QB Prospect Has Good Pro Day

By Jim McCoy Thu 6th March SportsNFLTajh Boyd
Quarterback Tajh Boyd had a strong showing at Clemson's pro day Thursday and felt he erased some of the doubts about his skills that have cropped up since the season ended. Boyd, consensus top-10 pick Sammy Watkins and 6-foot-5 receiver Martavis Bryant were among the ex-Tigers who auditioned for some 60 NFL personnel, including New York Jets coach Rex Ryan and recently hired Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell. Watkins was as smooth as expected catching the ball while Boyd looked like his record-setting college self in about 20 minutes of throwing. Questions about Boyd's ability were raised after his performance at the Senior Bowl in January and at the NFL combine last month. Neither Boyd nor the speedy Watkins ran or worked out, except for the passing drills.
