Philadelphia Eagles special teams coach Bobby April announced yesterday that Brandon Boykin -- a rookie cornerback from Georgia -- is in line to start as the team’s kickoff returner.

Boykin -- last season’s Paul Hornung Award winner, as the most versatile player in college football -- slipped into the fourth round of the NFL draft after he broke his leg covering a kick in the Senior Bowl, which prevented him from participating in the NFL combine and other pre-draft workouts.

But he told me recently that Philadelphia was a perfect landing spot because, after participating in two minicamps, he realized he would have the opportunity to contribute immediately as a kick returner and nickelback.
