The 2012 Paul Hornung Award winner, Brandon Boykin, has been invited to the NFL combine in Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Boykin will join more than 300 top prospects for the 2012 NFL draft who will be invited to participate at the combine in Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. This event is a vital step in athletes achieving their NFL dreams. Follow this event on NFL.com and NFL Network.

The combine takes place from February 22nd to the 28th.

In 2009, Boykin became the first player in SEC history to return two kickoffs of 100 yards or more in a single season. In the Independence Bowl against Texas A&M, he set a school record and tied an SEC record with his third kickoff return for a TD on the season (81 yards).

Boykin was all-everything for the Bulldogs and was rewarded with the 2012 Paul Hornung Award for the most versatile player in the country.

After his sophomore year, the Bulldogs fired defensive coordinator Willie Martinez and hired Todd Grantham. Grantham brought his 3-4 defense to Athens and the 2010 season was one of learning. Boykin finally had stability in 2011 and the defense seemed to respond, as it was one of the best in the country.  

Boykin was no exception, as he was the heart of that defense...
