Tajh Boyd
 
Let's talk about this kid. I don't know enough about him, and there are some smart draft minds on this website. I can't even find a damn highlight tape dedicated to him on Facebook.

I was impressed by him last night enough to get online and start watching all the highlights I could find on his games. The funny thing is he has shaky throwing mechanics like Geno does. I was impressed by his accuracy on the long ball, hitting his guy in stride, but question so far (haven't seen enough) his arm, and how much power he's got in it.

What do you guys think? What do you guys know about the kid?

His performance last night was tremendous and I'm willing to give him a look. But I do have a feeling once everyone steps a period of time away from the bowl game and review all of his game film, they may not see him as rosey as last night. Then again he could be coming into his own now?

Too short. Hitch in his throw. Not enough arm strength.

No thanks.

Like DeAndre Hopkins. He has/had some quality college weapons to throw to.

I don't think his game translates well to the next level. He flashes adequate arm strength but usually I watch him and think he doesn't have enough arm. Also he is not consistently accurate. Just based on a few games I have seen of him.

Oh good, its not just me.

He's a junior.

Also he has a sick group of WR's to throw to, among the best in college football.

Those "incredible throws" last night were more of "incredible catches" than anything. That last touchdown was a nice throw over the middle, however.

I need Como to weigh in on this before I know which way to go.

Arm strength alone is a deal breaker for me.

Mr. Flopnuts 01-01-2013 10:23 AM

Well, my initial thought was arm strength was an issue. Turns out I'm not alone in that thinking. He definitely has a hitch in this throw. The mechanics are wacky for sure.

That hitch means that his release is slow and his accuracy will be inconsistent. QBs, much like talented pitchers, must have a highly repeatable, compact motion.

That needs to be the biggest concern for any QB, IMO. From there, I want size (for durability) and arm strength (because this does get undervalued).

he's better than that piece of shit glennon...

So people aren't allowed to crucify Geno Smith for a piss-poor bowl game performance, but are allowed to glorify a guy out of nowhere for a good one?

If one game doesn't matter, then one game doesn't matter.
