News: Boykin has all but locked up the Packers' No. 3 wide receiver spot, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. "Clearly, Jarrett Boykin has taken the next step," coach Mike 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." Impact: Although his output (three catches for 21 yards) doesn't reflect McCarthy's sentiments, Boykin is the frontrunner to line up with Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb in three-wide sets, or the Packers' most prevalent grouping last season. Meanwhile, Boykin's primary competition, Davante Adams -- four receptions for 50 yards this preseason -- has struggled with consistency in his initial NFL camp. Once the regular season rolls around, Boykin is expected to hold more utility than Adams until McCarthy unleashes the rookie, and maybe not even then.(RotoWire, )
