Xavius Boyd, Jackson's teammate, is a guy I could see us targeting. About the same size as Navorro coming out of Penn State, considered to small for OLB (6'2, 240). We could move him inside. He was the Sun Belt's Defensive Player of the year. Had 103 tackles (15.5 for loss) with 8.5 sacks.
You think Boyd is as good or better in coverage than Wilhoite ?
I won't compare the 2. But when I get home I'll post the cutups of Andrew Jackson (they only have ones of Jackson and not Boyd and they're from 2012), you'll have to look for #13, he lines up typically next to Jackson. Doesn't look as strong as Jackson but more athletic. You also have to remember, he really came into his own this year. But he definitely looks like a guy who can play in the NFL. And just as an added tidbit, the 49ers met with Boyd at the East/West game, so they've at least paid attention to him also.
