Buzz: Boyd is tailor-made for coordinator Chad Morris' version of the spread. Morris came aboard last season, which was Boyd's first as the starter; to say the pairing went well is an understatement. Clemson won the ACC title behind a powerful offenses guided by Boyd, who threw for 3,828 yards and 33 TDs; he also ran for 218 yards and five scores. Ellington had some injury issues but still ran for 1,178 yards and 11 TDs; he had five 100-yard games. Watkins was the nation's best freshman last season. Clemson needed someone to emerge as the go-to receiver, and Watkins was up to the task. He had 82 catches for 1,219 yards and 12 touchdowns. He also was effective on reverses and as a kick returner, including scoring against Maryland. He missed a game with an injury late in the season, but still had five 100-yard games and three with at least 150 yards.
