Scouting Report: Josh Boyce, WR, TCU
Boyce Reminds me a little bit of Randall Cobb without the great hands, but with more size and perhaps a bit more speed. He could be a real find for a team like New England or New Orleans.
Boyce recently had surgery to repair a broken bone in his foot. The surgery took place after he ran a 4.38 at the Combine. This could turn him into a real value on draft day given the depth and overall quality of this year’s receiving class. The injury is to his pinky toe and a full recovery is expected before training camp, though it will hinder his ability over the next few months and thusly through offseason NFL activities.
This kid is a steal in round six if he gets there and he makes good sense to us starting in round four.
Things we like about Josh Boyce....
- Speed. Boyce is fast on film and that speed was confirmed at the Combine.
- Quickness. In addition to being fast, Boyce has great agility which showed up at the Combine as well.
- Aggressiveness. Boyce will get up and fight for the ball and he’ll fight for key yards.
- Makes yards after contact and breaks tackles well for his size due to his quickness and a low center of gravity.
- His hands are solid, just not outstanding.
- He can help an NFL team right away as a return man.
- Has a nose for the goal line.
- Solid overall build for the NFL at 5’11” and 206 pounds. Should be able to play outside and not just in the slot.

This is our last scouting report before the draft. I’ll have a draft article posted tomorrow and then we’ll get into assimilating all the new rookie talent and prepping for the 2013 fantasy season. We’ll have intermittent content up until late July and then you’ll see us really kick into gear as we always do.
