NFL Draft 2017: Deshaun Watson's momma brings son to tears

Watson was emotional when the Houston Texans took him Thursday night. He was even more emotional when reading a note from his mom.

Whether you like Deshaun Watson as an NFL prospect or not, it's hard not to root for the young man.

Knowing his story of having a home paid for by former Tampa Bay Buccaneer Warrick Dunn , or simply the way he carries himself, it's easy to want to see the young man succeed.

But when you see his reaction to a note written by his mother after the 2017 national champion was selected No. 12 overall by the Houston Texans, it's hard to not show emotion for the former Clemson Tiger.

Watson was handed a note at the draft party last night and what happened next is tear-jerking, not just for the viewer, but for Watson.
