Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about KRIS BOYD: Texas, 5114 201 4.45. Three year starter from Gilmer, TX. Became a starter early in his sophomore year and has progressed ever since. Has experience in a variety of coverage including press and off man, Cover 2, deep outside third and quarter. As a press corner is reactive with short quick steps to mirror off the line. Normally doesn’t give up leverage. Will use his body to ride a receiver on the sideline. Can cut off route breaks and has the speed to stay in phase up the field. In off coverage plays with bend and has a quick choppy pedal. Plays with proper cushion and can time turn and run to stay in phase. Physical as a hard corner with a two hand jam to reroute. Sinks under deeper routes in the zone and is quick to react up to flat routes. Has a burst on his plant and drive. Flashes ball skills with high point ability on the interception. Has made some plays sinking in Cover 2. Disrupts the catch point when in phase. Breaks up a lot of passes. Tough in run support. Takes on stalk block with an inside punch and shed working to the ball. Second effort to get in on tackles. Will chase. Bends his knees and can lay a hit. Grabby versus a double move and can stay in contact with receivers too long up field. This showed up with interference penalties in the Senior Bowl. Boyd has NFL talent but best suited to play in schemes that feature zone and press. With his toughness he has sub package and special team potential. 2018 stats: 67 T, 4.5 TFL, 1 sack, 16 PBU, 1 QBH, 1 FF, 1 INT. BTR:left 5.13, right 5.40. OSR:11/ 33. Fourth/fifth round. (A-30 3/4, H-9, VJ-36.5, SS-4.10).
