I decided to make a post to try and get peoples opinions on some college players we haven't heard much about (some who may not be coming out this year) but who could become impact players at the next level.
I'll start it off with two I had in mind:
Brandon Boykin (CB, Georgia): I've seen this guy show up on some mock drafts, and I think he is an interesting talent. Anyone who watched the Outback Bowl against MSU knows this guy was all over the field. Officially listed as a CB, he has the athleticism to provide impact at multiple positions on the field. He is a good returner and would likely be a good guy to have on coverage ST as well. He is listed at 5' 10" so he is not big, but is also expected to be a contributor in the secondary of whichever team drafts him. I wouldn't mind seeing the Lions make a move on him in the mid to late rounds if he is still on the board. He reminds me of a Stefan Logan type player, but with the ability to have a greater non-special teams role.
Brad Wing (P, LSU): I know he isn't coming out this year, but this guy seems to have a special skill set. I think that punter is an often overlooked position, but they can be difference makers (look a the impact the 49er's punter has). Wing may have the most unique skill set (a lot of which was developed from playing Australian Rules apparently) I've ever seen at this position and I would love to see the Lions procure him when he does make the jump to the NFL.
