.

For the season, Watson is 75-112 for 1176 yards and 12 touchdowns and only two interceptions. He has an adjusted quarterback rating of 88.3.

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Watson is already going through his progressions in a way Boyd wasn’t able to do until his senior year. He is also finding checkdowns instead of throwing deep into double-coverage like Boyd often did. Watson is a calm presence, whose innocent and fun demeanor is contagious. It’s a stark difference from the emotional Boyd, who often got rattled early in big games and never rebounded. Watson has wowed the Clemson coaching staff so much that many wonder what might have happened had he started instead of coming off the bench in a 23-17 overtime loss to Florida State last month.
