Deshaun Watson making progress in OTAs

Posted Jun 2, 2017

Rookie QB Deshaun Watson continues to learn and grow on the job with the Texans.

Deshaun Watson has made progress.

After two weeks of organized team activities (OTAs), Texans head coach Bill O'Brien lauded the rookie quarterback's work ethic, and explained one of the biggest challenges he's faced.

"
He’s gotten better every day," O'Brien said after Wednesday's practice. "I think the hard part about this week is there’s more snaps in the red zone where things happen a lot faster down there. That’s always something that takes a rookie quarterback probably the longest to learn how fast things happen down there."

Defensive lineman D.J. Reader, a college teammate of Watson's in 2014 and 2015, has seen the first rounder put in the same effort on and off the field as he did back in South Carolina.

"He’s a hard worker," Reader said. “I’ve seen him grow a lot. I was there when he came as a freshman. He came in and put his head down, went to work. That’s him all the way. That’s what Deshaun does. He’s a worker."

O'Brien said Watson was well-prepared by his three years at Clemson.

"He’s in here all the time studying," O'Brien said. "I think he was coached really well at Clemson, so he has a good basic fundamental knowledge of football. He’s got instincts and he’s getting better every day.”

Watson and the Texans have the weekend off and will resume OTAs at the Houston Methodist Training Center on Monday.
