CBSSports.com has Boyce listed as the No. 15 wide receiver prospect in the 2014 class, but the group of underclassmen at his position in the 2013 class leaves plenty of room for Boyce to improve his stock between now and April.
"Boyce lines up outside in the Horned Frogs' scheme but projects nicely as a slot receiver in the NFL due to his build, competitiveness and savviness as a route-runner," wrote Rob Rang, CBSSports.com's NFL Draft expert.
Boyce has been the most consistent piece of the Horned Frogs offense throughout his career, finding success with three quarterbacks -- Andy Dalton, Casey Pachall, Trevone Boykin -- in two different conferences, and playing a key role in TCU's historic 2011 Rose Bowl Win against Wisconsin.
Boyce recorded 66 receptions for 891 yards and seven touchdowns, leading the team in all categories and ranking in the top 10 among Big 12 wide receivers in 2012. He already earned his degree in December and leaves as the program's all-time leader with 22 touchdown receptions. Boyce ranks third all-time with 161 receptions and second all-time with 2,535 receiving yards.
