3. Miles Boykin, WR, Ravens

A former third-round pick, Miles Boykin has undoubtedly fallen short of expectations in Baltimore. Despite being handed opportunity after opportunity over his first two years, Boykin failed to maximize his playing time.

He entered the year with just 32 catches for 464 yards in 32 career games. Despite starting 24 games over his first two seasons, Boykin was averaging just a catch per game.

Needless to say, he found himself slipping down the depth chart in the summer and was even on the roster bubble at a point. Boykin ended up on the injured reserve to start the season, and since he’s returned, he’s done next to nothing.

Boykin has appeared in five games this season hauling in just one catch for six yards on his only target. He’s played only 32 total offensive snaps as he’s been a non-factor in a revamped receiving corps.

The former Notre Dame standout has found a semi-regular role on special teams and even earned the nod over James Proche this past Thursday primarily due to his contributions on special teams.

But the Ravens have plenty of special-teams standouts and Proche proved that he could contribute in that area as well while Boykin was sidelined.

There really isn’t a role for Boykin on the team moving forward and it would probably be wise for the Ravens to have Proche active on gamedays seeing as he has a much higher ceiling on offense.

Boykin has seen his role all but disappear and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see him rendered a healthy scratch as the season goes on.
