Deshaun Watson ranked #1 player in CFB Playoff

Davey O'Brien winner and Heisman finalist Deshaun Watson was ranked by ESPN Insider on Tuesday as the top player in the upcoming college football playoff.

Watson was picked over Heisman winning running back Derrick Henry from Alabama.

"No player means more to his team than Watson," ESPN insider said. "His 69.5 percent completion percentage ranks third in the country and he's thrown 30 touchdown passes despite losing his top receiver in Mike Williams to a season-ending neck injury during the first game of the season. At 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, his quick burst and instincts make him a threat to break long runs off options, designed keepers and scrambles."

Watson has completed 287 passes out of 413 attempts for 3512 yards and 30 touchdowns and 11 interceptions this season. He has also shown his tremendous dual-threat ability with 163 carries for 887 yards and 11 touchdowns on the ground.
