HOUSTON (CBS HOUSTON) – The Houston Texans hold the 25th selection in the opening round of the NFL draft and after missing out on the retiring Tony Romo, the team could be looking to the future of their quarterback position in less than two weeks.
Multiple media reports including NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport indicated they will welcome former All-American Clemson quarterback DeShaun Watson to Houston for a two-day visit beginning on Monday.
Watson would be one of the Texans “top 30” draft prospects that would visit the club in-person.
This visit could indicate the Texans may be willing to trade-up in the draft as Watson is believed to be on of the top quarterbacks taken in the early portion of the first round.
Watson is coming off a national championship winning season with Clemson with a win over Alabama. Watson threw for 4,953 yards and 41 touchdowns last season with the Tigers.
The Texans are still looking to add depth to their quarterback room as they have only Tom Savage and Brandon Weeden currently on the roster after trading last season’s starter Brock Osweiler to the Cleveland Browns.
