Sammy Watkins Showcases Dynamic Playmaking Ability with Big Performance vs. Syracuse
If there was any doubt Clemson Tigers' wide receiver Sammy Watkins was the best receiver in the country entering Saturday's game against the Syracuse Orange, he erased it immediately.
Watkins had yet another fine outing against the Orange, catching four passes for 126 yards and one touchdown, which happens to be one of the prettiest fans will see all year as quarterback Tajh Boyd found him from 91 yards away:
The performance is business as usual for Watkins, who now has surpassed the 100-yard mark three times in five attempts this season.
Watkins went off for 127 yards and a score in the team's opener against Georgia, but showed he is more than just a deep threat by reeling in 10 receptions for just 96 yards against North Carolina State a few weeks later.
Call this year a return to form for Watkins, who posted over 1,200 yards and 12 scores in 2011 before notching just 708 and three last year. His electric performance against Syracuse on just four catches further solidifies the notion he will be an early pick in the upcoming 2014 NFL draft.
The scary part is Watkins seven games to tear through the opposition while polishing his professional resume. With a Heisman candidate in Boyd at quarterback, the sky is the limit for Watkins the rest of the way.
