    The data used are rate stats, so injury shouldn't have mattered. However, it is based on passing only. And Watson for all his magic was a flawed passer. Lots of great passes mixed in with terrible interceptions. He would likely grade out much higher when you account for his running ability but just passing wise I can see him this low.

    ESPN has ranked Watson as the best young QB to build around; pretty bad list though:

    I’m guessing he’s limiting the list to QBs who became ‘established’(Goff started last year; Kizer shouldn’t start next year) starters this year.

    Just imagine Watson with a really great offensive line. All efforts must be made to protect our franchise QB.
