Corey Davis – Western Michigan
Personally, Corey Davis is the wide receiver I would like the Buffalo Bills to select, if they decide to go wide receiver in the first round. It is widely believed that Corey Davis and Mike Williams will the be first two receivers taken in the draft. Although possible they are both gone by the time Buffalo picks, it’s more likely that at least one is available.
If both are available and WR is the position they want to go with, it’ll make for a tough decision. If only one is available, it’ll make for a much easier decision.
While Williams is known as the receiver that will give the most production from day one and Ross is known as the speedy receiver, Davis is known as the guy who can do it all as a receiver. He has the highest ceiling because of this and many analysts like him over Williams.
His 97 catches, 1,500 yards and 19 touchdowns says a lot about what he can do.
Let’s take a look at his frame:
Weight: 209 lbs.
Arm Length: 33”
Hands: 9 1/8”
Here’s what NFL.com’s draft profile says his strengths are:
"Outstanding four-year production. Alpha attitude on the field and not afraid to take on the challenge of heavy target load. Excellent competitiveness. Focuses like a laser when ball is in the air. Tracks the deep ball as well as anyone in college and understands how to stack cornerbacks and keep them on his hip. Has second gear to run under the long ball. Excels in intermediate and deep parts of the field. 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. Increases physicality and acceleration out of routes when operating near paydirt."
The next receiver has drawn comparisons to Percy Harvin, who recently ended his career with the Buffalo Bills.
