John Boyett: Video Highlights for Former Oregon FS

For three seasons, John Boyett was the leader of Oregon’s secondary. He provided plenty of highlight-reel hits, interceptions and pass breakups over that time, so finding worthy video was an easy task.

Unfortunately for Boyett, he was forced to have season-ending knee surgery in September of 2012 to repair partial tears to both patellar tendons. He played with the injuries for the majority of his junior year, as he told the Napa Valley Register:

I’ve had a lingering injury that I played through all last year. The hope was, through different treatments and certain types of rehab during this past offseason, they would heal up and I’d be ready to go for my senior year.

That was not the case, as he played in just one game his senior season—against Arkansas State in the season opener.

At 5'10" and 204 pounds, some teams may consider him undersized. He does not play that way, however. Boyett recorded 278 total tackles, intercepted 10 passes and defended 30 more in three-plus seasons at Oregon.

An accurate NFL comparison based on his style of play and measurables would be Troy Polamalu. Is he a future NFL Pro Bowler? Who knows? But his game sure does resemble that of the former USC Trojan.

Here are some of Boyett's best highlights throughout the years.
