Boykin appeared to lose significant playing time to rookie Davante Adams after a bad drop, and he may be hard-pressed to see a significant amount of snaps moving forward after the rookie did an impressive job while on the field. Boykin didn't receive a target in Week 1 after drawing Richard Sherman in coverage all game. He'll hope to put something positive together in Week 3 against the Lions.
His comments Tuesday continue to show the same conviction and seem to indicate Boykin has held off rookie
"Clearly, Jarrett Boykin has taken the next step," McCarthy said. "I just love the way he plays. He's had an excellent camp. He's physical, his toughness, he's relentless. I think he's exceptional at the top of his route. You see his strength and balance to separate from a DB."
Adams has totaled 86 snaps in the preseason, which leads all of the team's wide receivers. He has four catches for 50 yards compared to Boykin's three catches for 21 yards. But like plenty of rookies, he hasn't always been consistent.
"I'm not sure what a typical rookie looks like," offensive coordinator Tom Clements said Monday in response to a question about Adams. "He's improving. He's working hard. There's a lot of positive things."
Adams, a second-round pick out of Fresno State, "made a nice catch on a post for 14 yards when it looked like Rams cornerback Marcus Roberson might have a play on the ball," the report said. Later, on a stop-and-go move, Adams gained 14 yards and "was one broken tackle away from a touchdown."
Boykin, 24, caught 49 passes for 681 yards and three touchdowns last season.

The Packers are going with Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb as the Top 2 guys, but Boykin is the No. 3 receiver heading into training camp. Of the rookies, Adams is likely to pose the most competition, but Boykin got extensive playing time in 2013 when Cobb was out with a leg injury.
Boykin finished 2013 with 49 catches for 681 yards and three touchdowns.
