- Former Vanderbilt WR Chris Boyd entering NFL Draft...Former Vanderbilt wide receiver Chris Boyd has elected not to transfer to a new program after his September dismissal and will instead enter the 2014 NFL Draft. "Basically, [I] just thought if I was ready to make this jump, and it came down to me just believing in my talents, and also knowing I'll be having my degree from Vanderbilt here in May," Boyd told NFL.com, who reported the decision. "I felt like after how everything went, it was just time to move on to bigger and better things."
Boyd was dismissed from the Commodore program after he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor accessory charge in the rape investigation that resulted in the arrest of four of Boyd's former teammates on sexual battery charges. As part of his plea deal, Boyd agreed to assist prosecutors with the case after the prosecution alleged the junior from Roswell, Ga. "was not completely truthful with the police" concerning conversations he had had with the accused players. - Jerry Hinnen, CBSSports.com
