CFB Analyst Who Watched Deshaun Watson This Past Week Says Clemson QB Will Be Heisman Trophy Finalist

Clemson fans' biggest concern heading into the 2015 college football season is probably the health of quarterback Deshaun Watson. The dual-threat sophomore tore his ACL at the end of the 2014 season. 

According to one college football analyst who watched recently watched Watson, you don't have anything to worry about, Tigers' fans. 

Bleacher Report's Michael Felder was at the Elite 11 Finals in Oregon this past week. Watson was a college counselor and went through drills. According to Felder, he looked very, very good. 

“Seeing him go through all the drills, in shape to go through all the high-pressure drills where they’re running and they’re moving – that’s a big plus for Tiger fans,” said Felder. “This is a kid that’s going to be in New York City with an opportunity to win a Heisman trophy. I’m saying it right now in July.

“With Deshaun Watson at the quarterback spot, not only does Clemson have a guy that’s going to be in contention for a Heisman Trophy, but I think they’re the favorite to win the ACC.”
