3 things Baltimore Ravens must build on against the Packers
2. A strong start for Miles Boykin and Chris Moore:
The Baltimore Ravens wide receivers had an interesting first night of the NFL preseason. Antoine Wesley, who has been a very buzzed about undrafted free agent, did nothing to turn heads on Thursday night. Jaleel Scott made a big play and Willie Snead scored a touchdown. The two receivers who impressed the most however were Miles Boykin and Chris Moore.

Training camp has really become the Miles Boykin hype session. Boykin is perhaps the most exciting young player the Ravens have not named Marquise Brown or Lamar Jackson. Boykin had a strong start against the Jaguars. There was surely signs that he had some work to do, yet he made plays that got the fanbase incredibly excited. Boykin has a big frame and his quickness and speed make him a mismatch waiting to happen. The number one thing the Ravens should do in this game is to get Boykin some work with Lamar Jackson. Boykin has the potential to contribute in a big way right away. The Ravens must develop a connection between Boykin and Jackson. Boykin has to get a chance to show he’s a starting caliber rookie.
Chris Moore shined in the first preseason game and there is nothing new there. Moore always has looked great in the preseason, yet his reputation is still based on being a gunner on the punt team and blocking the occasional punt. The one thing that could help Moore is becoming a preferred target for Jackson. Compatibility with Jackson is a huge thing for the wide receivers. If Moore and Boykin can continue to impress in the preseason, they could be working towards something in the regular season.
