Corey Davis picked 5th in the NFL Draft

Heather Davidson | 03 May, 2017, 01:32

Throughout the "draft season" I felt like the Titans needed to land an elite playmaker on defense.

Asked about Mariota being his new quarterback, Taylor said he couldn't put that into words either. He said they were thinking about taking me with their next pick, but they ended up taking someone else. "Just trying to catch up".

The Titans obtained the fifth pick in this draft as part of the trade that sent last year's No. 1 overall selection to the Los Angeles Rams, who used it to take quarterback Jared Goff. The two have been following each other on Twitter for a while - Davis is pretty amusing, Jackson said - and met at the NFL Combine, before eventually becoming teammates in the green room Friday night.

Davis and Jackson had their picture taken together on Thursday night, and flew from Philadelphia to Nashville on the team plane today.

While Davis was widely regarded as one of the three best receivers in the draft along with Clemson's Mike Williams and Washington's John Ross, his draft stock had been in flux of late because of January ankle surgery that prevented him from working out for National Football League teams in the build up to the draft.

"I think him getting hurt actually helped him because he couldn't get nitpicked when they start looking at him like, 'Oh, you can't do this".

The entire Cleveland Browns draft , and draft philosophy: It's not often that the Browns can get mention for doing good things. Surprising? Absolutely, but they now own the 52nd overall pick in the 2nd round and the 65th overall pick in the 3rd round.

A storm of outrage was seen in the complaints posted across the social media sites following Jesse's comment on Tuesday night. The longtime Fox personality and producer's vacation was not previously announced and follows a big week for the network.

That's what made both Davis and Jackson appealing to the Titans, their work ethics. Corey Davis is big like Williams and faster on tape and has really good ball skills as well, but it's tough with that level of competition, because you didn't get to see him against SEC, ACC or even Big Ten cornerbacks. After all, Davis knew what was at stake this past season.

Davis' efforts earned him the Mid-American Conference's Offensive Player of the Year award as Western Michigan finished the regular season undefeated and earned a spot in the Cotton Bowl.

But other things mattered to Davis, such as his degree for starters. Taylor said he was almost speechless at being drafted by the team an hour away from where he played at Western Kentucky. "I just wanted to set that standard and tone so they know I am not here with the big head because I came here in the first round".

So Davis chose to return, and what a decision that was. In doing so, they procured a prolific college player that will be another big-time weapon for Mariota in the passing game.

However, Davis is far from a one-year wonder. His 5,278 receiving yards are the most all time for an FBS wideout.
