This five-star recruit was one of the biggest reasons Clemson won the ACC title one season after finishing 6-7. Watkins has caught 77 passes for 1,153 yards and 11 touchdowns. He scored two touchdowns each in back-to-back games against Auburn and Florida State. He caught two touchdown passes and also scored on an 89-yard kickoff return to help Clemson erase an 18-point deficit in a 56-45 victory over Maryland. How much does Watkins mean to Clemson? In the one game he missed with a shoulder injury, Clemson lost 37-13 to North Carolina State and didn't score a touchdown until 1:22 remained in the game.
