This is what most Blather readers figured, some even picked the Bengals specifically. He was the 55th player drafted and went just about where he should of.
Here is the Trib’s take on this:
“I felt like I should have been (drafted) earlier, but it doesn’t matter,” he said. “Just take advantage of the opportunity.”
Boyd said he is eager to join Bengals star receiver A.J Green. “We can definitely be the top duo in the country,” he said.
Going to play for one of the Steelers’ AFC North rivals didn’t bother him. He said his supporters, many of whom spent Thursday and Friday night with him at the Omni, won’t desert him.
“At the end of the day, they are going to be on my side because they love me and care about me,” he said. “Everyone here who came to celebrate can come up there and watch me continue my legacy.”
Here is a bit of a blast from the past – a podcast by Kevin Gorman (who used to cover Pitt football along with Jerry DiPaola) of the Trib – he talks a bit about the draft.
