As Senior Bowl week continues to unfold, scouts are saying good things about some players — and bad things about others.
Tony Pauline of DraftInsider.net recently shared an observation from an unnamed Packers scout regarding former Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd: “[B]ased on what I’m seeing Tajh Boyd is not draftable.”
The assessment apparently hasn’t improved. Pauline posted earlier on Twitter that Boyd has been “all over the place with throws” at the Wednesday Senior Bowl practice.
There’s a certain irony to the notion that a Packers scout would be pooh-poohing any quarterbacking draft prospect, given the team’s struggles to draft, or otherwise find, a competent backup to Aaron Rodgers. There’s also a chance that the unnamed scout is doing what plenty of unnamed scouts do this time of year — say bad things about guys they like and good things about guys they don’t.
