Pittsburgh Panthers wide receiver Tyler Boyd will skip his senior season and declare for the NFL draft.
The junior is coming off the best season of his collegiate career in 2015, recording 91 catches for 926 yards and six touchdowns.
The 6'2", 200-pounder from Clairton, Pa., was named first-team All-ACC as a receiver and second-team All-ACC as a return specialist in his sophomore season, becoming the first player in ACC history to compile 1,000 receiving yards in each of his freshman and sophomore seasons. In his 2013 season, Boyd led all freshmen in the nation, compiling 85 catches for 1,174 yards and seven touchdowns
Boyd wrote a thank you letter to the city of Pittsburgh while announcing his decision to enter the draft.
Boyd had six receptions for 53 yards and five carries for 55 yards in Pittsburgh’s 44–28 loss to Navy on Monday in the Military Bowl.
