Clemson was the 'it' team for a while last year and Boyd was one of the 'it' players. In his first year as a starter, he threw for 3,828 yards and 33 touchdowns while leading his team to the ACC title despite its having a roster littered with freshmen and sophomores at many key positions.
The Tigers play an exciting brand of offensive football under Gus Malzahn protege Chad Morris and it's reasonable to assume that Boyd will improve even more now that he has a year of starting experience under his belt. It helps that Boyd has perhaps the best receiver in college football to throw to in Sammy Watkins (though Watkins will miss the first two games due to suspension).
If Clemson can win another ACC championship and Boyd ups his production, he could garner some Heisman mention.
