Eagles rookie Boykin could leapfrog Hanson

+

Hoffman's daily fluff piece. The reason I am FS'ing it is this: "The point is, the position is complicated. And while Reid says, "[he's] getting better every day, so that gap's narrowed," the reality is that Hanson really knows what he is doing. But it is also true that Boykin is the better natural athlete." I like Hanson. I really do. In another life, one where my fat ass would win a proverbial sports lottery and somehow make it to the NFL, Hanson's trek to get there would probably be the same one I would have to endure. That being typed on the InterWebs, 1- Boykin has the higher ceiling, especially long term, and it won't take long for him to get to the same point as the best Hanson has to offer and 2- keeping Boykin for the slot and cutting Hanson lets you keep a more talented player OVERALL at a different position, ie Tapp or McNutt (or for those of you who have this massive infatuation with Cash) or Harris.
