The two Tigers are among 18 ACC seniors playing in the all-star game, which will be kick off at 3 p.m., on Saturday, Jan. 25 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. The NFL-sponsored game will be televised by the NFL Network.
Coaches, scouts and executives from all NFL teams will be in attendance this week, taking a closer took at draft-eligible seniors.
Players from the ACC are split between the designated North and South squads. Boyd and Thomas will play for the North, which is under the direction of Mike Smith and his Atlanta Falcons' coaching staff.
Boyd is one of three quarterbacks on the North team, along with Logan Thomas of Virginia Tech and Stephen Morris of Miami.
Other ACC players on the North team are Wake Forest wide receiver Michael Campanaro, N.C. State defensive back Dontae Johnson, Miami offensive linemen Brandon Linder and Seantrel Henderson, Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald and Virginia Tech defensive end James Gayle.
Playing for the South team and Jacksonville Jaguars' coach Gus Bradley are Florida State linebackers Christian Jones and Telvin Smith, FSU safety Terrence Brooks, FSU center Bryan Stork, Virginia defensive end Brent Urban and offensive tackle Morgan Moses, and Georgia Tech safety Jemea Thomas.
Quarterbacks for the South team are David Fales of San Jose State, Derek Carr of Fresno State, and Jimmy Garoppolo of Eastern Illinois. Garoppolo, who was the FCS's top passer as a senior, was named as a late replacement for Alabama's A.J. McCarron, who opted not to play in the game.
The players arrived in Mobile on Saturday and underwent physical exams on Sunday. Boyd measured 6-feet, ¾ inches and 222 pounds, with a hand-span of 9 and 3/8 inches. Thomas measured in at 6 feet 3 3/4ths and 316 pounds, with 10 3/4 hands.
