13. Deshaun Watson (2017)
Deshaun Watson might have turned out to be a textbook case study for the idea of “you can’t measure what’s inside a guy’s heart.” But leading up to the 2016 NFL Draft, teams had legitimate questions as to whether Watson had the height (6’2), arm strength, accuracy, or durability to compete in the NFL.
Sure, he defeated Nick Saban and the mighty Crimson Tide, but there were plenty of people who wondered whether Watson was more of a product of Dabo Swinney’s quarterback-friendly offensive schemes. That’s why the pre-draft mocks had Watson going anywhere from the top handful of picks to late in the first round of the draft.
