Strengths

Boykin is the perfect athlete for the corner position. He makes hip flipping and backpedaling look natural, and uses elasticity in his legs and the rest of his body to mirror closely in man coverage. Although he is shorter than many corners, he rose to grab passes and adjusted his body to intercept tipped balls numerous times at Georgia. He is a burner as a runner and can recover to run with almost any receiver in the NFL. He can trail receivers well throughout their routes and effortlessly flip his hips to stay with them in transition. He is a cover corner who can also play well up-close despite his smaller stature.

Weaknesses

Boykin is a smaller corner, measuring in at 5-foot-9, 181 pounds. He struggles when tackling and has to drag players down. He isn't very strong and can fall off players when attempting to tackle. He is sometimes slow to react to balls even if he is running side by side with a receiver. He will likely struggle against bigger, more physical wideouts in the league.
