Teams Have Mixed Grades on Corey Davis

Entering the combine, the consensus top three wide receivers for the 2017 NFL Draft were Clemson's Mike Williams, Washington's John Ross, and Western Michigan's Corey Davis (more in our 2017 NFL Draft Wide Receiver Prospect Rankings.) Williams was impressive during the field drills on Saturday, but Ross was the talk of the combine, as he set the record for the fastest 40-yard dash time, breaking Chris Johnson's mark. WalterFootball.com first reported that Davis wouldn't workout at the combine, and injuries will keep him from running at his pro day as well. Those are lost opportunities for Davis, as a number of teams have told WalterFootball.com that Williams and Ross had been graded higher entering the combine. 

In surveying six teams, four of them had a late first-round/early second-round grade on Davis, while two teams thought he could go in the top 20. Every team likes Davis as a player and off the field, but some teams just feel that his talent level is indicative of a late first- or second-round pick. One team picking early in the second round has Davis as one of its targets for early in Friday night. However, the three other teams think that Davis is more likely to get picked late in the first round, and that team won't get a shot at Davis on Friday night.

Two teams felt that Davis is deserving of going in the top 20. WalterFootball.com reported Saturday that Davis was in the pool of possibilities for Tampa Bay with the 19th-overall pick. Team sources have said that Davis has interviewed well while in Indianapolis, so the combine was beneficial for him in that regard. 

It is unclear how much working out Davis will be able to do before the draft, but team sources say they don't anticipate changing their grade on Davis. His years of good tape and production speak for themselves.
