Davis had an impressive 2016 at Western Michigan, catching 97 passes for 1,500 yards with 19 touchdowns. He’s got size as well, standing 6’3, 209 pounds.
WalterFootball.com has this to say about Davis in their scouting report:
The most prolific wide receiver in the history of the FBS is Corey Davis. Let that sink in. He produced at a level that no player ever has before. During his senior campaign, Davis sent the FBS record for career yardage after passing Nevada’s Trevor Insley. Insley had 5,005 yards before Davis ended up totaling 5,285 yards over his college career. While Davis played at a smaller level of competition, he has skill set to be a good NFL wide receiver.
Davis started out his career with quality freshman-year production (67-941-6) before breaking out as a sophomore with 78 catches for 1,408 yards and 15 touchdowns. Davis was banged up with injuries in his junior season, but played through them while totaling 90 receptions for 1,436 yards with 12 touchdowns. That season the attention he commanded also opened up teammate Daniel Braverman to have a big year. As a senior, Davis saw lots of bracket coverage yet he still amassed 97 receptions for 1,500 yards and 19 touchdowns.
Sources said they graded Davis after his junior season thinking he might come out early and he was receiving second-round grades. Davis decided to return to school though, and now sources say that he could end up going in Round 1. Davis has the potential for some teams to view him as a future No. 1 receiver.
