He sure didn't make the correct decision in a tough position. But it doesn't necessarily make him a bad guy. His teammates were.
According to this detailed report Boyd played a role in trying to cover up (but not perpetrate) the VERY poor choices of his teammates during the summer of 2013. Subsequently, he was dismissed from the team and didn’t play a snap for the 2013 ‘Dores. It sounds like they panicked and contacted him for advice. I’ve recently been a college student and spent three years coaching undergraduate leaders, so I know how they behave when things go wrong. Let’s hope that the fact that Boyd has been cooperating with the investigation shows that he has learned from his mistake.
Apparently his teammates were involved in a possible rape and he tried to help them cover it up. He was kicked off the team and missed the entire 2013 season
Not surprised he went undrafted
Big mistake by the kid, but hopefully he learned his lesson from it and moved on. Sucks that his teammates drug him into that mess to begin with.
The Biggest Sleeper in the 2014 NFL Draft: Vanderbilt WR Chris Boyd
I really Wished that on these player highlight films, especially for WRs, they would focus on the WRs. Too many show the QB and cut to the WR but that doesn't really help you with evaluating things like release, how well they use their hands, route running, how well they get in and out of cuts, just all the things that go into evaluating a WR. Also, show WRs in the run game. Show me how they block down field. So important in evaluating a WR.
