Deshaun Watson and the rest of the quarterback prospects at the NFL combine were put through a series of tests and on the field drills this afternoon. Watson ran a 4.67 in the 40-yd dash before working his way on the field for the throwing portion of the day. Throughout the day, Watson was smooth and on target, drawing praise from many people. Here’s the best that we saw.

Media (like myself) invited inside to watch QB workouts are not allowed to tweet until after they end. Now that it has… wow #DeshaunWatson

I am not surprised by Watson’s performance in the least bit. Throughout his three years at Clemson, Watson consistently demonstrated superior natural ability, but, more importantly a unique focus. The bigger the moment the better Deshaun Watson performs.
Just keep checking ✅ the boxes my brother @DeshaunWatson4

Watson seemed to have improved his already high draft stock with his performance on the field today. NFL scouts were sure than he was a good athlete, however, the consistent accuracy and smooth footwork showed that he has the tools to be a day-one starter in the NFL.
