HOUSTON (SPORTSRADIO 610) - Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson was asked to define his favorite moment as a player when he sat down with Sean Pendergast in the Verizon Artist Lounge.

“From my whole career? When I got drafted here,” Deshaun said.

Draft night was hectic, but still a great experience being surrounded by his mother, agent and quarterback coach.

“Next thing you know, Houston traded up and O.B. (Bill O’Brien) called me, and I’m like, ‘Thank God’. Everything worked out perfectly, and it was a great night and its been great ever since,” Watson said.

There were other potential landing spots for him including Cleveland, but Houston felt like the place that was meant to be.

“It was the perfect fit. In a situation, of course, at the time needing a quarterback, and being in a great city. A young city with a lot of talent. It was just a perfect fit. You couldn’t make it up.”
