I think it would benefit Boyd to come back and polish his skills?
So what will he polish up, that would make his draft status significantly higher?
This isn't a banner year for QB's, so what will he do to improve against the class coming out next year?
IMO he's late second, third round pick right now. Just not sure what he will show next year to moved into the first round that he didn't show this year. I mean he's already the best offensive player in the ACC, with miles and miles of stats.
He is not going to come anywhere close to sniffing the second or third round if he leaves this year. Fifth round at best IMO.
He needs to come back and show that he can go through his progressions, read defenses a little better, and not get completely rattled when he takes a couple of shots. I believe he could improve his stock up to second round status with the improvements he could make next year.
So what does the advisory report say, the rest of us are guessing. The committee is usually pretty accurate.
I think some of the progression stuff is more about the offensive scheme and OL than it is Boyd and personally i think the NFL guys see that.
Morris' O is huge on getting that first option, plus I'm not sold the OL will be much improved with the loss of Dalton. You might be right, but if the committee projects 2nd or third, then I still think he should go. If its 5th then I agree he should stay.
I don't believe the committee will project second or third round, and I think Tajh knows that at this point.
Boyd doesn't have much else he can prove honestly.
How about that he won't shit himself when the real bullets fly?
He ran into 3.5 of Clowney's sacks against Scar. He also rushed throws. He made some criminally bad reads, both with the zone read and where to throw the ball. Is this not an area of improvement? Will he be playing Duke in the pro's? If not, I think it is very reasonable to say he should continue to grow before going to the league.
agree. Boyd has to show he can do it consistently and especially against a good defense.

Totally agree with all of this. He would be foolish not to come back. He will make more money if he comes back IMO.
Man I love boyd and hes a great person and a great leader but he is not an NFL qb
He stares down receivers. He has trouble with accuracy at times in spurts during games. As well as he progressed, he still needs to work on his footwork. He forces balls. He gets in his own head at times (again, this has improved, but there were still some shaky moments this season). He continues to struggle against zone defenses.
He needs more work, but it is fair to say that he showed improvement over 2011. Another year of seasoning will serve him well, but I am skeptical that he will have success at the next level. Good kid, good leader, good college qb.
