|Boyd is a leader and a winner. He is one of those guys that makes everyone around him better. He shows a lot of poise in the pocket and is more of a pocket guy than he is a dual threat QB. He has a strong arm and decent touch on his deep balls. Boyd needs to work on his decision making as we see him try and force the action from time to time. He has continued to get better each year and he shows tremendous upside. - Bob Lichtenfels|

Boyd plans to major in sports marketing and reports a 2.9 core GPA and a 18 ACT.
Boyd: "I have a quick release. And a pretty strong arm. I can move around in the pocket well. I'm more of a pro-style quarterback, but have good movement. I can be a dual-threat, but I'm always looking to throw before I run."
"I'm still trying to read defenses better and see the field better. I also want to work on some of my mechanics.
"Some people say I'm small. But I'm 6-foot-1 and change, so I wouldn't say I'm exactly vertically challenged."
