Former Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson had the most accomplished career of any QB in the upcoming 2017 NFL Draft, and he apparently was just as sharp off the field during his combine interviews.

One scout told Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman that Watson was perhaps the best interview they had ever conducted.

?Maybe the best interview I?ver ever had with a guy. Quick learner. Probably knows as much about football as any other prospect I?ve been around, and that includes guys like Peyton Manning. He was that impressive.?

Watson led Clemson to a national championship a season ago, and he was a two-time Heisman finalist with the Tigers. He threw for 4,593 yards and 41 touchdowns in his junior season.

Currently on NFL.com, four different analysts have Watson being drafted in the first round, and two analysts have Watson being drafted at No. 10 by the Buffalo Bills.
