I really don't know where to begin with Boyd without saying he has exceeded expectations as a collegiate QB in his first year as a starter. I'm quite sure if Lane Kiffin, out of all people who happens to be the "best" talent evaluator on the collegiate, not think he could play QB so did others. As of right now Tajh is currently leading his Clemson Tigers to a 8-0 record with Heisman considerations to back up his performance thus far this season. This past week, he threw for 367yds on 5TD passes to 5 different WRs. Boyd is a legit prospect in my eyes, but due to his massive size & being undersized at 6'1'' 230, I think that would be a knock on him to go no higher then Round 2-3 if he were to come out in 2013. Me personally I believe he should be rated in the Top 3 as a QB prospect of the 2013 class. I say he is a QB although he may draw Michael Robinson comparisons from scouts come draft time. If many of you don't know much about Boyd other than what he has displayed this year, he is a winner who knows how to run a team which he did well on the HS level winning 2 State titles.

Michael Robinson wishes he was Tajh Boyd. Robinson wasn't ever as impressive as Boyd's been this year. I think you'll more likely see Garrard comparisons than comparisons to guys who were converted runningbacks all the way coming out like Robinson. Boyd is without doubt a QB (and a pocket passer for that matter unlike Robinson who was a better runner than passer).

Not knocking the thread at all but this is too funny not to point out (I'm also curious what you meant to say):

Boyd is a legit prospect in my eyes, but due to his massive size & being undersized at 6'1'' 230, I think that would be a knock on him to go no higher then Round 2-3 if he were to come out in 2013.

Dude....let it go, and stop exaggerating while you're at it. Yeah, a player from Virgina is doing good, congrats, I think we all get it now.

Tajh Boyd is a legitimate quarterback prospect, Michael Robinson never was.

Reminds me a little bit of Rex Grossman coming out of Florida (yes, I just compared him to a white QB)

dude he hasn't even posted the obnoxious 757 text block image yet, we can't expect him to stop this soon

Meh. Color me unimpressed on his pro prospects at this point. I'm not overly impressed with his deep ball or velocity. Seems like his receivers bail him out a bit.

You managed to take your shot at Lane Kiffin, shout out a Virginia player, call him undersized and massive, and made a Michael Robinson comparison in one thread. Although it wasted my time, it was impressive. I think you checked everything off there.

Massive size, and undersized huh? Impressive.

His height is a knock on him, before even watching him play. I'm a fan though.

Always good to keep an eye out on the future. Thanks for the heads-up.

Good system QB in college, fringe NFL prospect.

I like Tajh Boyd as well, what is there not to like about him....


But for the 2013 draft....no way he is top 3 QB talent. Having to compete against these types of prospects, good luck. A lot of talent here, and one could completely argue and take any if not all of these quarterbacks above Boyd if they all went out in the same draft.

Tyler Wilson
Brock Osweiler
Mike Glennon
Tyler Bray
Aaron Murray
Danny O'Brien
Geno Smith
EJ Manuel



Boyd, again I like him a lot, but he has arguably one of the best receiving cores to throw to in the country. Be interesting to see how he develops, and who knows maybe the likes of Glennon, O'Brien or Bray will be total busts in that amount of time, but I doubt it.

Does Mike Glennon have another year of eligibility??
He was my super sleeper QB pick of the 2012 draft!!lol

Yes. He's a redshirt Junior.

Glennon needs to show improvement and growth next season. He has been a mild disappointment IMO. I was expecting him to really light it up. Not saying he has been terrible in his first year as a starter but was just expecting more.

Is he on the map after a pretty impressive performance against a tough LSU defense considering how muddled the rest of this QB class is shaping out to be?

He can push it downfield and he's an absolute gamer with a little McNabb in him. Similarly, I don't love his accuracy. However, he's improved every year, specifically in that department with a 67% comp. pct. this season.

I don't think his height (6-1) is an issue at all.

Which round are we taking Boyd?

If it was my choice it would be the 3rd. But I wouldnt be surprised if it had to be the 2nd, most likely by trading up.

With the weak QB crop, he may come out. Not saying it's a good idea, just sayin'.

Boyd received a 3rd round grade from the advisory board and he remains undecided, but leaning towards staying for his senior season.

Smart move. I think many are trying to find a clear cut top QB in this class. Honestly, they're all a bunch of unknowns.

Why would the be a laughing matter if they got him in the 3rd? I'd laugh if we drafted him 4th overall but cmon now.

Because I think you guys deserve somebody better. The McNabb & Vicks of the world still haven't gotten Philly the championship they crave and I just don't think Boyd will either.

McNabb was a gamer for us. I can't complain about the time he spent here while he was in his prime. Vick in 2010 looked like the real deal but he is not a 100 million dollar man by any means. I wouldn't mind taking Boyd if it were in the 3rd or so as a guy to try and develop but by no means am I expecting him to come in from day 1 and be be the guy to take us to the next level. I dont see anyone in this class with that potential...if I were to pick one who I think will produce the most it'd be Wilson.

If I was Philly I would be drafting O-Line and secondary help before anything else.

Foles certainly played well last season considering that team gave up on Reid. I think he may have a future especially with a coach that utilizes the running game

SickwithIt1010
01-05-2013, 05:30 PM
I am really not sold at all on Foles. Maybe for a year or so while we find another guy, but I could also see them bringing in a guy like Alex Smith as well. OLine and Safety are the two biggest needs and my preference would be to go with Joeckel if he is available otherwise move down.

a new coach with a long term deal might want to build the thing from the ground up. As you say,get the offensive tackle this year and then grab that better QB in 2014. (you did imply that right?)

Depends on how Foles plays. I think he was pretty good all things considered. Philly was a sinking ship from week 6 on.

The Eagles need to get Jon Gruden on the line and make him the highest paid coach (or something around that). He's the best offensive coach they are going to get and they need someone to fit Nick Foles' passing abilities.

The problem is, that Gruden will come in, decide he can't work with Foles, then go out and sign or trade for... Fitzpatrick, Palmer, or Matt Flynn (nah, too young)...make that Alex Smith, proclaim him one of the best QBs in the league and his mastermind on the field, then fill the roster full of cast-off vets from other teams while the young talent sits on the bench wasting away. Good game day planner, horrible evaluator of talent.
