He actually did, from an x's and o's standpoint, and his limitations tended to come out in big games.

Give Tajh time, especially against a defense that didn't have the DB's to run with our wideouts (which was most of them, excepting FSU), and he could make a defense look helpless. Tajh has a live arm and throws the deep ball very well, and give him Watkins and Bryant to throw to and it gets kind of unfair if you don't match up. Add to that, he can run like a very good RB - which defenses couldn't usually account for, since they were so worried about our wideouts - and so he could definitely hurt you - decisively - two different ways.

Where he was limited was in his ability to go through a progression - he usually predetermined where he was going with the ball prior to the snap, and locked onto and stared down one particular guy (usually Sammy) - and in his ability to read the blitz and adjust to the hot read. He also tended to sense pressure when there was none (especially when he was getting hit) and tended to not step up into the pocket, which means he often rolled right into pressure. His short-to-medium balls were also often not as accurate as you'd like, particularly in regards to body placement. All this meant Clemson went 3-and-out a lot. When the deep ball wasn't there, and when teams were successfully stuffing Tajh from scampering, he often struggled with those move-the-chains throws, especially on the intermediate routes.

These flaws are what ultimately knocked him so far down everybody's draft board. He really was never a "polished" QB.

All that said, his running ability, and ability to throw the deep ball, gave him a certain ability to break scoreboards...especially with the receivers he had, and which the next guy will not have....
