Panthers selected North Carolina S Tre Boston with the No. 128 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.
Boston (5-foot-11 5/8, 204) was a versatile, high-energy playmaker in the Tar Heels' secondary, seeing action at both corner and safety and recording 12 career interceptions. He has outstanding ball skills. Boston will only be 22 during his rookie season, and offers starting-caliber upside if given time to perfect his craft at one position. Due to 4.59 speed, Boston's most likely NFL home is free safety. He needs to improve as an in-space tackler. May 10 - 2:29 PM

UNC senior S Tre Boston accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Boston is a safety prospect with the speed and hands to have been capable of playing either wide receiver or cornerback. It goes without saying that he has great range and good ball skills. Boston's tackling can get sloppy because he'll lower his head instead of wrapping up, so it will be interesting to see where he's placed at the next level. We'd guess free safety, but an organization might get clever and try to shift Boston back to the outside.

UNC senior S Tre Boston returned an interception for 21 yards in Thursday's loss against Miami.

The Tar Heel secondary held Hurricanes' quarterback Stephen Morris without a touchdown pass and picked off four of his attempts. Boston, a Florida native, is up to three interceptions on the year. Draft insider Tony Pauline gave Boston a fifth- to sixth-round grade heading into the 2013 season; we like Boston's size, speed and coverage ability and think his stock has risen.

Draft insider Tony Pauline listed UNC senior S Tre Boston as a fifth- to sixth-round pick heading into the 2013 season.

Boston is a "developing defensive back with potential at corner or safety," Pauline writes. "Quick, fast in a straight line and aggressive. Really better facing the action." Although the group might be weaker than the safeties entering the 2013 draft, we think Boston could be one of the top seniors at the position.

ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper ranks UNC's Tre Boston as the top senior S heading into the 2013 season.

"I might be a little higher on Boston than some others, but I really like his ability to cover," Kiper writes. "Like a lot of college safeties, he spent time at cornerback and wide receiver in high school. But the thing about Boston is he could have stayed at corner for the Heels and been pretty good, but he has the size and range to be really good at safety."
