Deshaun Watson gained 16 pounds of muscle this offseason


Entering the 2016 college football season, Clemson Tigers quarterback Deshaun Watson is widely regarded as one of the top signal-callers. The 2015 Heisman Trophy finalist led Clemson to an appearance in the College Football Playoff national championship game a year ago and he is hoping to repeat that success again this year.

Judging by the amount of work he has put in off the field so far, Watson and the Tigers are poised for success.

According to ESPN college football reporter Andrea Adelson, Watson has gained 16 pounds of muscle during the offseason. That takes his weight to 218 pounds, a far cry from the scrawny 182-pounder he was when he joined Dabo Swinney’s program.

With the added bulk, Watson should also be more appealing to NFL scouts.

Of course, Watson will have to prove that he can carry around the added weight while still playing at a high level. Last season, Watson recorded 4,104 passing yards, 35 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. On the ground, he added an additional 1,105 yards and 12 scores.

Watson is already a front-runner to win this year’s Heisman Trophy and go on to be the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, so it’s going to be fun to watch him put his talent on display throughout the season.
