Bucs take South Carolina RB in 7th



BoydThe Bucs likely wrapped up their draft selections by picking South Carolina RB Cory Boyd in the seventh round, 238th overall.

Boyd, a 6-foot-1, 214-pounder is considered a physical, inside runner with strong ball-catching skills out of the backfield; the Gamecocks' quiet offensive leader racked up 2,267 career rushing yards, 1,303 receiving yards.

In the last two years, he's racked up 17 TDs, coming on strong after returning from a one-year suspension in 2005.

We'll be talking to Jon Gruden in a second, so we'll have more updates shortly.
