Pos: 
Feisty, athletic cornerback best facing the action. Plays aggressive football, mixes it up with opponents and gives effort against the run. Quick to transition and flip his hips off the line. Effectively times pass defenses and physically beats down receivers to knock away the throw. Plays to his 40 time, runs with opponents down the field and shows a nice move to the throw. Fires up the field and works hard to defend screen passes and running plays.
Neg: 
Hesitant and very late out of his plant when he breaks to the ball. Struggles to get his head back around. Faceguards and gets beat deep too often. Performed poorly during Senior Bowl practices.
Analysis: 
Boyd has the size and speed to play at the next level but shows limitations when his back is to the ball. Best in zone or backed off the line of scrimmage, he offers possibilities in dime packages at the next level.
