Brandon Boykin Interviewed By Falcons At Senior Bowl, According To Report

If the Atlanta Falcons can't have Georgia Bulldogs defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, at least they can have one of his star pupils, am I right? D. Orlando Ledbetter reports the 2012 Senior Bowl saw the Falcons interview former UGA cornerback Brandon Boykin, and that the Panthers and Eagles both also showed interest.

An interview isn't exactly a declaration that Atlanta's going to draft a player, but it is a decent sign they're keeping their options open at improving a particular position. If more news emerges about the Falcons working out defensive backs, keep the position group in mind on draft day. With Brent Grimes' contract up, it would certainly make sense.

Boykin's expected to be selected in the second or third round, and, hey! We're in luck! The Falcons actually have those. Last year, the Birds picked UGA linebacker Akeem Dent with a mid-rounder. Boykin's also proficient at returning kicks and playing a little offense, all of which could become opportunities with the Falcons.
