Last season, Boyd led Clemson to an 11-2 season capped with a 40-35 Orange Bowl victory over Ohio State where he completed 31 of 40 passes for 378 yards and five touchdowns with 127 rushing yards and a touchdown.
Boyd said he's guarding against trying to do too much to show critics they're wrong about him.
"You can't go out there and press," Boyd said. "I learned that early in my career. When you press, you don't do what you need to do. We're not playing in a game right now, but you've got to be who you are."
Torn ACL for Colvin
Oklahoma cornerback Aaron Colvin was off to a fast start at practice this week, shadowing receivers all over the field.
Now, Colvin is dealing with unfortunate circumstances just as he was making a positive impression on NFL teams.
Colvin is heading for surgery after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee Tuesday afternoon during practice, according to his agent, Ken Sarnoff.
