After sitting back during the entire second round of the draft, the Baltimore Ravens couldn’t help but follow up their pick at 85 overall with another selection eight picks later. The Ravens agreed to a trade with the Minnesota Vikings, sending their third-round pick and two sixth-round selections to draft WR Miles Boykin.

Lingering on his tape can cause excessive focus on his inconsistencies and areas of improvement, but projecting his traits with additional coaching makes more sense. Boykin’s size, length and athleticism offers exciting potential as an outside receiver with mismatch potential, but he will have to learn how to counter press, improve his routes and become more competitive when the ball is in the air. His size won’t matter if he doesn’t learn to impose it on others. If that happens, he’ll become an eventual starter with a high ceiling. — Lance Zierlein

In his final season with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Boykin finally received decent quarterback play, which he literally ran with. As a senior, Boykin finished with 59 receptions for 872 yards and eight touchdowns.

Now, QB Lamar Jackson has a litany of receiving talent as Boykin joins a solid receiving unit, including Marquise Brown, Willie Snead IV, Seth Roberts and Chris Moore.
