Bio

Brandon Boykin is entering his third season with the Philadelphia Eagles, quickly earning high praise as a productive nickel cornerback. Despite limited snaps, Boykin finished the 2013 NFL season tied for second in interceptions with six – and two of them secured Eagles wins, including the NFC East division crown. On May 11, 2012, he signed a four-year rookie contract.

Early Years & College

Boykin was born in Fayetteville, Ga., on July 30, 1990. Boykin attended Fayette County High and led the school to its first undefeated season in 20 years. After graduating, Boykin starred at the University of Georgia, where he was a multi-purpose threat as a cornerback, return man, running back and Wildcat specialist. He set Georgia records for kickoff return yards (2,663) and kickoff return touchdowns (4) before earning the Paul Hornung Award in 2011, given to the most versatile player in college football.

Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles drafted Boykin in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL draft (123rd overall). Following an impressive training camp, Boykin earned a role as the team’s nickel corner and racked up 25 tackles, one sack and a forced fumble, while gaining a reputation as an explosive kick returner. Boykin followed up a stellar rookie season with an even better sophomore campaign, leading the Eagles with six interceptions, including a pick of Kyle Orton to ice Philadelphia’s first division title since 2010. He played in 16 games (two starts) and recorded 59 tackles, one sack, six interceptions and one forced fumble. He has played in all 32 regular-season games in his first two seasons in Philadelphia.
