*Miles Boykin – Noteworthy
Ten pass-catchers who boosted their stock at Combine not named Metcalf, Fant: Miles Boykin, WR, Notre Dame – Boykin tops this list due to his last name but given how high and far he leaped Saturday, one could argue he was the day’s biggest “riser” anyway. A prototypically-built split end at 6-4, 220 pounds, Boykin showed off his ability to play above the rim by posting a ridiculous 43.5″ vertical jump which tied with Missouri’s Emanuel Hall for the highest recorded thus far this year at the Combine. Boykin finished one inch behind Hall for the best standing broad jump so far (Boykin had a 11’8″) and he showed excellent timed speed, as well, clocking in at 4.43 seconds. What was particularly impressive about Boykin’s day was the sudden change of direction in the shuttle drills he demonstrated, leading all pass-catchers with a 6.77 second 3-cone drill and finishing second in the short shuttle at 4.07 seconds – remarkable times for a receiver of Boykin’s length. – Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
