(NEW YORK) — After a record-setting performance in the Orange Bowl, Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins is declaring for the 2014 NFL Draft, reports ESPN.
Since stepping onto the field for Clemson, Watkins has been not only one of the best players on his team, but in the entire nation. He caught 27 touchdowns in his three seasons at Clemson. In his junior year alone, Watkins caught 101 passes for 1,464 yards and twelve touchdowns.
It is hard to deny Watkins’ talent, especially after his Orange Bowl performance. He finished the game with 16 catches for 227 yards and two touchdowns.
Scouts Inc. have rated Watkins as the highest rated wide receiver in the 2014 Draft.
Fellow Clemson wide receiver Martavis Bryant has also declared for the draft after catching 42 passes for 828 yards this season.
Quarterback Tajh Boyd will also enter the 2014 Draft after recently completing his senior season.
