    The former Vanderbilt wide receiver didn't play last season, suspended and later dismissed from the team after being charged by police with helping to cover up a rape that resulted in the expulsion of four teammates. While Boyd is not alleged to have been at the scene of the crime, and charges against him were later reduced to a misdemeanor, his after-the-fact involvement will no doubt be something all 32 clubs ask him about.

    "I know the questions are coming," Boyd told "And I am ready to tell my side of what happened, and it will clear up a lot of the misconceptions about what really did happen. I know everyone is going to want to know about it, and I understand that."

    Boyd's agent, Chris Turnage, told the publication that he understands Boyd to be a third- to fifth-round pick. His suspension kept him off the field for the entirety of the 2013 season, so he'll be two years removed from game action by the fall. Russ Lande, who formerly worked in scouting with the Cleveland Browns and St. Louis Rams, underscored the importance of the interview process for Boyd.
