Corey Davis NFL Draft Profile
Corey Davis-WR-Western Michigan
Size: 6’3 213lbs
- Tracks the ball in the air very well
- Dominates in red zone
- High-point catcher
- Route running
- Outstanding four-year production
Analysis: Corey Davis is an ultra-competitor on the football field. He focuses like a laser when ball is in the air, tracking the deep ball as well as anyone in college and understands how to stack cornerbacks and keep them on his hip. Route running showed improvement in 2016. Variable route speed creates indecision for defenders. Vertical routes are crisp and create tilt in off-corners and safeties that he is quick to take advantage of. Play speed features access to functional burst. Can defeat inside leverage. A quarterback’s friend who works aggressively back to the ball. Dominates in red zone. High-point catcher who uses well-timed leaps and long arms to win the 50-50 throws.
- Needs to improve quickness in-n-out of breaks
- Focus-drops (had 16 during his tenure at Western Michigan)
- Not suited for slot work
Analysis: Corey Davis was without a doubt one of the most productive college WR’s in my lifetime, but he still needs work on his game. He drifts, at times, on in-breaking routes, allowing defenders to squeeze the route. Needs to improve quickness into and out of his breaks underneath. Elongated into breaks when working from slot. Has had some issues with focus drops on throws outside of his frame. Had 16 drops over last three years at Western. Free releases into his routes in college will turn into stern press challenges in the pros. Wasn’t asked to do much meaningful blocking. The biggest question I have, how will he handle NFL corners instead of MAC corners.
