Houston Texans quarterback and Atlanta-area native Deshaun Watson is quickly showing signs of progress with his knowledge of the team's playbook, according to an article from Aaron Wilson in the Houston Chronicle.

Texans coach Bill O’Brien said the Heisman Trophy finalist for Clemson and former Gainesville High School star has improved each day he’s been on the field for them so far with respect to his reads and grasp of what they’re trying to do on offense.

O’Brien and teammates say Watson has shown himself to be a hard worker and a quick study in his short time in the NFL.

He’ll compete with Tom Savage and Brandon Weeden for the starting quarterback job this fall. Neither started more than two games for Houston in 2016.
