Deshaun Watson, Houston Texans (1st Round, 12th Overall, Clemson) – In his first start for the Houston Texans, Watson was protected by an offensive game plan that called on him to simply “manage” the game.

Showing his mobility, Watson rushed for 67 yards on five carries (13.4 YA) with one touchdown. He led the Texans to their first victory of the season in a 13-9 win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
