 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  Clemson is once again led by a player who has been described as a generational talent in Trevor Lawrence, while the Tigers defense will have to deal with a dual-threat star in Miami's D'Eriq King. King, who is passing for 245 yards per game and rushing for 52 yards per game, has generated some Heisman buzz with his outstanding play over the first three weeks of the season. King currently has the third-best Heisman odds at 6-1, behind only Lawrence and Florida's Kyle Trask. Swinney believes it's easy to see why King is receiving so much attention nationally. "It's always a challenge to stop gifted, athletic quarterbacks," Swinney said. "When (King) takes off he's a running back, and that's the mindset he has. You better have your big boy pads on. He wants to throw it first. He's a very good thrower. He can throw the ball on the run. He can push the ball down the field. There's really nothing he can't do."

While there are some similarities between King and Jackson, there are also some differences. For one, King has accounted for seven touchdowns through three games. Jackson had 51 in 13 games in 2016, for an average of nearly four per game. "(King's) fast, but he's not Lamar Jackson fast. Lamar Jackson was probably the fastest guy on the field, either team," Swinney said. "But (King's) a very dangerous player. But they're different in some regards. But the similarities are they've got good people around them. They're well-coached, good schemes. And they challenge you because they can beat you with their mind, they can beat you with their arms, they can beat you with their legs. That's a three-phase quarterback." - The State
