15 NFL scouts to be in attendance for Clemson-Auburn

Fifteen NFL scouts will be in attendance for Clemson's game vs. Auburn on Saturday, September 3 at Jordan-Hare Stadium at 9 pm EST.

The following NFL teams will be watching the ACC-SEC battle according to NFL.com: Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Buffalo Bills, Chicago Bears, Cleveland Browns, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Los Angeles Rams, New York Giants, Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers, Seattle Seahawks, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Tennessee Titans.

"Scouts know that Watson can win games with his arm or his legs and he showed growth throughout the 2015 season," NFL.com's Chase Goodbread said. "However, in my discussions with NFL personnel men, they aren't yet sold on Watson's ability to roll quickly through his reads and throw with consistent, NFL-caliber accuracy. Auburn knows they have to pressure Watson and Lawson will be the one most closely scrutinized by NFL scouts in that effort. Lawson is shredded and possesses impressive explosion, but he has to prove that his inability to rack up sacks has been due to injuries rather than anything related to his technique or skills. This is a huge statement opportunity for Lawson. For Watson, it's a chance to begin to chip away at NFL doubters."

Watson completed 333 of 491 passes for 4,104 yards and 35 touchdowns and also had 207 rushes for 1105 yards and 12 scores this past season. His 5,209 yards of total offense and his 47 total touchdowns were ACC records, and his rushing total was a record for a Clemson quarterback.

His 487 yards of total offense set a record for a National Championship game, and he is the first quarterback in FBS history to have at least 4,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards in a single season.
