Of the many differences between Deshaun Watson and Cole Stoudt one that sticks out to me is third down conversion percentage. While Watson’s is over 50%, Stoudt’s is hovering around 35%.
Below are the detailed numbers for Clemson while Stoudt is on the field. This number is slightly different than those listed in the quarterback drive chart for Stoudt because that chart includes only drives in which Stoudt began and ended the drives and this one includes all third downs Stoudt was on the field for. Remember, Stoudt took over drives that Watson began three times this season – Louisville, Georgia Tech and South Carolina.
