Few quarterbacks had a rookie season as beloved as the one Deshaun Watson had in 2017.
Drafted by the Texans with the 12th pick of that year’s draft, Watson had a record setting rookie year, captivating audiences and Houston sports fans in the process. He’s the first player in NFL history with 400+ passing yards, 4+ TD passes, and 50+ rushing yards in a single game, passed Kurt Warner for the most touchdowns thrown by a quarterback in his first seven career starts (19), and has the most passing touchdowns in a five-game span (18) from any rookie.
When he went down for the rest of the season with a torn ACL, it was devastating to the NFL, but it didn’t come before giving Texans fans optimism for the future. Watson finished his rookie season playing seven games while putting up 1,699 yards, 19 touchdowns and 8 interceptions for a passer rating of 103.0.
