CLEMSON – So here’s what I was thinking the morning of Feb. 26, a few days after getting back from the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, about Tajh Khiry Boyd.
He had two really bad games in 2013. He looked poor against No. 1 Florida State, the national champion (No. 1 scoring defense, No. 1 pass defense) and No. 4 South Carolina, the unbeatable host (No. 12 scoring defense, No. 12 pass defense.) He also had a bunch of really good games – clutch vs. Georgia and Ohio State, dominant vs. Syracuse and Virginia and Georgia Tech.
Meanwhile, you have Johnny Manziel, who really struggled against LSU (No. 21 scoring, No. 13 pass) and Missouri (No. 34 scoring, No. 109 pass. One oh nine!) Teddy Bridgewater fell off the radar when Louisville lost to UCF (though it’s hard to ignore 71 percent passing and a 31-4 TD-INT ratio) and Blake Bortles, I mean, he beat up Baylor. Congratulations. Big XII defenses are horrendous. Look it up.
I digress. Trashing the Big Three Quarterback Prospects of 2014 isn’t my point.
Here’s my point.
Tajh Boyd is who he is.
