FAIRHOPE, Ala – Georgia cornerback Brandon Boykin had a strong first practice for the South team on Monday.
He drew praise for WashingtonRedskins defensive back coach Raheem Morris (formerly of the Tampa Bay Bucs) after breaking up one pass.
“Nice job Boykin, way to get down hill,” Morris said.
Boykin has interviewed with seven teams already, including the Falcons, Carolina and Philadelphia.
He felt his first day of practice went well.
“I was kind of getting acclimated back in that football shape,” Boykin said. “It was my first time putting the pads on in about a month.”
He had seven to eight interivews already. He’s chatted with the Falcons, Carolina and Philadelphia.
