Bulldawg to Watch: Senior CB Brandon Boykin (#2) - Named to SIX National Award Watch Lists


Here's the deal: Boykin plays Cornerback AND Kickoff Returner. And he's pretty darn good at both.

Cornerback

Last two years, Boykin:

  • started 24 of 26 games.
  • had 71 solo tackles and 33 assists.
  • had 6 interceptions, 9 pass breakups, and 2 QB pressures.

Kickoff Returner

Last two years, Boykin:

  • broke SEC record for return yards with 1,813
  • had 4 returns for touchdowns (3 of which were for 100 yards)

2011 Preseason Award Watch Lists

Boykin has been named to the following award watch lists:

  • Bednarik Award (most versatile player in CFB)
  • Nagurski Award (best defensive player in CFB)
  • Jim Thorpe Award (best defensive back in CFB)
  • Paul Hornung Award (most versatile player in CFB)
  • CFPA Defensive Back Tropy
  • CFPA Kickoff Returner Trophy

Needless to say, I'll have my eye on #2 when KM is directing the O. I'm sure he will too.

Check out the Jump for some ridiculous combine stats

40 yard dash = 4.44 (4.35 was his low time)

NFL Shuffle = 3.97 (2nd best on team)

Broad Jump = 11' 4" (best on team)

Vertical Jump = 41" (best on team)
