Final Thought: Tyler Boyd may be the most physically gifted wide receiver in the nation. Great hands, body control, concentration, and athletic ability make him a rare gem that only has to work on his route running. Boyd is also only twenty years old, has a DUI to his name, and it remains to be seen if he is mature enough at this point in his life to handle being a top ten NFL Draft prospect. He is currently on probation and has a year to make people forget about his DUI. Thus far Boyd has shown why he should be one of the first two receivers chosen in the draft.
