No, not that draft.
Boyko is from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. He is the top-rated prospect in the CFL Draft.
“Yeah, it’d be cool (to be the No. 1 pick), but I think it’d be cooler to be a really high pick in the NFL Draft,” Boyko said. “Either way, I’m incredibly blessed to be in the position I’m in and I’m loving it.
Boyko (6-5, 310) was second-team all-Mountain West Conference as a senior, when he split time between left tackle and left guard, and a second-team choice as a junior, when he played only left tackle. He allowed one sack in each of those seasons, according to the Rebels’ coaches.
He’s not new to switching positions. In high school, he played quarterback.
“Different and fun. It’s been a real fun experience. I’ve had the opportunity to play different positions, and you gain perspectives on what you’re doing and how you do it and a greater understanding of the game,” he said. “It’s been a lot of fun. I’ve enjoyed everything. I enjoy playing offensive line. It really grew on me. Switching from quarterback to offensive line was a little different at first but it really grew on me and I’m loving it. I’m in a great position and I want to keep that going.”
Boyko is considered a late-round prospect by the NFL’s head scout, Dave-Te’ Thomas.
