New York Giants: Five Reasons To Draft Deshaun Watson
Deshaun Watson is a premier quarterback in the 2017 NFL Draft. The big question is: should the New York Giants draft him if he’s available at pick 23?
Deshaun Watson is one of the top quarterbacks in the 2017 NFL Draft. He could easily be one of the first five players off the board, but what if he isn’t? If Watson falls to 23, will the New York Giants pull the trigger on drafting him?
More importantly: should they?
Many fans want the Giants to address more prominent needs. The offensive line is underwhelming, even with all of the recent signings. It’s also well-known that the Giants are high on tight ends David Njoku and O.J. Howard—both of whom might be available by pick 23.
All the same, Jerry Reese has made it quite clear that he drafts the best available player when it’s his turn to pick. What if the Watson is the best player when Reese steps up to the proverbial plate?
There’s probably a bevy of reasons why the Giants shouldn’t draft him, but his rewards would outweigh the risks. Here are five reasons why the New York Giants should draft Deshaun Watson with the 23rd pick.
