15. Deshaun Watson
With the 12th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans drafted Clemson quarterback DeShaun Watson. Watson was the third quarterback taken in the draft, behind Mitchell Trubisky (2nd overall) and Patrick Mahomes (10th overall). Watson made his first regular-season appearance on September 10, 2017, against the Jacksonville Jaguars, after starting quarterback Tom Savage was benched at halftime. From that point on, Watson set the league on fire with his dazzling play.
Unfortunately, Watson’s season was cut short due to injury. On November 2, Watson tore his ACL on a non-contact play during practice, prematurely ending his rookie season. In 7 games (6 starts) of his rookie year, Watson finished with 1,699 passing yards, 19 touchdowns, and 8 interceptions. He also rushed for 269 yards and 2 touchdowns. If not for the injury, there’s a very good chance Watson finishes at the top of this list.
