NFL.com's scouting report on Deshaun Watson

NFL.com's analyst Daniel Jeremiah has released his early 2016 scouting report on Clemson junior quarterback Deshaun Watson.

"Watson is an outstanding playmaker at the college level but he needs to improve in the passing game," Jeremiah said. "Jared Goff and Carson Wentz were both superior as pocket passers in college. Watson has a similar skill set to Marcus Mariota, but Mariota is bigger, faster, stronger and more accurate."

Watson finished third in the Heisman Trophy balloting last season and will be one of the favorites in 2016. Watson completed 333-of-491 passes for 4,104 yards and 35 touchdowns and also had 207 rushes for 1,105 yards and 12 scores this past season.

He became the first player in NCAA FBS history to throw for 4,000 yards and rush for 1,000 yards in the same season.
