Chris Boyd, WR, Vanderbilt

UDFA. Signed by the Cowboys as a UDFA but was released in August. Was a redshirt junior.

Positives: Great height and above-average bulk for the position. Above-average hand size. Can make the tough catch. Fairly elusive after the catch and is not easy to bring down. Nimble on the sidelines. Very good body control and concentration on tough passes. Average speed. Fairly physical with CBs off the line and can hand fight down the field.

Negatives: Suspended by Vanderbilt for an attempted cover-up of a rape and battery by teammates in Summer 2013 – was later kicked off the team. Seems to misjudge passes in the air. Inconsistent hands and concentration. Runs more like a tight end than a wide receiver. Below-average upper body strength.

Projection: Should make either the roster or a practice squad. Has enough NFL skills to stick around and contribute. Not need to draft, but keep an eye on him.
