Earlier this month, Tajh Boyd was honored as a first-team All-American by the American Football Coaches Association - the first Clemson quarterback ever to be named to an A-A first team.
At the other end of the spectrum, Boyd has been now tagged No. 22 among draft-eligible quarterbacks by the website DraftInsider.net.
The website is not the first to write Boyd off as an NFL draft prospect.
The good news is that if the projections are even close to being accurate, Boyd will almost certainly return to Clemson for his senior season.
It's hard to make sense of Boyd's ranking, however, or the website's thumbnail analysis: 'Athletic college quarterback that’s a bigger threat running the ball rather than passing it."
Boyd is being projected as the last quarterback drafted - in the seventh round, and No. 22 at his position.
The 2013 draft is expected to be top-heavy with quarterbacks.
West Virginia's Geno Smith, Southern California's Matt Barkley, Tennessee's Tyler Bray and Arkansas' Tyler Wilson are all expected to be drafted by early in the second round. Florida State's EJ Manuel, Virginia Tech's Logan Thomas and Oklahoma's Landry Jones are pegged as second-rounders, with Miami's Stephen Morris, Alabama's A.J. McCarron and Syracuse's Ryan Nassib going in the third.
Ranked ahead of Boyd and projected in rounds 4-6 are N.C. State's Mike Glennon, Miami-Ohio's Zac Dysert, Georgia's Aaron Murray, Fresno State's Derek Carr, Boston College's Chase Rettig, Southern Utah's Brad Sorenson, Missouri's James Franklin, Kansas State's Collin Klein, North Carolina's Bryn Renner and Washington's Keith Price.
