The Texans select Deshaun Watson at No. 12 in NFL Draft

April 28, 2017; Houston, TX, USA; Houston Texans first round draft pick Deshaun Watson poses with a jersey during a press conference at NRG Stadium.

This comes after the Texans traded Brock Osweiler to the Browns in March in a salary dump, throwing in a 2017 sixth-round pick and 2018 second-round pick for the Browns' 2017 fourth-round pick.

The Houston Texans traded up in the First Round of the 2017 NFL Draft to select Watson, who they hope to be the next (and arguably first) franchise QB in Texans history. Now I'm finally being introduced into the National Football League.

The 6-foot-4, 228-pounder has played in five games - two as a rookie and three last season - but hasn't thrown a touchdown pass yet.

Houston's goal here was to find that quarterback of the future while laying the groundwork for contention over the short term. Should Watson win the starting job, Houston will be looking for him to help them make the jump from playoff contenders to a team capable of challenging for Super Bowl glory. Making such a trade would also seem to indicate that the team believes Watson is a Day 1 starter.

Clements told a group of Clemson alumni that on draft night, he jokingly texted the Houston Texans' president, former Tigers soccer player Jamey Rootes: "Draft Deshaun". "Getting to play wih them again is really a blessing". "And I don't even know what to say". Hopkins, Houston's first-round pick in 2013, expressed his excitement about the pick by simply tweeting a smiling face emoji soon after he was selected.
