Tyler Boyd Scouting Report

Tyler Boyd WR Pittsburgh #23

Size/Athleticism: 6’2″,200. Excellent athleticism for his size. More explosive than most receivers at his height. Lined up as a traditional running back on occasion. Has experience returning kicks.

Separation Skills: Has enough speed to be a viable deep threat at the next level. Routes are adequate but could be improved. Tends to route off his cuts, which limits the effectiveness of his explosive ability. Most frequently used on quick-strike routes due to the limited skill set of the many quarterbacks he worked with at Pitt.

Ball Skills: Strong hands to pluck the ball from the air. Knows how to use his frame to shield defenders when going up for contested targets but lacks the strength to consistent fend them off if he doesn’t immediately gain the upper hand in positioning for the ball. Fairly consistent at high pointing the ball when in tight coverage. Does a great job adjusting to poorly thrown balls.

Blocking: Gives an adequate effort and has enough strength to be effective.

Intangibles: Suspended after DUI arrest in 2015.

Durability: No known issues.

Overview: Boyd can make an immediate impact as a slot receiver in the NFL and could be a more explosive version of Jarvis Landry. He played with three different quarterbacks in three years as a starter at Pitt and is definitely a candidate to have a more impressive pro career as a result of the inconsistent supporting cast he had in college. He probably lacks the size and the elite speed to develop into a No. 1 in the NFL, but either in the slot or as a second option on the outside, he’ll make an impact as a starting receiver.
