The Panthers, who lost top cornerback Josh Norman to free agency, drafted cornerbacks in the second, third and fifth rounds of the draft.

The 25-year-old Boykin spent last season with the Pittsburgh Steelers and started one game.

Boykin was drafted in the fourth round out of Georgia by the Philadelphia Eagles. He earned a reputation as a dangerous return man on special teams and also played a solid defense recording eight interceptions with the Eagles.

He was traded to the Steelers before the 2015 season.
