John boycott is a rarity in pro football. Standing 5'10 tall weighing over 200 pounds and being of Caucasian descent doesn't usually land you in a pro secondary.
Boyett however is a reincarnation of Jason seahorn. This kid Boyett is a baller. He was a highly decorated safety at the university of Oregon and was on his way to being a nfl safety. His issues with Alcohol and injuries set him back.
Boyett will be the best free safety in the cfl if he is given a chance. He can and will also play halfback as he is very aggressive and just a natural footballer. Boycott has tremendous football instincts and plays big like a 6'3 guy and hits like a 240 pound linebacker.
If not for off field issues he would be a starting nfl safety.
Boyett is already on the active roster after being recently signed. My guess is that they saw the hunger in his eyes and the passion in his play.
This guy is a keeper and if he replaces Gavins today I predict he will intercept a pass or make a bone crushing hit forcing a turnover.
Excellent pickup by desjardins
