This ranking may turn a few heads.
After all, Deshaun Watson only played in seven games (and start six) for the Houston Texans as a rookie before an ACL tear in practice ended his year.
But man, what a seven-game stretch it was.cheap nike nfl jerseys from china
Watson was positively electric from the moment he stepped into the huddle, consistently using his athleticism and escapability to buy time before finding open receivers down the field. Over those first seven games as a pro, Watson tossed 19 touchdown passes—in that regard, it’s the most prolific debut from a quarterback in league history.
Texans head coach Bill O’Brien told John McClain of the Houston Chronicle he’s confident Watson can stay healthy moving forward, in part because he knows when to say when.
“That’s one thing I think Deshaun’s really good at,” O’Brien said. “We practice that. We talked to him about that. But he has a really good instinct for maybe gaining the five or six yards and then going down before he takes the shot.nfl cheap nike jerseys
“That’s a big thing that young quarterbacks usually have a problem with. He seems to have an instinct for being able to stay out of harm’s way.”
Provided O’Brien is right, the sky is the limit for the 22-year-old in his sophomore season.
The 2017 season is one Dallas Cowboys tailback Ezekiel Elliott would probably just as soon forget. One year after leading the National Football League with 1,631 yards on the ground, Elliott spent six games of his sophomore season on the shelf because of a suspension.cheap official nike nfl jerseys
As a result, Elliott failed to rush for 1,000 yards—and the Cowboys failed to make the playoffs.
It was a disaster. In retrospect, Elliott and the Cowboys would have been better off just serving the suspension to open the season instead of having the never-ending legal struggle hanging over the team for almost the entire year.
That’s all in the past now.
And the future brings with it a great chance for a rebound season.
Even amid the constant distractions last year, Elliott’s per-touch numbers remained solid. He’ll be back to his status as the focal point of the Cowboys offense in 2018. And while there were character concerns last year, no one is questioning Elliott’s ability to bang away between the tackles or wear a defense down.new nike nfl jerseys for sale cheap
