The 2017 NFL Draft is set to get underway on Thursday, April 27 with a lot of speculation surrounding the quarterbacks that could go in the first round. Clemson's Deshaun Watson is one of those quarterbacks and apparently he's already been trying to see how he'd look in different NFL uniforms on Madden.
Apparently, Watson is partial to the way he looks in an Arizona Cardinals uniform, as he said on PFT Live earlier this week:
“I’ve tried on pretty much every team,” Watson said. “I’d say Arizona Cardinals uniforms, especially the black ones [look best on me]. They are pretty nasty. I like those.”
There is no shortage of teams in the league with a need at the quarterback position heading into Thursday's draft. The Cardinals along with the Cleveland Browns, New York Jets, and San Francisco 49ers are all potential candidates to draft a quarterback and Watson may have tipped his cap regarding which team he'd like to go to.
Although the Cardinals still have Carson Palmer under center, it is clear the end is drawing near for the USC product. Palmer wasn't even sure if he wanted to return for the 2017 NFL campaign with talk of wanting to see how his build felt during the offseason.
The writing is definitely on the wall in Arizona and with the No. 13 pick in the draft, they may try to address the future at quarterback with Watson if he's still on the board. Watson joins Mitch Trubisky (North Carolina) and Patrick Mahones (Texas Tech) as the first three quarterbacks expected to be taken in this year's draft.
