    Tajh Boyd - QB - Tigers
    Clemson QB Tajh Boyd completed 31 of 40 attempts for 378 passing yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions in a 40-35 victory against Ohio State in Friday's Orange Bowl.

    He also gashed OSU on the ground, running for 127 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries. Boyd finished the season by throwing for three or more touchdowns in four of five games. Despite a stellar performance in an upset win, the polarizing prospect drew heat from analysts during the contest after throwing a pair of interceptions. "At this point, it would be a surprise if Boyd cracks the top-32 picks," CBS Sports' Dane Brugler tweeted during the game, "and it wouldn't surprise me if he's not drafted in the top-75 either." He added in another tweet: "Over the summer, I thought Boyd could be a 1st rounder but in my opinion he showed almost no improvement from 2012, especially with accuracy."

    Blake Bortles - QB - Golden Knights
    CBS Sports' Dane Brugler tweeted that "people are going to be shocked when" UCF redshirt junior QB Blake Bortles "goes No. 1 overall to the Texans."

    "Bortles going top-10 isn't a media creation," Brugler tweeted on Thursday. "Because some scouts think he's the top QB, does that mean a GM will draft him top-10? Of course not. But it's not as crazy as most think." The NFL's draft advisory board gave Bortles mostly first-round grades and it would be an utter shock if he doesn't declare for the draft prior to Jan. 15's deadline. The 6-foot-5, 230-pound signal caller's movement skills and strength in the pocket remind us of Andrew Luck and Ben Roethlisberger.

    Looking at the top 8 teams:

    Houston
    St. Louis
    Jax
    Cleveland
    Oakland
    Atlanta
    Tampa
    Minnesota

    Which ones would absolutely surprise you if they took a quarterback? Atlanta. That's the only one that I can't see. I don't think St. Louis will, but it's not out of the question. Thinking about it, if they decide against Bradford, then the odds of them using it on a quarterback go way up (They won't be in that high position again). And they also could trade the pick to a qb-hungry team.

    To get one of the top prospects I suspect that you would have to trade above Minnesota. And Minnesota might have to trade above Minnesota.
