He hasn't left for the NFL yet, he is just testing the….

Not a very bright 2013 for Offense?


Or stay one more year with a matured line (you won't get hit

as often [unless if you keep running so much]) and your star receivers returning and be a legitimate Heisman contender?

No you wouldn't. You would take the money if it was offered. I'd love him to come back. But. If he was my son and they offered him big bucks. I'd say go.


Fame over fortune?

Tajh could make more money by waiting a year.

A draft projection could help make the decision. This year vs next year.


He didn't state that he was leaving, he just submitted...

the paper work to get an assessment from NFL scouts. A lot of junior do that and don't leave. If he wasn't testing the NFL waters, then he wouldn't being doing what he needs to do to be the best player he can be.

What's Boyd family situation? Poor as Christmas Turkey or middle class?

He should stay another year. ALL QB's benefit from 4 years of college. His height will hurt him


Let him go, wish him the very best. Chad Kelly will be

Better in my own opinion, but still props to Boyd!!

to say let him go? If Chad Kelly lives up to half his hype he'll be pretty good also, but Tajh as a senior is just scary for defenses

How could you possibly say that when you have never seen Kelly play a single down of real college FB. We hope he will be as good as Tajh.


Re: Let him go, wish him the very best. Chad Kelly will be


Posted: Nov 28, 2012 6:26 PM
 

The same Chad Kelly that was puking in the street Monday night? I'd rather not have Steven Garcia Jr at QB


CFL?


Posted: Nov 28, 2012 5:32 PM
 

Did that say Cfl or did I miss read something? I think he is a very good qb but he better start hitting a gym that Joey Batson isn't affiliated with!


Drop the Batson stuff, Boyd lost weight and got faster….

this season he avoided many would be tackles, that would have been tackles last season.

aren't a guaranteed first rounder, as an underclassmen, don't mess with it. It sounds like they are leaving all rounds on the table. Either way, good luck to him.. If he is back, he is back, if he isn't, he isn't. I think his departure will have a direct impact on what Nuk decides.

could go in is not a concern. Hope he comes back because I think what he does will have heavy influence on what Nuk decides. Nuk is not coming back to having a new QB throwing to him next year, and not a guy like Tahj that he has great chemistry developed with. Just my opinion.


Dabo is wrong about that


Posted: Nov 28, 2012 7:41 PM
 

There is a significant amount of money to be made in second round.

Nuk is likely a second rounder this year......and I do not think he can improve his draft status next year......he has played well this year

We do Chicken right...it's not just for frying anymore!


Right now 5th round grade at best.

I'm kinda out of the loop on the back up situation. Is it


Posted: Nov 28, 2012 6:00 PM
 

fair to assume Cole will never be our starting QB, barring injury? I think Walt or somebody yesterday when speaking of the future of Clemson QB's mentioned Chad and some other guy I wasn't even familiar with....no Cole.


Terrible assessment. 3rd round at worst, likely 2nd.***

It seems like only yesterday...


Posted: Nov 28, 2012 5:49 PM
 

That lots of fans were saying how it didn't look he was going to make the transition and there were a few moments that made it look like that was a correct assessment.

Now, he's clearly the leader of the team, owns all sorts of records and has made us all even prouder to be Tigers.

Stay and we'll all do the Happy Dance. Go and we'll all be pulling for you.

have fun riding the pine........if making that money one year earlier is worth it to you, by all means. Abandon the team the way you did Saturday night with your little superman BS.


Re: Love ya Tajh, but you're not NFL material yet bro.........

He's not abandoning anybody and he didn't Saturday night. It's really hard to throw touchdown passes when you are flat on your back or running for your life all night.

best of luck to Tajh!...i really wish he would stay for another season but with him being a redshirt jr im guessing he will have his degree locked up and who are we to tell him not to take the money?


Re: Love ya Tajh, but you're not NFL material yet bro.........


Posted: Nov 28, 2012 10:31 PM
 

Fans wanting him to stay.. If he was my son and had his degree.. what is the point of you staying? You fulfilled your 4 years.. got your degree and if you can get drafted.. GO HAVE FUN kid..

Re: Front Page Story: Boyd will submit paperwork and consider NFL

This is a fairly weak draft for quarterbacks, particularly compared to last year's bonanza. Even if Boyd doesn't have the traditional height for the NFL, he's a heck of a talent and it may not matter if he can top this season's productivity next year.
I believe Dabo's central point, and it worked for CJ, is that the money difference between the first round and the second is more than sufficient reason to stay in school another year. Although the NFL has cut back on the monster contracts for the top 3 picks, there is still significant room for guaranteed cash up top. For instance, RGIII contract is worth about 7 times that of Russell Wilson. Unless he has an 8-touchdown game against Georgia in the *Peach* Bowl, the best thing for him is to not hire an agent and wait until all the other underclassman quarterbacks have decided one way or another. Maybe if he comes back we can call Jacksonville, Oakland and Kansas City's race to the bottom in 2013 "Dodge For Tajh."
Whatever the case, I hope he keeps his wits about him for the bowl game. And for Pete's sake that he doesn't get drafted by New England or Dallas, I want to be able to cheer for him on Sundays.


Boyd should stay. Think his teammates, coaches, and Morris'


Posted: Nov 29, 2012 1:28 AM
 

system is a huge part of his success. Let's be realistic. Remember what he and the offense looked like in 2010? He's developed, but he is surrounded by alot of talent now too.


In last 6 years, ZERO sub-6'2" junior QBs have been drafted.


Posted: Nov 29, 2012 2:16 AM
 

There are a few rare sub-6'2" QBs that make it in the NFL, but (right or wrong) the NFL rarely DRAFTS them.

Over the last 6 years and 74 QBs drafted, only 4 QBs under 6’2" were drafted to play QB, and NONE of them were juniors. (Though 2 more senior QBs were drafted to play WR because they were too "short".) Those 4 QBs had outstanding careers:
* 6'1" Colt McCoy, then the all-time-winningest college QB (3rd round).
* 6’ Heisman winner, Troy Smith (5th round).
* 6'1" Tyrod Taylor (6th round).
* 5’11” Russell Wilson (5th round).

I could see Boyd going as a late-round pick after his SENIOR season, if he has a great senior year.

QBs often shrink an inch when the NFL measures them so in a few years we'll find out if Boyd is really 6'1".


This is the kind of cold, hard, analysis that Boyd needs to


Posted: Nov 29, 2012 10:38 AM
 

hear from the coaches.

People in the know, other than agents, need to sit down with him and go over these kinds of details. They also need to help him review the needs of each pro team, and see what their needs are and then evaluate those needs based on what might be available. The NFL draft advisory board should be able to help him with that. I always thought Coach Bowden did a good job when going over this with his players. I hope Dabo does just was well!

That said if the info points to a clear shot at being a second round pick, then I would say go for it. I love Tajh, and want him back. But that is based on my want for Clemson to do good. If he can get a second round pick I think that is about the best he can hope for. And with that round selection I think he can still get some signing bonus money. Not big money, but enough to set yourself up with a modest monthly stipen that will supplement any other career for the rest of his life.

Given that, I think that is the best he can hope for. Even if we win a national championship and he gets a heisman, I dont see him getting into the 1st round. For the reason mentioned above. But eitherway I wish him nothing but the best. Also, I would offer this advice. Stay away from the Carolina Panthers. We are a train wreck. And even though we have Newton as our QB, it is only a matter of time before he goes down with an injury, and Tajh will be put behind a line that is awful!


Go Tigers


Barkley is BARELY taller than Tajh, and less talented, too.***

He's not going anywhere.

Ballgame. Sorry coots.


I hope this doesnt happen but can you imagine


Posted: Nov 29, 2012 12:01 PM
 

Losing Chad for another HC job, and losing Boyd and Nuk to the NFL, and losing Brandon Ford and AE to graduation?? Yikes. That's why I never understood everybody pointing to next year as the year. THIS was the year we had to make hay. Lose too much after this season.

I hope Boyd, Nuk, and Chad come back for one last great season, but I certainly understand if they dont. The money is too much to pass up.


"Wait till next year" has become our mantra***

It certainly has, as well as the rest of the country with a decent football program... I am sure the fans and players at A&M are already licking their chops about next year, as are Notre Dame, LSU, Bama, etc etc.. That mantra is valid, 2013 here we come!!

Go Tigers!!


I think he'll stay


Posted: Nov 29, 2012 12:34 PM
 

Leave to tge NFL and start slow, or comeback next year with a matured team that will have a better shot at the title (or at least a BCS bowl) than we have had in ge past 20 years, an all american, a frontrunner for the Heisman.. And so much more, PLUS a much more promising NFL career after graduating.
