On Thursday the former Western Michigan wide receiver was selected fifth overall, which means he will soon be a millionaire.
Do you think the Tennessee Titans should have drafted Corey Davis with the No. 5 overall pick? The Titans have a glaring weakness: Their secondary is awful. Running back Derrick Henry (second round) set an SEC record with 2,219 rushing yards in 2015.
"I haven't met him yet, but will soon", Davis said. "He has a great family and a great foundation and I am looking forward to playing with him". He's an accurate quarterback.
"Unfortunately, the 6'3", 213-pound receiver was rehabbing an ankle injury suffered while training for the combine and did not participate in drills.
"I'm not going to lie, I was surprised", Davis said in his post-draft interview with the media.
By comparison, the Titans took players from the MAC, Conference USA and even dipping into the FCS ranks. And in a draft where none of the quarterbacks looked like locks to be picked in the first round, three were taken in the first 12 picks.
Coming to Tennessee and joining Davis, Rishard Matthews and Tajae Sharpe, Taylor figures to see a lot of work in the slot. "He was congratulating me, and said how proud he was of me".
In Davis, the Titans added a big-bodied, physical receiver who can go up and catch the football. Wide receiver Tyrone Calico (second round, 2003) never quite measured up in the National Football League despite all of his measurables, such as height and speed, he featured. "'I always wanted to be a hometown hero, ' he says". "One of my favorite quotes is from Walter Payton, and that's 'Never die easy.' I try to live that out wholeheartedly". So I'm excited to potentially get the chance to protect for him.
Western Michigan receiver Corey Davis, and Southern Cal defensive back Adoree' Jackson. For his first task, he will also get to be a little like Walker when he started his career as a second tight end with a major blocking role, with an eye on eventually taking over as the primary receiving once Walker is finished up. Jackson also scored four career touchdowns on punt returns and four more on kickoff returns.
The Titans lost their most experienced cornerback earlier this month when they released three-time captain Jason McCourty, though they did sign Logan Ryan away from New England in March. The Titans also have the 18th overall pick, which gives them another opportunity to address their defensive needs. Fast-forward to 2017. The Titans own two first-round picks and it's been reported that they are fielding calls from teams trying to move into the No. 5 spot.
