TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin hopes to improve on completing more "passes over the middle" this season.
"One of the main things I focused on was just passes over the middle, and Coach Cumbie and Meacham felt like a lot of the plays over the middle, we really didn’t complete," Boykin told ESPN. "We had a lot of throws outside. Thing like that, we’re just trying to get better. That’s where you make your money at the next level, and a dream of mine is to play at the next level." The TCU prospect made strides in the pocket in 2014, but still has room to improve in that department. Scouts will be watching for more consistent play from Boykin, as a passer this season. In 2014, Boykin threw for 3,714 yards and 30 touchdowns and rushed for 642 yards and eight scores. Jul 28 - 3:44 PM

NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter argues that TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin is the early favorite to get named to the 2015 All-American first-team.

He's not exactly going out on a limb, as the 6-foot-1, 208-pound Boykin threw for 3,714 yards and 30 touchdowns and rushed for 642 yards and eight scores in 2014. "Boykin isn't the biggest of quarterbacks (6-foot-2, 205 pounds), but if he uses his arm and feet to improve on his dual-threat numbers as a senior, he'll get a trip to New York City as a Heisman finalist -- and TCU might earn the CFB Playoff berth it narrowly missed in 2014," Reuter wrote. Boykin was the 2014 Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year and was additionally a finalist for the Walter Camp and Maxwell Awards.

Sports on Earth's Matt Brown grades TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin as the nation's No. 4 quarterback.

"Boykin was hardly flawless as a passer [last year], as he plenty of room for improvement in the pocket, but he's a dynamic quarterback surrounded by talent, including one of the nation's top receiving corps and offensive lines," Brown wrote. "No one will be taken by surprise by this offense in 2015, but that won't matter." The 6-foot-1, 208-pound Boykin threw for 3,714 yards and 30 touchdowns and rushed for 642 yards and eight scores in 2014. Boykin caught 26 passes for 204 yards two years ago; some believe he's a better fit at WR in the NFL.

TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin will "need to make strides to remove the 'project' label as a progression passer," writes ESPN's Mel Kiper.

The analyst ranks Boykin as the No. 4 senior quarterback in the land. "After pulling double duty in 2013 at both QB and wide receiver, Boykin transitioned to full-time signal-caller in 2014 and became a Heisman candidate," Kiper wrote. "He's an exceptional athlete with a strong arm, but anticipation is a problem and bad decisions were common." The 6-foot-1, 208-pound Boykin threw for 3,714 yards and 30 touchdowns and rushed for 642 yards and eight scores in 2014.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein passes along word that scouts "aren't yet sold" on redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin's "ability to transition from the TCU system into an NFL offense."

Perhaps no other passer improved as much as Boykin from the 2013 to the 2014 season. We saw him succeed inside and outside of structure. Yes, he could look more comfortable on a consistent basis inside of a closing pocket, but Boykin has displayed the skills on numerous occasions. We are excited for his 2015 season. Zierlein also notes scouts believe Boykin is closer to 6-foot tall, rather than his listed height of 6-foot-2. From what we can tell, Boykin is playing in a similar offense to the one Andy Dalton played in.

NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter reports that scouts don't question TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin's height, but they do question his build.

"The troubles Robert Griffin III has had staying on the field during his short career will lead teams to question whether Boykin's slight frame (6-1, 208) will hold up to a next-level pounding -- especially considering he's most effective when using his feet to challenge defenses," Reuter wrote. "He is capable of making plays from the pocket, however; a strong senior season and postseason work might be enough to convince a team to take a chance on him relatively early in the draft." Boykin threw for 3,714 yards and 30 touchdowns and rushed for 642 yards and eight scores in 2014. Before we even become nitpicky with his frame, we need to see Boykin polish off his passing skills and show an ability to work through multiple progressions.

ESPN's Max Olson believes TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin can work on his third down play this fall.

The 6-foot-2 Boykin threw for 3,714 yards and 30 touchdowns last season -- adding 642 rushing yards and eight ground scores -- but his QBR was 72.5, a none-elite showing good for No. 22 in FBS. He completed 55 percent of his passes on third downs, ranking 60th in FBS, with a 9/4 TD/TO ratio. Perhaps because of that, TCU ranked 93rd in FBS by scoring a touchdown on only 47 percent of third-down plays in the red zone. To be fair, the Frogs faced an inordinate amount of third-and-longs and we doubt that trend will continue in 2015. Yes, it appears that TCU's offense could be even better this fall.

TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin is the third-most versatile player in the nation, believes NFL Media.

The 6-foot-2 Boykin threw for 3,714 yards and 30 touchdowns last season, adding 642 rushing yards and eight ground scores. "The preseason Heisman Trophy hopeful isn't just one of the most athletic quarterbacks in the country. Just dig back to 2013, when he caught 26 passes for the Horned Frogs and became the first player in school history to post a 100-yard rushing game, a 100-yard receiving game and a 200-yard passing game in the same season," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Chase Goodbread. "His days of catching passes now are over, but Boykin is dangerous enough just throwing them." Boykin is a Heisman frontrunner whose draft stock is far from decided. He's ridiculously athletic, but his passing skills remain rudimentary and he must break the bad habit of staring down receivers.

TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin ability to become a "consistent passer" will be the "key to his NFL projection," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"Boykin is a fun player to evaluate because of his instinctive playmaking skills as both a runner and thrower, but whether or not he turns into a consistent passer is the key to his NFL projection," Brugler wrote. The TCU prospect was super productive for the Frogs in 2014, passing for 3,714 yards and 30 touchdowns, while rushing for 642 yards and 8 scores. While Boykin put up great numbers, Brugler points out that Boykin's "ball placement and decision-making are inconsistent with a bad habit of staring down receivers and forcing the ball into miniscule windows."

TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin was compared by NFL Media to Russell Wilson.

"As is typical for a college quarterback with his athleticism, Boykin doesn't hesitate to tuck the ball and do his damage on the ground when given the chance," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Chase Goodbread. "Wilson, of course, scrambles more to throw. But if Boykin reaches the pros, he'll take on more of a sense of self-preservation in time." The 6-foot-2 Boykin is a bit bigger than the 5-foot-11 Wilson, though TCU has perhaps tacked an inch onto Boykin's measurements. The TCU prospect threw for 3,714 yards and 30 touchdowns and rushed for 642 yards and eight scores in 2014.

NFL Media ranks TCU redshirt senior Trevone Boykin as their No.1 returning offensive player for 2015.

"He's the preseason favorite for the Heisman Trophy, and the reason TCU is poised to win the Big 12," NFL.com's Chase Goodbread wrote. The TCU prospect was quite productive for the Frogs, throwing for 3,901 yards with 707 yards on the ground, while accounting for 41 touchdowns in 2014. There is no reason Boykin shouldn't be able to produce another impressive season.

NFL.com's Mike Huguenin has TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin ranked as his No.1 Heisman Trophy candidate for 2015.

"Boykin was fourth in the Heisman voting last year and is the highest finisher to return to school. He also plays for a team that should be in the top five all season, which always helps when it comes to getting Heisman votes," Huguenin wrote. The TCU prospect threw for for 3,714 yards and 30 touchdowns, while running for 642 yards and eight more scores on the ground in 2014. If he can put together another dominant season in 2015, there's potential for a Heisman Trophy and a shot to go in the first-round of the 2016 draft.

TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin underwent minor wrist surgery on his non-throwing hand last month.

Boykin played with the injury last season. Perhaps no quarterback improved more last season than Boykin. he displayed the ability to win inside and outside of structure and has an arm to his throws at every level of the field. If his accuracy and movement become more refined, watch out.

TCU redshirt senior QB Trevone Boykin needs to show "more consistency and accuracy" to be a first round prospect, according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"Boykin is going to be a hotly debated prospect. I need to see more consistency and accuracy before he makes my 1st round," Brugler tweeted. In his first full year as TCU's starting quarterback, he finished fourth in the Heisman voting after putting up 3,714 yards passing and 30 TD passes. If the TCU prospect can refine his game, he has a shot to be a first-round prospect, as well as, a potential Heisman Trophy winner.

TCU redshirt junior QB Trevone Boykin will undergo surgery in April to repair a fractured wrist.

Before Horned Frogs fans keel over, we should be clear on two things: Surgery will repair the injury to Boykin's left (non-throwing) wrist that he sustained in October, and the fracture is being described as small. He didn't miss a snap because of the injury, though he will miss a portion of spring practices while rehabbing, a process that is expected to take five weeks. Boykin, fortunately, is expected be 100 percent by voluntary summer workouts.
