 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  After the Razorbacks' first preseason practice under first-year football head coach Sam Pittman on Monday, Boyd said he believes he played a bit on the heavy side as a junior. The tailback was listed at 213 pounds, according to Arkansas' roster. Regardless, he ran for better than 1,100 yards, eight touchdowns and at one point led the SEC in rushing as Arkansas played its way through the second full month of the schedule. Entering a critical year in regards to his draft stock and dreams of playing in the NFL, Boyd is at his ideal playing weight, 206 pounds. He is feeling better than ever physically. "This year, I think I'm seeing a 4-pack. I think I'm seeing a 6-pack," Boyd joked during a Zoom conference with reporters. "I've never seen one of those before on my body. My body has been different. I think I'm just ripping up or something.

"It's a different strength program and I love these guys. They do all the things we need. If you see me at 215, I probably ate a pizza before I got on the scale." On top of that, in another Zoom conference last week, Razorbacks offensive coordinator Kendal Briles spoke highly of Boyd, complimenting the senior's character and willingness to lead. He believes Boyd is an all-around, every-down back. "He's been unbelievable. He's been really, really good," Briles said. "Not just with the running back group or offense - he's been a great teammate overall. I can't say enough good things about Rakeem and how he's been." - Northwest Arkansas Times
