There’s no question that Tajh Boyd has to make the all-time Clemson football team as a quarterback. Boyd finished his Clemson career holding just about every passing record in school history, including passing yards and touchdowns. Boyd also proved he was a winner during his time as a Tiger as he finished tied with Rodney Williams as the all-time winning quarterback in school history. What I loved about Tajh Boyd was his durability and arm strength. Sometimes, he made some bad decisions, but there was doubting his arm strength and ability to take big hits and get up.
Charlie Whitehurst/Deshaun Watson
I couldn’t choose between these two. Obviously, Deshaun Watson has to be on the team. To be honest, he would be the starter if these three quarterbacks played on the same team because he has the perfect blend of athleticism and passing ability. Just a week ago, he finished third on the Heisman vote, which is the highest any Clemson football player has ever been voted in the history of the program, but how can leave Charlie Whitehurst off the team?
Whitehurst did not have near the amount of talent and athletes that Watson or Boyd had, but still ended up holding most of the school passing records until Boyd came along. Charlie Whitehurst had a great arm and was an extremely talented passer and game manager. These three together would make for an extremely deep and diverse quarterback position for Clemson football.
