Following Clemson’s national championship victory over Alabama, Tigers star quarterback Deshaun Watson confirmed his intentions to declare for the 2017 NFL Draft.
There was immediate discussion over where Watson will fall in April’s draft, with many believing he will land in the first-round.
However, according to NFL.com reporter Daniel Jeremiah, he has yet to speak with a team who has the Clemson star signal-caller with a first-round grade.
his call. I'm cool either way. I'm just telling you, I haven't talked to one team that has a first rd grade on him.

Of course, it is still very early in the draft process and plenty can change between now and April 27.
