Scouting Report/Player Notes

Boyd is a very good run defending defensive tackle prospect who plays with good power and leverage, but he’s not near the pass rusher his former teammate Fletcher Cox was a year ago. Boyd is a gap-clogger who can occupy blockers and sometimes make plays in the backfield, but he’s definitely most effective as a gap-stuffing run defender. He’s quick off the snap and does a good job playing with pop, but if his quickness isn’t good enough to get him in the backfield, he can be rendered ineffective pretty quickly. I think he could potentially be a player teams look at in the first two rounds. He has been unable to put up big numbers with Cox off to the NFL, but I still think he’s a very solid prospect.
