NFL Draft

Texans rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson had scant seconds to scan the field, reading the situation on the fly Wednesday as he diagnosed defenses during a red-zone drill.

Watson spotted an open wide receiver in the back corner of the end zone, but his pass arrived too late and was slightly overthrown as a potential touchdown opportunity was lost.
