At this rate, this year’s entire draft class will be visiting the Eagles in Philadelphia on Friday. In addition to RB Dalvin Cook, RB Leonard Fournette, and WR Mike Williams, the Eagles are also hosting first-round wide receiver prospect Corey Davis (per Albert Breer). Davis is one of 30 prospects who will visit the Eagles leading up to the 2017 NFL Draft.
Davis, 22, measures in at 6-3, 209 pounds. In four years at Western Michigan, Davis posted 331 receptions for 5,278 yards (15.9 average) and 52 touchdowns.
As noted earlier today, the Eagles still need long-term help at wide receiver despite signing Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith. Davis could be an option at pick No. 14.

But draft evaluation is more than numbers, it is traits and Davis has NFL skills in spades. What stands out first is his size. The 6’3”, 215 pounder has a large, strong build with long arms and big hands. He uses his body incredibly well both in terms of fighting through contact at the line and also winning with the ball in the air. He has the prototypical possession receiver skills, but there is still so much more. Despite being a big receiver, Davis has excellent quickness and overall athletic ability. He is a savvy route runner who is quick through his breaks and is excellent at exposing soft spots in zone coverage, but he also has really impressive pure speed for his size that allows him to get open deep down the field. His second gear and size also make him dangerous after the catch and he has well above average vision with the ball in his hands to make him a threat to score from anywhere on the field.
