Analysis

Strengths

Excellent frame. Chews up ground with long strides. Controls his body and uses size to his advantage. Good hands -- extends to catch off his body. Adjusts to throws. Good potential as a blocker -- can engage and stalk. Good work ethic.

Weaknesses

Average burst off the line. Lacks elite top-end speed to separate vertically. Not strong to beat the jam. Shows some hip stiffness and is fairly straight-linish. Has to be hit in stride to pick up chunk yards after the catch.

Bottom Line

Big, slender, West Coast, short-to-intermediate possession receiver who could compete for a job as a No. 4 or No. 5. Having sat the year out, Boyd’s performance at the combine and in workouts will determine draft standing.
