Prospect Profile: Shane Boyd

Shane Boyd School: Kentucky
Ht: 6-0.5 Wt: 235 40: 4.58 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Moved into the fulltime starting role as a senior and posted 52.5%/1,328/7/9 passing, also leading the team on the ground with 102/ 297/5. First player in school history to record a touchdown rushing, receiving and passing in the same game.

Positives: College quarterback with excellent size/speed numbers who projects to another position in the NFL. Athletic with a good arm. Displays adequate timing and gets outside to make the throw on the move. Sees the field carrying the ball. Adequate hands at receiver and uses his large frame to shield away opponents.

Negatives: Not decisive in the pocket, stares down primary targets and forces the pass into coverage. Marginal accuracy.

Analysis: A solid athlete still learning to become a football player, Boyd was out of place at quarterback last season. Has the build and speed which lends one to believe he'll be a running back and possesses solid ball carrying instincts.
