    CB, Punt Returner, RB/Receiver.

    He's versatile. I think he might take over my #2 spot.

    Michigan State isn't a roody-poo program.

    Here's another video. Watch the read and react, and the tackle.

    Here's him vs. Michigan State...complete video.

    Handful of plays in there MSU could only stop him by holding him on the screen plays.

    I would love to have him as a slot-CB and punt returner. I don't know if he is big enough to play on the outside on a full time basis.

    He would be great 3rd round pick, I'm undecided about him at #45.

    5'11", 187 lbs. He's well-built.

    I'd take him at #45 for sure, dependent on how free agency goes.

    You think so? Sounds skinny.

    I saw him make some mistakes in coverage, but man hes fast. That safety he got was WOW.

    Uh.. i saw he measured in at 5'9 and 181 lbs at the combine. Could you show me where you think you saw he's 5'11? He's not that tall.

    I think he is gonna have problems with big receivers. He is fast though

    and I think that is what has driven his stock down. I think he is a good player and Brett Grimes has shown you don't need to be a tall CB to be a successful CB. Boykins 3rd rd would be great.

    It would be a dream. I don't think he'll make it past the 2nd round though, and i'd be very happy taking him there with our pick. Or Hosely.

    He'll struggle against bigger receivers, but i think he'd make a great slot CB and can cover the deep threats like D Jag and Cruz. He's got all world athleticism and speed.

    If he was actually 5'11 he's most likely go in the first, no question.. but he's not.

    I like this kid but I think Stephon Gilmore is better....and would be a better fit for Dallas.

    He is dealing with a broken leg which is why he did not workout at the Combine so I would not be shocked if he lasted until the 3rd

    As for bigger WR in 2009 Georgia played OSU and Boykins gave Dez Bryant fits. He has faired well vs some big WR

    That'd be a bonus then.. all the more reason he'll go in the second. But it'd be great to have a guy like him to play against all the speed receivers we have in our division and around the NFL as well.

    Chances are your right he will go in the 2nd but would not come as a shock if he fell to the 3rd just because of height and coming off the leg injury.

    I think the last time I was shocked about a guy falling it was Jason Witten when he fell to the 3rd rd of the draft. I wanted him in the 2nd and was surprised when he was there in the 3rd.

    I'm a big fan of Boykin, and I love to take him as a 3rd-4th corner. Im not confident he projects as a bonified starter at the next level.

    He broke his leg at the SR. Bowl did not work out at the combines

    Number listed for the 40 at Georgia show a 4.44

    That sounds about right, he is a legit 4.4 type of guy, but extremely quick with almodt no need to accelerate. I am a uga fan so im a bit biased. I have no doubt he can can become an nfl starter, he is a tough guy who is a baller.

    I've watched a lot of Stephon Gilmore, and I completely disagree. He isn't a good fit at all for us. I'm not a fan of his.

    Boykin has said that his favorite guy to cover was Alshon Jeffery. Says he likes going up against the big guys and proving his strength.
