Deshaun Watson was emotional after the Houston Texans traded up to No. 12 to select him.
The former Clemson star is now set to join Bill O’Brien’s team, where he will be competing with Tom Savage and Brandon Weeden for the starting quarterback job.
After being drafted, Watson received a letter backstage that was written by his mother.
While reading the letter, Watson was moved to tears in what became one of the most heart-warming moments of Day 1 of the 2017 NFL Draft.
Day 2 of the NFL Draft — which features Round 2 and Round 3 — kicks off tonight at 7 p.m. ET.
