Brandon Boykin Scouting Report
Brandon Boykin
Brandon Boykin - Georgia (HT: 5-10 - WT: 183)
Combine 40: N/A - Position Rank: NR of 10

Positives: Has pretty good speed for the position... Is a good wrap-up tackler, does not miss a lot of opportunities in open space... Has good kickoff return skills, ran four kicks back for touchdowns in 2009 and 2010 combined... Recorded six interceptions in 2009 and 2010 combined, including one against UCF in the Liberty Bowl, makes the most of opportunities to make plays at the ball... Durability does not seem to be an issue, has not missed substantial time due to injury... Has excellent leaping ability, is able to cover larger receivers in most situations despite size... Athleticism is above-average, has fluid hips and quick feet, change-of-direction skills are also above-average... Will be a very good slot defender, lines up against slot receivers regularly, off-man coverage skills are very good.

Negatives: Looks smaller than listed height, at least an inch below ideal height... Gives too much cushion on out routes, protects himself against double moves, but allows receivers too much space to catch the ball underneath... Often looks into the backfield for too long, which makes him susceptible to picks on crossing patterns over the middle... Does not get off blocks well, not the most physical corner... Leaves feet too often when tackling, needs to do a better job of driving through tackles with his legs... Is not the most versatile corner due to speed and below-average strength, may be relegated to covering slot receivers in the NFL.
