  Boyd's presence this season is a huge bonus for the Razorbacks, as many thought he would declare early for the NFL Draft. His production a year ago included touchdown runs of 59 yards against Colorado State, 74 yards at Kentucky, and 76 and 86 yards against Western Kentucky, when he was given just 8 carries. Boyd's 6.2 yards per carry were higher than Hill (5.6), Harris (5.9), Texas A&M's Isaiah Spiller (5.4) and Auburn's Boobie Whitlow (4.9). It was basically on par with Georgia's D'Andre Swift (6.21), and a bit behind LSU's Clyde Edwards-Helaire (6.58). Boyd said he came back to Arkansas to work on his pass catching and pass protection, and to help Arkansas football win more games in its climb back.

He is in very limited full-contact work in camp, which has given him a good eye for scouting the talent behind him. "Man, A'Montae Spivey has impressed me," Boyd said early in camp. "I think he runs literally just like me. The kid has some of my ways, but he's young, so he's still learning. Once he gets it, it's there. "You've got Oglesby, [who] is really fast. He can hit the hole. You've got Dominique, who is big and fast. He has good vision. Really good vision. He reminds me of myself with the vision he's got." Boyd said the more features a back brings -- such as pass catching, pass blocking and knowing all the nuances of the offense -- help him stay on the field longer. "You have all those packages as a running back, you get to do more things," he said. "You get to be a first-down, second-down and third-down back. All of those guys are becoming every-down backs. I'm still trying to become one. - Northwest Arkansas Times
