There will certainly be a lot of news coming out of the Senior Bowl and upcoming events that will relate to the Raiders, but there's no question that any news relating to quarterback prospects are especially interesting.
The team is expected to target a quarterback in this year's draft after missing on Tyler Wilson in the fourth round last year. Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie has also made it known that the Raiders do in fact need a franchise quarterback.
Just a day after Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd told WalterFootball.com that the Raiders have shown him the most interest, more news broke about the young quarterback.
According to Rotoworld, a Green Bay Packers scout called Boyd "not draftable."
Boyd possesses many of the assets teams look for in a quarterback but he can also be inaccurate. His accuracy during this weekend's Senior Bowl will certainly be something scouts will be keeping a close eye on.
Boyd finished his senior season completing 69 percent of his passes for 3,851 yards, 34 touchdowns and 11 interceptions while also rushing for 400 yards.
What occurs for Boyd on the field the remainder of the week and in the game on Saturday will likely have a strong impact on his draft stock. Boyd is currently believed to go in the second round.
