being picked as the 2015 ACC Preseason Player of the Year.

"He's as advertised," Swinney said. "Y'all are picking him to be the pre-season Player of the Year and all that stuff based on what y'all have seen. He's beyond what you've seen. He is a great football player, there's no question about that. It's pretty easy to watch this kid play and say, Wow, this is a rare guy.

Swinney said that Watson is just as special person as he is a football player.

"But what you don't know, he's only been in college a year," Swinney said. "What you don't really know is who he is. I mean, this is a special person. He really is. He's a great leader. He's one of the smartest players I've ever been around. I haven't been around many seniors with the football IQ that this man possesses right now as a true sophomore. Really excited about his future, his potential. Can't wait to get him back out on the field. When he's out there, we got a chance each and every play for something good to happen. That's a good thing."
