There's always been a QB who shoots up draft boards following the season and gets landed in the 1st round. Sometimes these guys are great. Sometimes they're not. Lately a lot of them have panned out alright (Flacco, Ponder, Tannehill).
This year look out for Tajh Boyd declaring early. He's kind of a streaky player, and at the end of last year he sort of seized up for some unknown reason following Clemson's 8-0 start.
He's looking VERY good this year. He's become far more consistent in the pocket and is making better decisions. If he declares early, he'll be that last QB people are looking for to round out the first round-calibre guys.
I imagine he'll be a player that Planeteers spit on. They'll say he shits his pants too often, and that he's not the answer. We shouldn't waste a 1st rounder on one of those QBs who gets drafted just because he's a QB.
Wrong. If Tajh Boyd declares and we miss out on Geno Smith or Matt Barkley, Tajh Boyd is the guy we need to go after. We need to TRADE UP to get him. And if he fails, then we try again a couple years from now. Until we fix this ****ing QB problem once and for goddamned all.
