Boyd Struggling at Sr Bowl
 
Scouts say none of the QBs on the North squad have been impressive. Boyd has separated himself from others though, by being exceptionally bad.

Move to smack if necessary.

Tajh Boyd
QB Clemson

Mon: Ugly. Just all over the place with his throws and makes receivers work too hard to catch the ball.

Tues: Much improved as many of his throws were on or close to the mark. Still had a few wayward passes and made receivers work too hard. Last day pick IMO.

Wed: Had a few nice throws but for the most part not good. Threw deep outs to uncovered receivers yet constantly had pass catchers leaving their feet, adjusting backwards or diving to catch his errant passes. Sidewinder which makes the situation even worse.

We have seen plenty of players help their draft stock over the past few years, but the week is not going as planned for Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd.

Boyd has been erratic with his accuracy and has drawn plenty of criticism for his poor performance during practices, but things got worse when a comment from a Green Bay Packers scout came to light.

According to NFL Draft insider Tony Pauline, the Packers scout said ”based on what I’m seeing Tajh Boyd is not draftable.”

Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd thrived during his four years in the Atlantic Coast Conference, breaking the conference record with 102 career touchdown passes.

Boyd passed for 3,851 yards, 34 touchdowns and 11 interceptions last season and was named all-conference for the third time.

But Boyd still has a lot to prove at the Senior Bowl. He struggled with his accuracy and timing Monday and Tuesday, forcing his receivers to adjust their patterns to secure his errant throws.

Hes inaccurate. What a shocker. Do people forget how he played vs us and FSU?

Thanks. Didn't notice it when I checked.

While I don't think Tajh is a great QB, I will add the caveat that it is tough to get timing down in a short period of time with new wideouts.

That being said, a scout whose profession is to evaluate this kind of thing/circumstances and says what the GB scout said... well, hard to defend that.

I'm sure they are asking Boyd to play from under center and do dropbacks, which highlights a QBs fundamentals. Boyd played in a shotgun system that hides QB fundamentals. It is t shocking that he is struggling so much.

Can you imagine the taternet meltdown if Shaw is drafted above Boyd.

Really sad how much money Dildo cost this kid. Once a late first early 2nd to possibly not getting drafted. I have met this kid a few times and I really like him as a person. Hate to see things work out this way for him. Maybe he can regroup and play better in the actual game. This is where you can see Clemson's lack of QB development.

Did you read the links? He apparently can fall pretty far.

It was bound to happen sooner or later with the way dabo does things. He won't be the last either

I think Shaw will go higher. He has gotten better each year. Better game manager.

It is interesting that I have had several dedicated SC fans say if TB would have played at SC (and survived Spur 101) he would be a better QB. I have to agree and say he would be a more consistent QB. I think he has been good for CU and is a nice young man, but he made some bad decisions in the OB you don't expect from a 5th year senior.

Not intended as smack at all, but I think he's been one of the more overrated QBs in the last 5 years or so. None of this is surprising.

higher # of passes thrown in games=inflated stats, which is all that some people pay attention to.

add to it that offenses have evolved faster than defenses and you have some QBs who have really great stats but who are putting up those stats throwing to receivers who are wide open (I never watch a ton of Clemson but I don't ever really remember seeing Boyd completing a ton a tough throws into tight windows, a lot of the ones I remember seeing him complete are to receivers that don't have defenders within 5 yards of them).

plus a lot of the new rules/emphasis really favor offenses.

I discovered the source of Boyd's struggles.

Clowney was at the Senior Bowl, sitting in the stands, observing the practices. Boyd was afraid he was going to have flashbacks and charge on the field after him.
