2024 NFL draft: Colts hosting DT Khristian Boyd for top-30 visit

The Indianapolis Colts will be hosting Northern Iowa defensive tackle Khristian Boyd for a top-30 visit ahead of the 2024 NFL draft.

Though the Colts re-signed Grover Stewart to a three-year extension and added Raekown Davis in free agency on a two-year deal, they seem compelled to continue looking at depth options at the one-technique.

Our own Cody Manning highlighted Boyd as a potential target for the Colts earlier in the offseason. Here’s what he said about Boyd:

Current Draft Projection: Day 2-3

Khristian Boyd turned some heads in the All-Star season after getting called up from the Hulu Bowl to the East-West Shrine Bowl. He measured at 6-foot-2 and 320 pounds at the Shrine Bowl. In his final year at Northern Iowa, he registered 43 tackles (17 solo), six-and-a-half TFLs, and three-and-a-half sacks. Boyd is a powerful athlete whose explosiveness helps create leverage in run defense and setting up his pass-rush moves.

The Colts have all of their selections on Day 3 of the draft so Boyd may be a prospect to keep an eye on if Chris Ballard feels even more compelled to take Boyd after the team meets with him.
