Dabo Swinney on Deshaun Watson: Probably his last year

The Clemson Tigers have a great quarterback in Deshaun Watson. He was second in the 2015 Heisman Trophy voting and will likely be a favorite for the award going into the 2016 season.

With how good Watson is, it is pretty clear that he likely will not be sticking around after this season. Head coach Dabo Swinney talked about the possibility of him leaving for the NFL and he admitted that is probably going to happen.

Dabo Swinney on Deshaun Watson's NFL prospects: "His game translates wherever. You want to play football on Mars, it'll translate there."

The Tigers went 14-1, won the ACC championship, and advanced to the College Football Playoff national championship game where they fell just short of beating the Alabama Crimson Tide. During the season, Deshaun Watson threw for 4,109 yards and 35 touchdowns, while rushing for 1,105 yards and 12 touchdowns.

I think it is pretty safe to say that Watson is going to be a big part of the Tigers’ success this year. After the 2016 season, he is likely going to be a big part of some NFL team’s success as well.

The Tigers open the season on September 3 when they travel to Auburn.
