Boykin has shown marked improvement during training camp, Jamison Hensley of reports.

Finding a reliable option opposite Marquise Brown has been a major storyline for the Ravens all offseason. Veteran Dez Bryant worked out for the team last week but left without a contract, and it's possible that Boykin's improved play was a factor in Baltimore electing not to sign the three-time Pro Bowler. Boykin had an underwhelming rookie season, drawing just 22 targets while playing fewer snaps than Seth Roberts. Though Boykin was productive when targeted, catching three touchdowns and averaging 9.0 YPT, his lack of looks per snap suggests that he has some work to do in terms of getting open in coverage. Boykin is extremely athletic, and if his maturation as a receiver starts to match up with his raw gifts, he can be an impact player in Baltimore's low-volume, high-efficiency passing attack.
