Strengths
Prototypical height and weight. Strong leader who is very coach-able. Elite route runner (Reggie Wayne abilities). Great mental awareness and focus. Intelligent and smart football player. Very good run blocker who enjoys it.

Weaknesses
Needs to be more physical. Needs to do a better job contesting 50/50 balls. Did not have stiff competition in the MAC. Sometimes fights with the ball, leading to 11 drops in his senior year.

Summary
Corey Davis is the ultimate producer. Everything is there for Davis to be the best wide receiver in this draft class. He could be a Day 1 starter, and a difference maker. He should hear his name called in the top 20, and might even go in the top 10.
