He'll get drafted since QB's are hard to come by. But I never thought he would play at the next level and stand by that. He's a typical one trick pony QB who put up decent numbers in a weak college conference.

Exactly. He ran an offense that inflates QB stats since basically their base run play is a WR screen. Easily 1/4 of his passing yards were these screens and they probably raised his completion percentage by 10 points.

Boyd measured shorter than expected, coming in at 6-0 7/8" Well below the Mendoza line.

He's also earned himself a nickname among scouts, Troy Smith 2.0. Ouch...

I think they made him take his earrings out and it messed with his equilibrium.

Where did that nickname info come from? I need a link. That's rich if its true. Except, is that fair to bring Troy down like that? At least he won a Heisman.

I'd be surprised if it wasn't much more than that. At the end of their game vs. Ohio State they showed a stat for the game that something like 300 of his 350 yards passing were after the catch. NFL QBs better be able to throw accurately down the field into narrow windows, which isn't a big part of The Chad's offense.

This is true. Morris' offense works great when your WR's are way more athletic than the CB's. Tajh is not gonna be able to go to the combine and ask to run bubble screen's all day.

My prediction...to the Oakland Raiders in 4th or 6th round.

Funny thing is, he might be there with Clowney.

I personally don't hold anything against any qb who isn't good at the next level..i appreciate the talent they displayed on Saturdays.

guys like tajh, tebow, troy smith, eric zier, steve taneyhill, and on and on were great college qbs..it is very hard to make the transition to the nfl. I am not about to mock them for not being among the elite.

same thing happens in hs. tons of great hs qbs don't do squat on the college level. it doesn't diminish what they accomplished, though.

After their Jamarcus Russell experience, you'd think they would think twice before selecting another QB with accuracy and weight-control issues, but hey, its the Raiders.

Unlike Jamarcus, Tajh bettered his weight issue. I doubt that'll be a problem again.

I think it was just how bad the ACC defenses are not so much the bubble screen. I watched a good bit of tater football for most of my life living in the upstate. (I have to discuss football with idiot friends of mine).

It did not matter what kind of pass he was throwing in the ACC. They did not get challenged at any place on the field. Guys were open without anyone within 10 yards of the wr all the time.

I am somewhat surprised by all of this, but it is true that his WR's at Clemson did inflate his stat's and make him appear to be all-world at QB. That being said, Tajh does have a very quick release, cannon shot of an arm, and I'm pretty confident someone will take a chance on him as a development project.

Starting reading your post and was going to say the same thing

That's why I hope Clowney doesn't go there.
