The journey to NFL stardom is extremely difficult littered with trials and tribulations.
Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson knows first hand all the hard work, talent, and sacrifice that it involves to reach the elusive dream of playing football in the NFL.
Watson was featured in an NFL Draft preview commercial as he encourages Alabama running back Josh Jacobs to keep working as he is almost there to fulfilling his NFL dream.
"What's good Josh. It's Deshaun (Watson)," he said. "Man I know what you are going through. Sometimes you get a great hand and other times you don't. Living in your dad's car. Always on the move. You played the hand you had, and it paid off. The cards are about to be dealt again, Josh. This is your time my dawg."
Jacobs has several projections as the first running taken in the upcoming NFL draft. All the NFL draft action starts on Thursday, April 25 through Saturday, April 27.
This commercial featuring @deshaunwatson encouraging Alabama RB Josh Jacobs is powerful. Both overcame tough living situations as children and it sounds like that appreciation goes deeper than any Clemson-Bama rivalry— Marcel Louis-Jacques (@Marcel_LJ) April 12, 2019
