    NY Jets 6th Round Pick (#213): QB - Taji Boyd - Clemson-SIGNED


    TAJH BOYD, QB
    SCHOOL: CLEMSON | CONFERENCE: ACC
    COLLEGE EXPERIENCE: SENIOR | HOMETOWN: HAMPTON, VA
    HEIGHT/WEIGHT: 6-1 / 222 LBS.

    STRENGTHS: Sets quickly. Can sling it when he’s in rhythm and has a clean pocket. Good zip short-to-intermediate. Can launch deep throws 60-plus yards and flashes touch to drop it in the bucket. Shows composure in the face of a blitz and is willing to take a hit to make a play. Makes plays with his feet, be it rolling the pocket, extending plays or throwing on the move (left or right). Slippery and elusive to escape the rush and is a threat to tuck and dash for the sticks. Good straight-line speed and run strength for a quarterback (will lower his shoulder on defenders). Team captain and three-year starter. Terrific football character. Is universally liked and will be a godsend for the P.R. staff.

    WEAKNESSES: Does not look the part -- lacks ideal height and weight tends to fluctuate (nicknamed “Fat Boy” by teammates). Throws with a low elbow and sails downfield throws -- can improve his accuracy. Inconsistent decision-making. Did not take snaps under center in a pistol, read-option offense and production was inflated by NFL-caliber skill players. Will require patience adapting to pro-style passing. Needs to quicken his eyes and expand his field vision. Does not always see the overhanging safety or short-hole defender. Tends to read first and second options before fleeing the pocket. Durability could be a concern given his style -- needs to learn to slide.

    BOTTOM LINE: Difficult to prepare for and difficult to block, Boyd is a short, athletic, strong-armed quarterback with Wildcat value and starter potential in a vertical-power system, though he is the type you look to replace. The success of Russell Wilson likely helps Boyd’s cause, but he is not as polished and might be better suited as a backup.

    We knew we were getting a QB at some point, this is a good pick. Michael Sam or Antonio Richardson anyone?

    Ravens traded back into the draft just now, thought it was for Michael Sam, but took Michael Campanaro, a WR the Jets had eyes on.

    I like this pick, he was suppose to be a first rounder before the season started. Lets get him some garcinia cambogia and a treadmill.

    Although I would have loved to have a Jets jersey that said Savage on the back, I've mocked him to the Jets several times and was hoping for him.

    Goodbye MSimms.

    I am hearing mixed opinions on his arm strength. I thought he had a cannon and had one of the top arms. He has more velocity than Bortles, Manziel, and Carr right?

    Underrated draft pick by us... Should Geno not pan out, we can groom this kid. He's got the talent
