Meet Cory Boyd
Running back S.C., 6-1, 213 Round 7, 238th pick
Racked up 2,267 yards rushing and 1,303 receiving, joining Stanley Pritchett as the only Gamecocks to surpass 1,000 in both. … Was a bright spot in a struggling offense, rushing for 17 touchdowns over his final two seasons.
Boyd is a physical, inside runner and solid receiver out of the backfield. Far from flashy, he doesn’t have that high-end speed (4.52 seconds in the 40-yard dash) but is hard to bring down. He bounced back from a one-year suspension in 2005 to start 24 consecutive games for coach Steve Spurrier. General manager Bruce Allen said he likes Boyd’s production.
