Pos: 
Large, strong receiver who turned in some fantastic testing numbers during the combine. Sized well, plays big football and wins out in battles. Takes a pounding and holds onto the throw. Quickly releases off the line into pass routes, fights with his hands to separate from defenders and nicely adjusts to the errant throw. Effectively uses the sidelines, generally makes the reception with his hands away from his frame and consistently comes away with the difficult grab.
Neg: 
Does not show the ability to get deep separation despite his 40 time. Stiff. Average vertical receiver.
Analysis: 
On film, Boykin looks like a big-bodied pass catcher best on short or intermediate routes and displays little ability to get down the field. Boykin then went to the combine and turned in an impressive performance, which now leads people to believe he has great upside. Likely to be overdrafted, Boykin must transition his combine testing numbers to the field and do more than just physically beat down defenders for the reception.
