Risky mock draft round 1, pick 18: Corey Davis WR, Western Michigan
With all the buzz out there saying that Davis is a 2nd round player on some boards, this is a no brainer to me.
You run the risk of buying high on a small school wide receiver who dominated lower levels of competition. You could even argue that you compound that risk by taking a guy who you don’t have athletic testing for in the first round.
However, when you watch Davis on tape, everything is just so easy for him. You can tell he takes pride in his route running and his ability to make plays on the ball in the air. You can see that he loves to block defenders down field to spring other players for big runs.
Combine that with him being a four year starter (stud) and you have the recipe for a dynamic wide receiver.
Just think about coming out in an offense where you have Corey Davis and Rishard Matthews who both have 1,000 receiving yard potential. Delanie Walker and Jake Butt (we will get to that in a second) at tight end as very good blockers who can also make plays on the ball. All that with Marcus Mariota and Demarco Murray/Derrick Henry behind a stellar offensive line.
