  Moving to 2022, Charlotte must replace all three starting linebackers from a season ago, with Martin, Tyler Murray and Justin Whisenhunt moving on from the program. While there's a feeling of uncertainty with so many new faces, Healy feels confident in Boykins' abilities, labeling him as the "dude" of the linebacker corps and praising his work ethic throughout the offseason. Linebackers coach Adam Braithwaite echoed those comments, posing a challenge to the redshirt junior during the offseason. "He said, 'What do you want to be," Derek Boykins said, quoting Braithwaite. "You can be an All-American or you can be on the bench. It's up to you."

Boykins' work ethic both on the field and in the weight room has caught the attention of the staff and fellow players, but taking that next step to be a leader has been an entirely new experience - one he's needed his new teammates for. The 49ers added Wake Forest transfer Chase Monroe and freshman Reid Williford to join the returning group of Boykins, Burden, Prince Bemah and B.J. Turner, who combined for less than 400 total defensive snaps last season. "It's been hard. Personally, I'm not a vocal dude, so I've had to step out of my comfort box and elaborate on some stuff," Boykins said about the new leadership role. "Having Chase (Monroe) in the room has helped me a lot because he's a pro. But I think I'm finally stepping up to be who I need to be." - Charlotte Observer
