Josh Boyce opts for NFL over another go with TCU

Somewhat surprisingly, just five wide receivers from the FBS level have officially declared their intentions for the draft after a year in which 11 did the early leap.  Now, though, that number’s reached a half-dozen.

The sixth player at the position to leave is also the first for TCU this go-round, with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram confirming Josh Boyce has decided to leave a year of eligibility on the table to declare for the NFL draft.  Boyce has already earned his degree from the university, graduating last month.

Boyce has led the Horned Frogs in receiving yards each of the past three seasons, and led the team in receptions and receiving touchdowns each of the past two.  In 2012, he totaled a school-record 66 catches for 891 yards and seven touchdowns.

For his career, the 6-0, 203-pound Boyce had 161 receptions for 2,535 yards and 22 touchdowns.  The latter total is a school record, while the former are third and second all-time, respectively.

    Probably could have used another year at TCU, but with his degree in hand, who can possibly blame him?

    If he only weighs 2-3 pounds, maybe he should stay a year and bulk up.

    Yes. Even at 3 lbs. he’s pretty small. Maybe needs 200 or so packed on before he hits the NFL.

    Boyce is a darn good receiver with good speed, and great hands and with his 6’3″ frame, he is a big receiver who will be highly sought after. I can see him going in the 2nd round like Alshon Jeffrey from South Carolina did last year…similiar size comparison but with much better speed.

    btw, Boyce played at Copperas Cove HS in Texas, the same school that produced RGIII….

    We’ll miss him but I wish him well.

    Thanks Josh.
