Former Vanderbilt WR Chris Boyd has been invited to the NFL Scouting Combine.
"I was at the facility in between sessions, and I got it on my phone," he said. "Immediately, I was really thankful, called my dad, mom, my trainer, because we've been waiting on this. I'm just excited. I definitely thought there was still hope, but with the situation I was in, it wasn't something I thought would for sure happen." Boyd was talking about his alleged secondary involvement in a rape charge levied against four of his former Commodores teammates. Boyd wasn't present at the assault and was charged instead with assisting a cover-up attempt after the fact. That charge was reduced to a misdemeanor, but Vanderbilt declined to reinstate him to the football team. Boyd (6-foot-4, 205 pounds) made 50 receptions for 774 yards in 2012.
