Corey Davis, Former Western Michigan Legend, Has Monster Day for Titans

His potential is starting to be realized

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Tennessee Titans Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

We all knew just how good Corey Davis was, watching him dominate the receiver position for the Western Michigan Broncos. How dominate was he? He set the NCAA receiving yardage record for a career. While he is only 273 yards in front of second play, he outpaces third place by 692 yards.

In his first season, the first round draft pick proved he belongs in the NFL, but was nagged by injuries and only played in 11 games and managed to accumulate 375 receiver yards his rookie season. In his second season, he caught 13 balls for 148 yards. Then...

For the game Mr. Davis caught 9 balls for 161 yards, including the game winner and another 51 yard gain. This game is proving what I have thought for a while.

Instead of being an NFL journeyman that earns a nice living playing the game, I believe he will excel. The 23 year old Davis is paired on the Tennessee Titans with rising star QB Marcus Mariota, himself only 24. That highlight is only the beginning.
