2015 NFL DRAFT

Georgia CB Boykin schedules April 9 pro day

Georgia cornerback Brandon Boykin will work out for scouts on campus on April 9, NFLDraftScout.com has learned. The All-SEC prospect had been unable to participate in the scouting combine or his school's March 5 pro day after suffering a broken right leg at the Senior Bowl.

Though the timing of Boykin's injury was unfortunate, the injury itself wasn't nearly as bad as it sounds. Boykin suffered a small fracture and it didn't come near a joint, making his recovery a relatively quick one andconsidered unlikely to limit his rookie season in any way.

Boykin, currently ranked as NFLDraftScout.com's No. 9 cornerback prospect forthe 2012 draft,is considered one of the elite athletes at the position so if he is indeed100 percent recovered from the injury he couldput up numbers in the workout that rivalsome of the top efforts put forth by his peers.

The playmaking Boykin left Georgia with nine career interceptions and is a dynamic kick-returner, as well, having taken back three kickoffs back 100 yards for touchdowns over his career -- the only player in SEC history to have scored three times from this distance.

Boykinis being projected by some as a possible first-round prospect. My colleague Pete Priscohas him slated to go 30th overall to the SanFrancisco 49ersin hislatest mock draft.
