Boyd is obviously a very talented player who played in an offensive system that does not help with NFL QB development. IMO, the issue is with the Clemson offense. A good reason why any decent HS QB will avoid Clemson as a school in the first place.

Default Re: Boyd Struggling at Sr Bowl

he has the arm talent, but its a question of can a transition from that corny crap clemson runs to an nfl offense. some people are really down on him like in some of the links in this thread, while ive seen a couple guys say they still like him.
itll be interesting to see how he does in the game. quarterback stocks are as unpredictable as the weather leading up to the draft.

I agree...I would be quite scared looking at the review of Tajh Boyd by NFL scouts. Honestly, I feel bad for him b/c once again Clemson and Dabo did what was best for Clemson and Dabo. I never had anything against him...he looked like a fool striking a heisman pose last year only to lose to our backup QB.

That is one of the reason I really respect Spurrier. He knows it hurts to lose underclassmen, but he wants them to get where they want to be (NFL) as opposed to getting himself where he wants to be (MNC).

There is no question Spurrier cares about his players more than do the Clemson coaches. It is always surprising that those clowns can talk guys like Boyd, Beaseley, Spiller, etc., into returning for their senior seasons.

Besides the system, it is clear that the Clemson offensive coaches lack the ability to coach up QBs to NFL caliber even when they are blessed with players as enourmously talented at Tajh. Tajh, but for his unusually poor and frightened performances against the Gamecock D, might have been invited to NY for the Heisman selection ceremony.

Honestly, the scouts don't put as much stock into the actual Senior Bowl game as they do the practices leading up to it. That is when they get to watch them up close and personal.

His numbers at Clemson will mean something to some NFL GM. I think he'll get drafted, especially if he's going to the combine and does well.

They have an early enrollee on campus that's the top rated QB in the country, Deshaun Watson, so they aren't struggling in the recruiting dept at QB. The thing is, this kid's the real deal compared to Boyd, so it'll be interesting to see how well he develops under Morris.

Vince and Tajh were both good college QB's. Vince stunk it up in the NFL, and Tajh probably will stink it up in the NFL.

Good enough comparison?

There are much better ones. Young was 31-19 as a starter and had OK stats. Probably would've been fine if he didn't piss Fisher off and get all suicidal.

Quote:
The Senior Bowl is a chance for a lot of college football players to shine one last time in an actual game, and for Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd, the Senior Bowl could mean moving up as high as a second round draft pick. NFL.com draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah believes that this is possible, but reports out of Mobile seem to indicate that Boyd is having a rough week.

While Jeremiah believes that Boyd could lock himself in as a second-round pick with a solid Senior Bowl performance, the Clemson quarterback is drawing comparisons to Troy Smith. That’s not a bad thing in that Smith won the Heisman Trophy at Ohio State back in 2006, but that’s where the positivity in the comparison ends.

“I was in Baltimore when we drafted Troy Smith,” Jeremiah said. “I think (Boyd) is a little more accurate than Troy was. Troy, even when things were clean at times, could get erratic. When you see Tajh Boyd with time, and he can be in rhythm, he can sling it.”

Jeremiah’s comparisons of Boyd to Smith is both positive and negative. Smith was drafted by the Ravens and even played in some games, but he was never any good and is no longer playing professional football in American, opting for the CFL instead.

Boyd is sounding like Troy Smith 2.0, which may not be the worst thing in the world but it hardly means that Boyd will be the next Russell Wilson, something some were predicting before the Senior Bowl. He’s still a dark horse candidate to become a solid NFL quarterback, but the Troy Smith comparison isn’t all that positive in the end.

Sounds good, but what level of competition did he go up against in HS? If you want to put up gaudy stats in defensively inferior conference then he went to the right place.

Tajh has like 57 school and conference records, and was 33-8 as a starter. Just saying dude, there are a lot of similarities.

I'm talking about Young in the NFL. He wasn't that bad. He had other issues (non-football).

Obviously, this isn't a huge deal, so I'm gonna stop hijacking the thread now.

Rough start for Boyd
4:17 p.m. ET: An inauspicious Senior Bowl debut drive for Clemson QB Tajh Boyd. His first pass was tipped, and he later was picked off when he floated a pass to speedy Wyoming WR Robert Herron, who had torched his man off the line, and LSU S Craig Loston picked it off. It was an easy pick for Loston.

Boyd and the rest of the North quarterbacks were inconsistent during practices, and Boyd did not get off to a good start.

Boyd continues to get exposed when playing against real competition, who really cares about him setting ACC records look at the dismal preformances against quality teams.
