Clemson Tigers quarterback, Deshaun Watson revealed that he would love to play for the Dallas Cowboys.
Watson won the 2017 Division One College Football Championship in an improbable upset win over coach, Nick Saban, and his Alabama Crimson Tide. Watson has had an incredible college career and many football analysts are expecting him to be selected high in the 2017 National Football League Draft. The lowly Cleveland Browns own the first selection in the 2017 draft, but a few college standouts, including Texas A & M defensive end, Myles Garrett, have expressed disinterest in playing for the franchise.
Watson, who has won the Davey O’Brien trophy two years in a row, last year told Cowboys coach, Jason Garrett, that should he win the award this year, that the Cowboys had to draft him.
“I like being in Fort Worth, Texas, and I promise you I’ll be back here,” said Watson said. “And I told coach Garrett, ‘If I’m back here, you have to draft me.’ I know a lot of Cowboys fans, Tony Romo is healthy, Dak, I’m a huge fan, love that man, he’s been successful, but hey, I did my part, you have to do your part. I’ll see you at the Combine so we’ll talk more about that.”
Watson joked that the Cowboys could trade both Romo and Prescott to the Browns to make room for him on the roster.
“The Browns do need a quarterback. You can trade both of them. They need two,” joked Watson.
