This made Brandon Boykin go, "Um, ah hem..."



Boykin tied for 2nd in the NFL last season in INTs, despite playing just over 50% of the Eagles' defensive snaps. He also had more INTs in 2013 than the Giants' new top 3 CBs combined in 2013, despite playing almost 2000 fewer snaps.

Cowboys slot corner Orlando Scandrick and whoever the Redskins' crappy slot corner will be this season could not be reached for comment.

See what happens when you move the draft back to May, NFL?
