Former Clemson star quarterback Deshaun Watson's future is one of the hottest topics in all of college football as scouts, media, and fans debate his draft status in the upcoming NFL Draft. NFL.com's Bucky Brooks and Daniel Jeremiah released their latest article on Friday discussing their inside information that has Watson all over the place with NFL teams in regards to his draft projections.

"Teams are split on Deshaun Watson -- some believe he would be a good late first- or early second-round pick, while others think he is a long-term project who should be a middle-round pick," Brooks said. "Of course, all of these folks said they wouldn't be surprised if he went much higher than that -- however, they believe choosing him that high would be a mistake. I like the fact that he's going to throw at the NFL Scouting Combine next month and I'm anxious to see his official measurables."

There might be a silver lining for Watson as nobody is thrilled with the other quarterback prospects.

"I couldn't find a scout or executive who was excited about DeShone Kizer or Mitch Trubisky," Jeremiah said. "When you're talking to teams that already have an established signal-caller, there's no reason for them to feed me false information."

In 2016, Watson completed 388 passes out of 579 attempts for 4593 yards and 41 passing touchdowns with 17 interceptions for an adjusted QBR of 84.9.
