Player Overview

Heading into the 2014 season, TCU was in the midst of a quarterback battle, but entering the 2015 season there was no question Boykin was 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 and followed that up with nearly identical numbers over the 2015 regular season (40 total touchdowns, including 31 passing) while completing 64.9% of his passes and totaling 4,187 all-purpose yards.

A shocking arrest for striking a police officer following a fight at a bar just two days before the Alamo Bowl which would have concluded Boykin's career at TCU has his stock in flux, making the interviews he'll face at the Combine perhaps even more important to his potential NFL career than anything he's shown on the field to this point.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Boasts legitimate NFL athleticism, including terrific balance, agility and burst to make defenders miss as a runner. Possesses above average arm strength, driving the ball downfield with an effortless release and showing intriguing touch, as well. Maintains that he's "fully committed" to playing QB in the NFL (and was invited as a QB to the Combine) but has stated his willingness to try other positions if asked. Though suspended for the Alamo Bowl, Boykin will be "welcome back on this campus with open arms" for TCU's Pro Day, according to athletic director Chris Del Conte, an indication of the respect the quarterback had gained prior to his arrest.

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. Comes from a relatively simple offense which limited his reads and the types of passes in which he attempted, leaving Boykin a project as an NFL quarterback. Possesses the athleticism to potentially project to receiver or running back but has no experience at these positions. Arrested for public intoxication, resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer December 31, abruptly ending his collegiate career.

IN OUR VIEW: Boykin is a fun player to evaluate because of his instinctive playmaking skills as both a runner and thrower, but his struggles with consistency as a passer and disappointing suspension raise real questions about whether he can make it at the next level.

12/31/2015 - TCU QB Boykin suspended after arrest...TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin was arrested and accused of assaulting a patrol officer following a fight at Pat O'Brien's in San Antonio early Thursday morning. He was charged with public intoxication, resisting arrest and assaulting a public official, which a third-degree felony. TCU suspended Boykin following the arrest. It's a major challenge for the Horned Frogs to lose the senior starting quarterback days before No. 11 TCU plays No. 15 Oregon in the Alamo Bowl. Separate NBC TV affiliates in Texas reported bar patrons recognized Boykin and began "trash talking." Boykin took a swing but he missed his target and struck a bar employee. Police apparently tried to intervene when Boykin hit an officer. Multiple officers threatened to taser Boykin before he finally subsided, NBC San Antonio reported. The school did not comment on Boykin's status for Saturday's game. Boykin finished 10th in Heisman Trophy balloting. He had 3,574 yards passing and 31 touchdowns. - The Sports Xchange
