Quarterbacks coach Brandon Streeter met with the media Tuesday morning at Dabo Swinney's media golf outing, and he says that he thinks quarterback Deshaun Watson has added about 16 pounds since the national championship game.
"If you look back at that game, I think he played against Alabama at about 202 pounds," Streeter said. "He comes in the other day and he's 218 pounds, and that's a good thing. Our goal for him - for starting fall camp - was 215 so he's further along than we wanted. If he can maintain that 215 throughout the season, then that's what we want. I would be very pleased."
Streeter then added that Watson hasn't lost any of his speed. If anything, he's faster.
"His legs are thicker, and he's added good weight," he said. "If you looked at him in the spring, he was faster then than he was at any time last fall. I think he's probably even faster now."
His final numbers for the season were 4104 yards passing, 1105 yards rushing, 35 passing TD’s, and 12 rushing TD’s.
