    One of the faster players in the 2022 class, Boyd is a double-plus runner who will turn in 80-grade run times from home to first, and times under four seconds on jailbreaks. That speed gives him a carrying tool and should allow him to provide plenty of value as a defender in the outfield, with excellent defensive instincts and athleticism that allow him to make difficult plays on the run in the gaps. He needs more refinement as a hitter. He has quick hands in the box and could turn into a contact- and speed-oriented bat, but there’s little impact presently. Boyd does have a lean, 6-foot-1, 166-pound frame that should add more strength in the future, but where he is drafted will ultimately depend on how highly a team buys into his pure hitting ability. Boyd is committed to Northwest Florida JC.
