I think we all need to slow down a few. Boyd didn't even get a 1st round grade for 2013. How is he being projected a top 10-15 pick in 2014 in what is supposed to be a stronger QB class?
I certainly don't see Russell Wilson when I am watching Boyd , and I actually haven't heard that one before because it frankly doesn't make sense.
How is him not getting a first round grade relevant to this discussion? First of all, the committee grades conservatively and players, if they go high, should a progression in their development. How many players that went in the first round this year were guys we were talking about this time a year ago? The answer is not too many of them.
Right now, like many years, people believe the quarterback class will be stronger than the previous. Bridegwater is the lead dog next year as a potentially elite talent, and after that the perceived depth that next year's quarterback class has is thanks to a player like Boyd.
