Watson named finalist for Top QB, Top Player

Clemson sophomore quarterback Deshaun Watson was announced on Tuesday as a finalist for the Davey O'Brien Award that is given to the nation's best quarterback.

The other two QB finalists were TCU's Trevone Boykin and Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield.

Watson was also named as a Maxwell Award finalist on Tuesday with RB Derrick Henry and RB Christian McCaffrey as the award goes to the nation's top college football player.

Watson completed 24-of-35 passes for 343 yards and three touchdowns in Clemson’s 33-13 win over Wake Forest.

He has passed for 2944 yards with 26 touchdowns and ten interceptions (QBR of 85.8) this season. He also has rushed for 642 yards and six touchdowns on the ground.

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. Another superlative is that he had a nation's best 10.7 yards per pass attempt.
