SEATTLE, WA - OCTOBER 29: Quarterback Deshaun Watson /

Former Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson has set his mind on being the best that he can be. Could he surpass the legend Tom Brady?

Former Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson was named to the NFL all-rookie team this season, even though he only got to play in less than half of the games this season.

Watson lit the league on fire in seven games where it seemed as if he was somewhat single-handedly carrying the Texans to victories.

Watson tore his ACL and was forced to be out for the remainder of the season.

He finished 2017 with 1,699 yards passing and 19 touchdowns to eight interceptions. That’s not too bad for a guy that many “experts” said would never amount to anything in the NFL.

He said it:

Watson was on Good Morning Football on Friday morning and said he looks to surpass Tom Brady in rings.

The intangibles line up…

Will Deshaun Watson actually win seven rings by the time he’s 40? Probably not, but he’s setting goals for himself and there’s no telling what he can do before it’s all said and done.

I do know one thing: Deshaun Watson has the intangibles.

He’s the type of guy that has the right mindset and ability to chase some of the greatest of all time.

I do believe that Watson will lead Houston to at least one Super Bowl before his career is over and probably break some records along the way. I think NFL MVP honors is also in his wheelhouse.

He’s only been around for less than half of a season, but people are finally seeing what’s special in this kid.

Next: Three-headed monster will lead Clemson offense

His drive, his talent, and his leadership set him apart.

We wish Deshaun the best as he continues to recover from the injury and, who knows, maybe this time next year we’re talking about the Texans on Super Bowl Sunday?
