I find nothing promising out of Boyd. Boyd was around the NFL last year and played in NFL Europe just a couple of months ago. He shouldn't look as raw as Jacobs that is for certain.
I'm not a fan or hater of either one and today was the first time I've seen either one of them play.
Unless Jacobs improves his arm strength I don't see him sticking around in the NFL very long. The first thing that came to mind when I seen Jacobs throw was Brian St. Pierre.

I think Boyd makes the final roster and Jacobs gets the practice squad.

I think he will end up being a fine QB.....

I'm a BG alum and went to a game last year. I must say Omar throws a nice ball, adjusting to a standard offense will take time but he could be special.

Seems to be the consensus...all we need him to be is a decent 3rd stringer. At this point he is hands down better than Boyd.
