STRENGTHS: Terrific physical gifts with explosive athleticism and above average arm strength as the ball shoots off his hand.
WEAKNESSES: Lacks ideal height. Ball placement and decision-making are inconsistent with a bad habit of staring down receivers and forcing the ball into miniscule windows.
IN OUR VIEW: Boykin is a fun player to evaluate because of his instinctive playmaking skills as both a runner and thrower, but whether or not he turns into a consistent passer is the key to his NFL projection.

Heading into the 2014 season, TCU was in the midst of a quarterback battle, but entering the 2015 season there is no question Boykin is the man for the Horned Frogs.
He was responsible for 41 total touchdowns as a junior (33 passing, 8 rushing), completing 61.2 percent of his passes and accounting for 4,608 total yards, earning Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year honors.
