Dabo Swinney: Scouts Should Lose Their Jobs If Deshaun Watson Isn’t First Round Pick

Clemson phenom Deshaun Watson is fresh off a national championship victory over Alabama. Watson currently is a borderline first round selection at the moment being ranked below North Carolina’s Mitch Trubisky and Notre Dame’s DeShone Kizer.  His collegiate head coach Dabo Swinney, however, believes that Watson absolutely deserves to be a first-round pick.

“They should lose their jobs,” Swinney said via the Rich Eisen Show. “That is absolutely the craziest thing. They don’t know Deshaun. This guy is going to … I mean, I can’t even tell you how brilliant he is as a football player, as a person, how impactful of a man he is. He’s going to change a locker room the day he gets there. He’s just so driven, so humble. (He has an) unbelievable understanding of his platform and his skill set is off the charts. He can do anything and everything.”

Frankly, I agree with Swinney. Watson is my number one rated quarterback heading into the draft process. His back to back performances against Alabama, the best defensive in the country, should only prove that he is capable of making the transition to the NFL. Furthermore, the performance of Dak Prescott this year should help Watson’s case as they are very similar.
