Deshaun Watson meeting with the Arizona Cardinals
Deshaun Watson is reportedly meeting with the Arizona Cardinals on Wednesday
The Arizona Cardinals are bringing in one of the top overall quarterbacks in the 2017 NFL Draft. Deshaun Watson is visiting with the organization, who is looking to find a replacement for Carson Palmer. The Cardinals have the 13th overall pick in the 2017 draft, a pick that is high enough to select a talented player at any position. The dilemma will be if the pick should be used on a quarterback, who would more than likely sit a year behind Carson Palmer, or select a player that could contribute to the team immediately.
Watson is an incredible talent, he was consistent all throughout college, and picked apart and beat the number 1 ranked defense in a championship game. If Watson was to be drafted by the Cardinals how could he help? Well, Watson is everything in a quarterback you could ask for. His college career stats prove it. 10,168 yards, 90 touchdowns, 32 interceptions and a 67.4 completion percentage.
Watson would be able to play in a Bruce Arians offense. He has a strong arm and is accurate, something coach likes. a lot. It wouldn’t be that bad either that Watson would have a full season to learn the system and learn from Carson Palmer and Arians, who has a knack for grooming quarterbacks. Watson would definitely be a solid replacement for Palmer, its just a matter of if he would be available and even if the Cardinals would take him.

There is 3 teams before the Cardinals that Watson could stand out to. The 49ers at the 2nd spot, Jets at the 6th, and the Browns at the 12th. If Watson passes through those 3 teams and is available, there is a high chance the Cardinals take him. He just isn’t a talent you could pass up. If they are bringing in Watson, obviously they are interested. We will just have to wait and see exactly how it goes later this month.
