Deshaun Watson

Poor Deshaun Watson has been beaten and brutalized like no other quarterback in the NFL. In 2018, Watson was pressured on 44.7 percent of his dropbacks and was sacked a league-high 62 times. That’s happening to a really mobile Deshaun Watson. Imagine if the Texans had Eli Manning as their quarterback… Luckily, Watson doesn’t suck like Eli does. Watson led the NFL with an 88.2 passer rating on pressured throws. Watson is awesome, he just needs SOME help.

It appears that Watson approves of the Texans 2019 Draft that brought in two more offensive linemen. It’s about time Houston is doing something about their egregious problem:

“We just find ways to get better,” Watson said, via the Houston Chronicle. “The front office knows exactly what they want, what they want to do with the organization and what we need to do to try to take that next step. I knew exactly what they were going to do in the draft, and what they want to do in the future. We drafted two young guys who can come in and compete and love football and want to come in and learn. They’re going to have an opportunity to come in and learn from the veteran guys and continue to try to make us better.”

Houston drafted Alabama State left tackle Tytus Howard in the first round and Northern Illinois right tackle Max Scharping in the second round. It’s something that had to be done. The Texans don’t just have a bad offensive line. It’s the worst offensive line in the league by a country mile. The fact that the Texans even made the playoffs last year with the worst offensive line in football just goes to show how great Watson is.

I would expect that Howard and Scharping start right away. They essentially have to. Howard is a converted quarterback from Alabama State. The Texans better hope they nailed these picks. If not, I don’t know how many years Watson can continue to take this kind of punishment.
