In the third quarter, he whiffed on a tackle a few yards past the line of scrimmage. Boykin seemed afraid of getting run over as he tried to grab the running back's jersey rather than going in hard for a tackle. The back powered his way into the end zone.
[View Full Quote]On the next possession, Boykin got beat on a quick out for a short touchdown catch, but the play was reviewed and overturned into an incompletion as the ball scraped against the ground. Later in the third quarter, he got run over trying to tackle a running back out of the backfield. The back went through him and cruised into the end zone for a score. Boykin had a quality tackle later in the game, but his run support overall was poor
not a big fan
I think most folks want Boykins as a returner, and then as a 4th or 5th cb.
