Jarrett Boykin

Postby widetrak21 » Wed Aug 22, 2012 12:24 am

- Boy if he just can't crack that wr core (more than understandable), even though he's been balling, we need him on speed dial. He'd take Meiers job as a rookie I beiieve. And we all know GB can evaludate WR's.

Found this in today's Packers training camp report re: Jarrett Boykin

"Day after day, practice after practice, a guy who continually catches every ball thrown to him is WR Jarrett Boykin. If there were an award for Mr. Consistency, the rookie from Virginia Tech would win it hands down. Boykin, 6-2 and 218 pounds, made the squad through a tryout during rookie orientation. He had been signed by Jacksonville after the draft, but was cut three days later. The Packers took a chance on him and they're glad they did.

Boykin, who caught a single-season, school-record 61 passes last season was invited to the combine, but he ran in the 4.7s because of an injury he declined to identify. He ran 4.5 at his pro day, but that wasn't fast enough for scouts and he wasn't drafted.

The most impressive part about Boykin is his route running. He lacks great speed but uses an economy of motion to get open. In the Cleveland loss Thursday, he was one of the few standouts, catching five passes for 63 yards. He leads the team in receptions with eight for 84.

This week, he has been every bit as good, always snaring balls with his hands and never body-catching. He might not make the team, but somebody is going to want him after this camp is over."
