[Tex/LaTex] Avoid Option clash for package xcolor


I've looked at other questions about option clash for package xcolor to no avail. Tried putting xcolor before hyperref and tikz, tried adding options [usenames, dvispsnames] to documentclass, and I still get the error. It also appears to always find the error on line 14, regardless of what is on line 14.

How do I fix this?

Here's a MWE:

\documentclass[letterpaper, usenames, dvipsnames]{article}

\usepackage[letterpaper, top=1.125in, bottom=1.125in, left=0.75in, right=0.75in, footskip=0.00in]{geometry}
\usepackage[usenames, dvipsnames]{xcolor}
\usepackage[toc, page]{appendix}
% Make the links blue, to follow the Web convention. Using xcolor syntax, internal links will be
% 70 % blue, the remainder black, and URLs 80 % blue (brighter)
\hypersetup{colorlinks, linkcolor={blue!70!black}, citecolor={blue!50!black}, urlcolor={blue!80!black}}


% Setup Draft watermark %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\newwatermark*[allpages, angle=45, scale=6, xpos=-20, ypos=15]{\usebox\mybox}

\usepackage[usenames, dvipsnames]{xcolor}



and then let tikz load the package.

Or add whichever options tikz wants to the options you load xcolor with. For example,
