Titans hope Corey Davis is the draft’s best WR. Will small-school talent translate?

Corey Davis was one of the most productive wideouts in college history. The question now is whether his “Tuesday Night MACtion” translates to NFL Sundays.

The Titans bet big on the 6’3 wideout after investing the fifth pick of the 2017 NFL Draft on the WMU Bronco.

In his final three years at Western Michigan, he averaged 88 receptions, 1,446 yards and 15 touchdowns per season. No player in the history of the Mid-American Conference — not even the great Antonio Brown, who attended Central Michigan — has come within 1,000 yards of Davis’ career production.

Davis was one of the nation’s most dynamic receivers last fall, but his biggest games came against opponents not exactly known for their defense. He only had five games with 100-plus receiving yards, versus North Carolina Central, Northern Illinois, Ball State, Buffalo, and Ohio.

“It’s hard in the heat of the moment to know when to pass when you got it Cheap Youth Soccer Jerseys going like that, when to score and Isaiah seems so poised every time,” Al Horford said. “Making the right decision, when to pass the ball, when to shoot it. And you can’t be mad at him because he’s scoring the ball so well when he’s taking shots. He just has that feel.”

The moment belonged to Isaiah Thomas and when the moment was gone, he slipped back into his life as a grieving brother trying to make sense of a senseless tragedy. There will be more moments, and he needs as many of them as he can get right now. They are for him and his sister, who wouldn’t let him quit. It would all be so unbelievable if it wasn’t so real.
