Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd doesn’t sound like a quarterback that is seriously considering bolting early for the NFL draft. Boyd confirmed he has submitted paper work to the NFL to get a projection on where he might go in the April draft, but said he isn’t going to spend any time thinking about the decision until after the bowl game.
Tigers offensive coordinator Chad Morris also doesn’t sound like a coach expecting to lose his two year starter at quarterback after the bowl game. He is of the opinion Boyd’s best NFL prospects could be further down the road than the upcoming April draft and his opinion will count when Boyd starts pondering his future.
“I think he’s a first-round guy, I don’t know if it’s this year,” Morris said. I think it’d be next year,” “I think he could definitely improve his draft stock. Those are things he’s got to talk to his family about, that he and I will talk about, and I think he and I have an unbelievable relationship and my opinion would matter to him.”
Boyd had a record-setting season at Clemson this season and was named the ACC Player of the Year. He also earned first team All-America honors.
