Get to know Bengals WR Tyler Boyd

New, comments

We take a look through the social media accounts of the Bengals' second round Draft pick, Tyler Boyd.

In an attempt to get to know Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd, we took a look through the most interesting moments he's shared on social media over the past few years. Boyd certainly has a strong passion for the city of Pittsburgh where he grew up, played in high school and played in college. Now, Pittsburgh will be enemy No. 1 as he joins the Cincinnati Bengals.

Heinz Field isn't new territory for the Pittsburgh native and former Pittsburgh Panther receiver. The Panthers play at Heinz Field so he should feel plenty adjusted when the Bengals take on the Steelers in Week 2 in Pittsburgh.

And, he's been a hometown hero in Pittsburgh... Though, that's changing now.

He was a winner in high school, too.

And, he did wear Bengals colors in high school so orange and black aren't new to Boyd.

Boyd knows the meaning of family.

I want to wish a very special happy birthday to the most important women in my life i love you mom dukes

Boyd is pretty quick, which will come in handy.

And strong.

He has an attitude of someone who looks forward to proving his critics wrong.

He wrote this letter of appreciation to Pittsburgh, but we're hoping those days are behind him.

Just want to say thank you (UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH) been a honor to be apart of the #PITT family

And he has high expectations for himself.

We look forward to Boyd making an impact for the Bengals, especially against his hometown Steelers.
