He scored one touchdown with an interception return, six on pas receptions, four on punt returns and four on kickoff returns.
Considering his speed and size, there is not much to truly ding Davis on. While he departed St. Louis many years ago for the greener pastures of Los Angeles, just like the Rams later did, cornerback Adoree' Jackson became the latest St. Louis area native to be drafted on Thursday night. I can't wait until Davis lights the league on fire in his rookie season! Prior to the draft, Robinson even let it be known that the odds he would go wild in his second draft were 50-50. The Titans are a run first team.
Davis set the MAC record for receiving yards during a star-studded career at Western Michigan. He said they were thinking about taking me with their next pick, but they ended up taking someone else. The Titans are chasing their first playoff appearance since 2008 after going 9-7 last season, a dramatic jump from 3-13 in 2015.
Although, the Titans do run a lot of option plays for Mariota who is a playmaker for Tennessee in his own right. That's no small thing, given third-rounders get hundreds of thousands in guaranteed money, and Davis came from next to no means.
The Titans have an open cornerback spot after releasing veteran Jason McCourty on April 17 and need someone to start opposite veteran Logan Ryan, a free agent signed from New England. But he was arguably the best receiver in the draft. "And if I am needed on offense you can throw me out there whenever".
Titans coach Mike Mularkey loves the versatility these guys bring to the table.
The versatile Jackson not only solves the Titans' need for another starting cornerback to pair with free-agent pickup Logan Ryan, but also has dynamic ability as a return man, something the Titans were lacking a year ago.
Jackson, who entered the draft after his junior season, not only was a 3-year starter at cornerback for USC but he was a unsafe returner and saw action on offense as a wide receiver.
"He's played against some big receivers, played against Alabama and had a good game, played against Washington, had a good game", Robinson said. The Titans also could use a tight end to complement Pro Bowler Delanie Walker.
Tennessee also may want to add a pass rusher.
After making the trade, the Titans used their second of three draft selections on Taylor. Instead, the Titans grabbed Davis over Williams, who went two picks later to the Chargers. The Titans do have two third-round selections.
