On Monday, a Green Bay Packers scout reportedly told a number of people attending the Senior Bowl practice that “based on what I’m seeing Tajh Boyd is not draftable.”
Tony Pauline reports that the Packers scout is not alone with his belief that, based on what they’ve seem thus far from the Clemson quarterback, he is undraftable.
According to Pauline, another league insider informed him that they would not use a draft pick on the quarterback.
Boyd finished off his collegiate career on a high not beating Ohio State in Orange Bowl while completing 31 of 40 passes for 378 passing yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions.
The reviews of Boyd’s performance during Senior Bowl practices have been pretty bad as he’s struggled with accuracy throughout the week. Despite the concerns, opinions are still mixed on his NFL potential.
Daniel Jeremiah of the NFL Network mentioned on Tuesday that Boyd could still end up being a second-round pick with a strong showing during the Senior Bowl.
“One thing that I struggle with is when he needs to shuffle, reset his feet, when he gets pushed off his mark, decision making and accuracy takes a tumble,” Jeremiah said on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Mike Mayock mentioned that Boyd “has to work hard to get into the second round” and even compared him to former Ohio State QB Troy Smith.
Jeremiah was actually with the Ravens when the elected to draft Smith and he believes Boyd is “a little more accurate than Troy.”
At this point in the draft process, it’s really hard to trust the opinions of unnamed sources, but there are some obvious concerns regarding Boyd that he will need to work on improving in the coming months if he hopes to be drafted in the first few rounds.
