PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles have selected Georgia cornerback Brandon Boykin in the fourth round of the NFL draft.

The 5-foot-9.5, 182-pound Boykin, the 13rd overall pick, can play in the slot or outside and is also a skilled returner. He even played a little on offense for the Bulldogs.

Boykin is considered a strong tackler, quick and has the leaping ability to cover taller receivers. He had nine career interceptions, and returned four kickoffs and one punt for touchdowns.

Boykin scored a safety, returned a punt 92 yards for a touchdown and caught a 13-yard TD in a triple-overtime loss to Michigan State in the Outback Bowl.

He won the 2011 Paul Hornung Award as the nation’s most versatile player.
