Eagles Take Cornerback Brandon Boykin In Fourth RoundBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, Eagles Draft, NFLDraft Saturday, April 28th, 2012
Listed at 5-9, 183 lbs, Boykin is a quick corner with excellent leaping ability. He had nine career interceptions in 38 starts during his career at Georgia. He’ll be hard pressed to leap past Joselio Hanson, Curtis Marsh, and Trevard Lindley for playing time, but he has a chance to develop into a decent slot cornerback.
Boykin’s best chance to impact the Eagles in 2012 will be as a return man. He was an explosive returner in college, and the Eagles are in desperate need of an impactful kickoff returner. He could also take over the punt return duties from DeSean Jackson, should the Eagles not want to put their star receiver’s health at risk.
