Brandon Boykin a Steeler

Not huge news, and this forum is rather 'empty' but figured it was at least worth mentioning. To me, Boykin is well worth the conditional 5th Rd pick (turns to a 4th Rd pick depending on his total playing time). And even if it is a 4th, that's more than likely a good sign, as it likely means he's good enough to see the field quite a bit.

Anyway, what are you all's thoughts? Yeah, he's short (5' 9 1/2"), but that didn't prevent him from securing 6 picks a couple of years ago, and with the success of other short corners like Chris Williams and Tim Jennings, I see no reason he can't play on the outside for us.

I will admit I haven't watch Boykin as an Eagle. If this guy is as tough as emphasize, then he will be a welcome addition to the Steelers secondary to improve our defense a bit and start inch our way out of the 20s ranking when it comes to the defense.
