Pos: 
Large receiver who projects to tight end at the next level. Offers the quarterback a huge target, works his way back to the ball and extends his hands to make receptions away from his frame. Looks the ball into his hands, makes difficult over-the-shoulder receptions and is tough to bring down after the catch. Tracks the pass in the air, uses the sidelines well and gets vertical over defenders to high point the ball. Plays to his size and uses his frame to shield away defenders.
Neg: 
Possesses marginal quickness, plays to his 40 time and lacks a deep burst. Has almost no experience as an inline blocker. Double-catches throws on occasion.
Analysis: 
Boyd comes with the size, speed and overall football skill to transition from receiver to tight end and should be given practice-squad consideration this fall.
