Tajh Boyd, Matt SimmsThe NY Jets have 12 new players, courtesy of the NFL Draft.  With their 4th selection in the 6th round they picked Tajh Boyd (QB) from Clemson.  Rex Ryan’s son is a freshman at Clemson and spoke highly of Tajh. Rex Ryan said, “I just think we probably had more of an insight to probably his character with my son being there. My son had a thing about his leadership, Tajh’s leadership. He said he was the leader of that program as far as a player’s concerned. He said if Tajh would have called a meeting at 2:00 AM, the entire football team would have been there.”

To survive as a QB in New York, you need to be a strong leader.  You also need to be a good QB, so the question is what else does Tajh Boyd bring to the table?  Terry Bradway gave this assessment of Boyd, “(He had a) productive college career, really productive. And he really throws the ball well. We were there last spring and they were having spring practice and I was really impressed with how accurate he was throwing the deep ball, more than a lot of quarterbacks I’ve seen. So that was good. His interception-to-touchdown ratio is good.”

Boyd will go into camp with a lot to prove, but the Jets are happy that he was still available in the 6th round. CBS Sports talks about how far Boyd dropped in the draft rankings.

The QB was a likely first-rounder and one of the most talked-to players in college football with the Tigers, until falling from the spotlight with his team’s mid-October 51-14 drubbing by Florida State.  Despite the drop off, Boyd thinks he’ll be selected by the third round. Most projections include him with a group of second-tier passers, many who’ll be available Saturday when teams finish with rounds four through seven

The good news for the Jets is that Boyd will battle Matt Simms for the 3rd QB position.  This competition will have no impact, at least initially, on the starting job.  Last year Matt Simms upset Greg McElroy for the 3rd spot.  Can Matt Simms do it again this year, against a tougher competitor in Boyd?  Simms has the advantage early because he knows the system and has a little NFL game experience.  Boyd will have to show that he can take a snap under center, since he played out of the shotgun extensively at Clemson.

The upside with Boyd seems much higher, so our bet is he will win the 3rd QB job.  Then the Jets have a year to evaluate him and see what his future holds.  Michael Vick is only under contract for one-year.  So the winner of the battle between Simms and Boyd will have a shot to be in the league for a long time.

Boyd. Sims had a chance when they benched Smith. He looked cr&p.

I would guess that Boyd will be placed on the practice squad for 2014 and Simms would be #3.

Who cares, I mean really. Neither will ever amount to anything in the NFL.

the beauty of taking boyd so late is if simms beats him out, he can be stashed on PS or just cut. 

 

But lets be honest, this was rex's pick and he will have to be just awful not to get a year to develop, and QB's get stolen off of PS's if they are any good so boyd will win hands down

 

the jets will cut simms as soon as they can so he can catch on somewhere else.  I hope they feature him VS giants in week 3 of PS to get him some more film

Did Matt Simms take a bunch of tanning pills to get that scholarship to Harvard?

I think Rex will slightly favor Boyd because of his son, but Simms will play himself onto the roster.  Don't forget, there was some talk about actually starting the season with Simms #1 last year before they gave it to Geno.

I'm absolutely rooting for Simms, who I think didn't get a fair shake at all last year (he got what - one quarter?).  However, I think Rex likes Tajh so he'll probably be the guy.

Boyd is the perfect Scout Team QB (can run Scout Team and the upcoming weeks opponents Offense whether its a Pro-set/Spread/Hybrid to get our Defense properly prepped) and a clone of Geno/Vick. He is a lock to stay

The only thing those 3 have in common is their skin color. I wish Geno had Vicks mobility.

I like how 3/4 of our QBs are black when most NFL teams don't even have one ..... I hope Boyd becomes a steal and develops into a very good QB who can start or back up Geno and when we need him in we don't lose a beat

Matt Simms will prove to be the clear choice for STARTING QB but once again politics and media will prevent him from doing so thus dropping him to the 3..

Which is why I expect Simms makes the roster, Boyd goes to the PS.

If they cuts Simms, he will be scooped up in about 30 seconds, probably by the Jints. Arms like that are uncommon.

Well , your honesty is refreshing.  I get so sick of hearing the old standby... " He's  an Athletic" or "Running"QB!    Thanks for stating the obvious.  that said, I really  like Matt Simms!!!  He's young, great arm, confident,and got an "IT" factor. We'd be crazyy to let him go!!!You can see it when he plays. Remeber, hes learning on the fly too!  Keep the other guy for my money,  which its not...but a guy can dream can't he? .......GO JETS !!!  :box:
