Titans select wide receiver Corey Davis No. 5 overall

Randy Moss went 21st overall to the Vikings in 1998, the only other receiver from the conference selected in the first round.

With the No. 5 draft choice, the Titans took Corey Davis of WMU.

They were flanked by general manager Jon Robinson and head coach Mike Mularkey. When the college football season ended, no one would have guessed that Mahomes would be drafted before Deshaun Watson, who was taken two picks later by Houston. Teams that didn't have an elite wide receiver, that were built similar to the Titans, that reached the Super Bowl. But the Titans ranked 25th averaging 221.3 yards per game, and a better passing attack can help stretch the field for a pair of Pro Bowlers in running back DeMarco Murray and tight end Delanie Walker.

The Titans still were sold enough on Davis to take him when players such as Alabama defensive lineman Jonathan Allen, LSU safety Jamal Adams and Ohio State cornerback Marshon Lattimore were available to boost a defense that ranked 30th in the National Football League against the pass last season. Nevertheless, the pass catcher was a need pick and the Titans are starting to show they know what they are doing with their draft process. The Titans also have the 18th pick. He seems like he will be a solid wide receiver in the NFL.

The spectacular catch former Western Michigan wideout Corey Davis made in a video he posted on Twitter is what made the headline.

CB Brian Allen Drafted by Steelers in 5th Round
He returned to the field for his senior season at Pitt just four months after his last chemotherapy treatment. "We did that. Sutton is the second defensive player in three picks by the Steelers. "Still learning to play the game".

The Titans got a breakout season past year from Rishard Matthews but need another wide receiver after Kendall Wright signed with Chicago as a free agent. The Titans are a run first team. Brown should take the role vacated by Sean Spence, who left for Indianapolis as a free agent.

Corey, the second-youngest of seven children in his family, had just moved into the home of his friend and quarterback, Ryan Graham. He even said himself after being drafted how versatile he can be. How advanced he is will determine if he can unseat a veteran for a spot on the 53-man roster initially or whether he will be a project who needs time to develop.

Jackson was a starter for his three seasons at USC and put up numbers on defense, offense and special teams.

However, the arguable top wide receiver prospect in this week's NFL Draft in Philly, sounds very interested in joining the Birds. Dodd was still experiencing pain in his right foot, and Carraway, a quick pass rusher for TCU, is a decent insurance policy in case Dodd continues to struggle.
