NFL Scouts to be in attendance for ACC Championship

Four NFL scouts are reportedly going to be scouting Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson and others during the 2016 ACC Championship game in Orlando, Fla. on Saturday night at 8 pm ET.

The teams that will be in attendance in the press box include the Chicago Bears, Cleveland Browns, Miami Dolphins, and the San Francisco 49ers according to NFL.com.

Some of the top Clemson players that can showcase their abilities include wide receiver Mike Williams, defensive back Cordrea Tankersley, and of course Watson.

"Williams is at his best when he's fighting for contested throws, using his size (6-foot-3, 225 pounds) and superior ball skills to beat smaller cornerbacks for big gains," NFL.com said. "Facyson, however, will be more of a physical challenge than Williams is used to. At 6-2, 200 pounds, he's a more physical presence than most cornerbacks, and he's broken up 11 passes on the year. Facyson figures to have more to gain in this matchup. Williams is a proven star, and Clemson coach Dabo Swinney insists he'll be the first wide receiver drafted in April."

The latest NFL mock draft had Deshaun Watson and Mike Williams both projected in the first ten picks of the 2017 NFL Draft.
