Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline lists Texas senior CB Kris Boyd as one of his "risers" for his play on Saturday against USC.

Boyd had some ankle issues against Maryland and Tulsa, but he looked healthy against USC. " Boyd was terrific in all facets of his position posting 5 tackles, breaking up 1 pass and picking off 1 throw, which the Longhorns converted into a field goal," Pauline writes. At 6-foot, 195-pounds, Boyd has solid size, and as Pauline notes, he plays a physical brand of football. He's certainly a name to keep an eye on over the next three-plus months.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline believes Texas senior DB Kris Boyd has "flashed big time ability."

Pauline graded Boyd as a 3rd-to-4th round prospect and said "He’s a feisty defender who stays on the receiver's hip, tracks the ball in the air and works to break up throws. Boyd willingly defends the run but needs to step up his consistency in all areas." He has three career interceptions and has recorded 40 or more tackles in two consecutive seasons.

247Sports' Taylor Estes reports that Texas junior CB Kris Boyd will return to school for the 2018 season.

The Longhorns have lost five underclassmen -- including star T Connor Williams -- to the draft, but they received two good pieces of news this week, with DE Charles Omenihu and now Boyd announcing returns for a 2018 run in Austin. Per Estes, the 6-foot, 200-pound junior was seriously considering a jump for the pros. He was a 12-game starter during the 2017 campaign and earned second-team All-Big 12 recognition from the Associated Press at the end of the season after posting 54 tackles, 15 passes defended (tops in the conference) and two interceptions.
