Boyd was an acclaimed prep player and has been a three-year starter for Florida State. He led the Atlantic Coast Conference in batting at .395 entering regional play. He has adjusted his approach and swing since high school, when he was a 19th-round pick as a third baseman. He has become a contact hitter with gap power, hitting 16 homers his first two seasons but just three this spring. He's an above-average defender at first with good hands, but hasn't gotten much exposure in college at third, which obviously would increase his value. His lack of home run power and righthanded-hitting first-base profile makes him tough to peg from a draft standpoint.
