycled through a number of journeymen quarterbacks in recent years while the defense carried the team. Watson will have a solid supporting cast around him, too, with Lamar Miller in the backfield and DeAndre Hopkins at receiver.
