Ken Laird and Jerry Dipaola live from Pitt Pro Day on Tyler Boyd improving his draft stock. Then hear from Tyler Boyd, KK Mosley-Smith, Darryl Render and JP Holtz in that order on their Pro Days.


Pitt held their annual football Pro Timing Day at the UPMC Sports Performance Complex on Wednesday, with several NFL teams represented.

Working out for Pitt were: WR Tyler Boyd, LB Nicholas Grigsby, TE J.P. Holtz, DL Khaynin Mosley-Smith, LS David Murphy, DB Lafayette Pitts, DL Darryl Render, and OL Artie Rowell.

Boyd, the marquee attraction with the highest NFL draft stock, only participated in the 40-yard draft and individual position skill work (route running). According to Boyd, he ran under a 4.50 40-yard dash, somewhere in the “4.46 or 4.47” range. At the NFL Combine, Boyd ran a time of 4.58 that he admitted he was disappointed in.


Hand times at Pro Days from the various scouts in attendance ranged from 4.47 to 4.51 according to a source, with one scout saying he had Boyd at 4.51 and 4.56.

Boyd looked smooth in the route running, catching balls from former Pitt quarterback Trey Anderson.

Also drawing some buzz from scouts were Grigsby and Pitts for their various times, although none were made official.

The stations for testing included the vertical jump, broad jump, pro shuttle, three-cone drill, and 60-yard shuttle in addition to the 40-yard dash.
