According to Justin Melo of The Draft Network, the San Francisco 49ers hosted Coastal Carolina cornerback Lance Boykin on a pre-draft visit.

Boykin registered a career-high 58 tackles, two tackles for a loss, a sack, eight passes defensed, two interceptions, and a forced fumble through 11 game appearances as a senior in 2022, per Sports Reference.

Boykin was a second-team All-Sun Belt Conference selection as a senior. His eight pass breakups led the team and his two interceptions tied for the team lead. The defender recorded 82 tackles, 3.5 tackles for a loss, two sacks, 12 passes defensed, five interceptions, and a forced fumble through the past two seasons with the Chanticleers, after transferring from Old Dominion.

Boykin is from High Point, NC. He earned a pre-draft grade of 5.67 from, which equates to a "chance to make a roster or practice squad," per the site's 8-point grading scale.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, the 6-2 and 200-pound Boykin had a broad jump of 124 inches and 13 reps in the bench press. His other measurables include an arm length of 32 3/8 inches and hands measuring 9 3/4 inches.

Boykin had a 40-time of 4.72 seconds, a vertical jump of 30.50 inches, and a 20-yard shuttle time of 4.39 seconds at his personal Pro Day.

"Long-legged, linear cornerback with the size and length to disrupt the catch point, but he lacks the athletic fluidity and short-area twitch to get there on time," wrote Lance Zierlein of in his draft profile of the player. "Boykin will struggle to stay connected with NFL route runners as a man defender and lacks the desired long speed to prevent burners from flying by him. He'll need to play in a zone-based cover scheme and has the physical traits that could have teams trying him as a safety."

49ers demolish Giants in Week 3 victory: Key takeaways

By Marc Adams

It's hard to think of the New York Giants without some painful postseason memories. And that's why it's always so sweet to beat them soundly. And the San Francisco 49ers did just that on Thursday night, winning 30-12, and improving to 3-0 on the season. Although the score was relatively close at halftime, it wasn't as close statistically. And by the end of the game, it was even more lopsided—on the scoreboard and on the stat sheet. When you have more YAC (yards after the catch/contact) than the other team has total yards, you've thoroughly beaten your opponent. The Giants had 150 yards of total
