was ranked #2 overall in ESPN's Top 25 ACC Players for 2015.

"There might not be a player in college football with as much potential this year as Watson, but three serious injuries in his first year at Clemson have tempered the enthusiasm," ESPN said. "Still, project his 2014 stats (68 percent completions, 19 TDs, 2 INT, 10.7 yards/attempt) over a full season, and he'd easily be in Heisman Trophy contention. He insists he's healthy now, and Watson has myriad weapons at his disposal in what could be one of the nation's best offenses in 2015."

In his rookie campaign, Watson completed 67.9% of his passes for 1,466 yards (10.7 per attempt) with 14 touchdowns and only two interceptions for a tremendous quarterback rating of 188.57. He also had five scores rushing. Another superlative is that he had a nation's best 10.7 yards per pass attempt.

Pittsburgh running back James Conner was ranked as the #1 player in the ACC according to ESPN.
