Green Bay Packers: Is Jarrett Boykin the Next Antonio Freeman?
He didn’t exactly put up Hall-of-Fame numbers during his freshmen and sophomore seasons in the NFL, but believe you me, it would be a really bad idea for the league’s defensive coordinators to sleep on blooming wideout Jarrett Boykin.
An x-factor of the Virginia Tech Hokies‘ high-flying aerial assault, Boykin annually tormented ACC defenses during his four years of collegiate play with blazing speed, ridiculous balls skills and a mastery of gridiron intellect that forced collective defensive efforts to burn overtime studying his film, dissecting his scouting report and employing high-profile coverage packages to account for his shrewd delivery deep down field.
Boykin is an athletic receiver with a clutch pair of mitts and a wide reception circumference that make him a very attractive target in pressing red-zone situations. The man can split and manipulate coverages and has proven to be extremely elusive after the catch. He is also explosive off the line, very flexible in tight-coverage situations and can easily separate himself from the league’s most elite defensive backs.
He was only targeted six times during his freshman season in the league and made five receptions for 27 yards, with a long of nine yards and no touchdowns. But Boykin detonated during his sophomore season, targeted 82 times and made 49 receptions for 681 yards, a long of 52 and punctured the end zone with three touchdowns.
It would seem that Green Bay Packers gunslinging signal caller Aaron Rodgers thinks firing the football in Boykin’s direction is a voltaic tactic. The NFC had best watch out. The two are just getting warmed up. The third-year wideout’s reckoning 6-foot-2, 218-pound presence is undeniable. His game is lights-out and it remains in its infancy stage. Boykin packs the artillery to eclipse Lambeau legend Antonio Freeman, and if you doze on the sleeping flanker, he will strip you of your dignity.
