Georgia's Brandon Boykin won the the Paul Hornung Award this past season as the most versatile player in college football.
It should come as no surprise to anybody then that Boykin's physical skills have caught everyone's attention this week at the Senior Bowl. Kevin Weidl of ESPN Scouts Inc. lists Boykin as one of the players whose stock is up this week.
This is what Weidl had to say about Boykin:
"He is fluid and explosive, and he showed off good top-end speed and an extra gear to recover and make up ground when in a trail position. Boykin flashed the ability to turn his hips and run with receivers to limit separation, and even when he was beaten initially, he was able to recover. There are some concerns about his overall instincts and playmaking ability, whether he is a better athlete than football player at this point, but Boykin was one of the top performers on either roster."
Along with Boykin, some of the other SEC players at the Senior Bowl who've established themselves as solid Day 2 picks, according to the ESPN Scouts Inc. team, are Arkansas receiver Joe Adams, South Carolina safety Antonio Allen and LSU safety Brandon Taylor.
