The Tennessee Titans selected former Western Michigan wide receiver Corey Davis with the No. 5 overall pick in Thursday's National Football League draft.
The Titans haven't used a first-round pick on a defensive player since 2010, when they took Georgia Tech defensive end/outside linebacker Derrick Morgan with the 16th overall pick. Picking Davis over, say, CB Marshon Lattimore at No. 5 was the safer route, given the depth of this cornerback class and how the wide receiver group fell off a bit after the top three. However, he did play in nine games versus Big Ten opponents.
"It went just how we planned it past year", Robinson said, sneaking in another joke. So I'm excited to potentially get the chance to protect for him. He believes the addition of Davis in the passing game should open things up in the run game as well.
"That's not going to affect any of that", Smith said.
"I've watched "Draft Day" every night for the last two weeks trying to get geared up", Robinson said Wednesday. The Titans also expect to utilize Jackson as a return man.
When Davis was drafted fifth, Jackson was in the bathroom. "He'll be competitive. He's a competitive guy". "He's definitely my favorite quarterback, and I'm looking forward to playing with him".
Trump warns North Korea's missiles will get better
Earlier on Sunday, Donald Trump told CBS that he " will not be happy " if North Korea conducts another nuclear test. Army oil trucks from entering the site, local media reported. "We can't allow it to happen".
Davis, selected fifth overall, caught 97 balls for 1,500 yards and 19 touchdowns last season, and his 5,278 career receiving yards is an FBS record.
If Davis' career stats listed about look gaudy, that's because he is the NCAA's all-time career leader in receiving yards by more than 250 yards.
The concern surrounding the 6-foot-3 receiver is whether he can translate his Mid-American Conference success to the NFL. He was one of the most dynamic players in the nation with the ball in his hands, and was surprisingly good against the run, despite his diminutive stature.
So that's why I was shocked when both of those players were available and the Titans went with....
Williams is the second receiver taken in the first seven picks. Like the saying, "Iron sharpens iron". "It's going to be great". He is a great competitor and a great receiver.
Considering his speed and size, there is not much to truly ding Davis on.
Artificial Womb Supports Premature Fetal Lamb Development
Alan Flake , a fetal surgeon at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia who led the study , said in a press statement . The research was published in the journal Nature Communications .
Davis didn't meet Marcus Mariota on Friday, but he said he's texted back and forth with the Titans quarterback.
"He was incredibly emotional about it", said P.J. Fleck, Davis' coach at Western Michigan who was with Davis in Philadelphia. I've always worked like I'm the best guy in the county. "I don't really know what they're going to do, but I feel like I'm going to be ready". In those games, he averaged 6.0 receptions, 78 yards, and 0.6 touchdowns per game - impressive statistics when you factor in the caliber of quarterback he played with.
"I texted him as soon as I found out what number I was getting", Jackson said of White.
"I don't think I was as surprised as everybody else", Fleck said in a phone interview with The News on Saturday afternoon. "And if I am needed on offense you can throw me out there whenever".
I hope for the Titans' sake that Jon Robinson got this one right.
