2017 Mock Drafts: Corey Davis To The Redskins?

Posted Feb 16, 2017

In his first mock draft of the year, CBSSports' Will Brinson has the Redskins selecting wide receiver Corey Davis with the No. 17-overall pick.

In his first mock draft of the year, CBSSports' Will Brinson has the Redskins selecting wide receiver Corey Davis with the No. 17-overall pick.

One of the biggest offseason questions for the Washington Redskins right now circulates around their potential desire to bring back DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garçon.

Since Jackson signed with the Redskins in 2014, the nine-year veterans have been Washington’s two most productive receivers. While both have expressed that they want to return to the Redskins, there is no guarantee that one or both will be back in 2017.

If Jackson and Garçon both sign on elsewhere, will the Redskins as their first round pick on another wide receiver?

CBSSports’ Will Brinson believes it could happen, as he has the Redskins selecting Western Michigan wide receiver Corey Davis with the No. 17-overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft in his first mock draft.

“Going back-to-back wideouts in the first round after taking Josh Doctson seems excessive, but if the Redskins exit free agency with DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garçon both leaving, it won’t seem weird at all,” Brinson writes.

In four seasons at Western Michigan, Davis caught 331 passes for 5,278 yards and 52 touchdown receptions.

Davis became the NCAA Division I-A all-time leader in receiving yards during his senior season, smashing the previous record-holding mark of 5,005 receiving yards set by former Nevada wide receiver Travis Insley in 1999.

The 6-foot-2, 205 pounder earned Associated Press first-team All-American honors during his senior year and was named MAC Offensive Player of the Year, as he recorded 97 receptions for 1,500 yards and 19 touchdowns.

Five times during the Broncos’ undefeated regular season Davis recorded at least 100 receiving yards, highlighted by a 272-yard, three-touchdown performance in a 52-20 victory over Ball State on Nov. 1.

Davis caught six passes for 73 yards and a touchdown in the Cotton Bowl Classic against Wisconsin.

The Wheaton, Ill., native earned first-team All-MAC selections during his sophomore and junior seasons as well, hauling in 168 receptions for 2,844 yards and 27 touchdowns.

Davis was named MAC Freshman of the Year in 2013, as he caught 67 passes for 941 yards and six touchdowns.

 According to his NFL.com draft profile, Davis has an “alpha attitude on the field and not afraid to take on the challenge of heavy target load.”

“Excellent competitiveness. Focuses like a laser when ball is in the air. Tracks the deep ball as well as anyone in college and understands how to stack cornerbacks and keep them on his hip. Has second gear to run under the long ball. Excels in intermediate and deep parts of the field. Route running showed improvement in 2016. Variable route speed creates indecision for defenders. Vertical routes are crisp and create tilt in off-corners and safeties that he is quick to take advantage of. Play speed features access to functional burst. Can defeat inside leverage. A quarterback's friend who works aggressively back to the ball. Dominates in red zone. High-point catcher who uses well-timed leaps and long arms to win the 50-50 throws. Increases physicality and acceleration out of routes when operating near paydirt,” his profile states.
