PRO: The Titans selected Corey Davis with the fifth-overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, which was obtained in a 2016 trade with the Los Angeles Rams. As a rookie, Davis saw action in 11 games and notched 34 catches for 375 yards. The 6-foot-3-inch, 209-pound wide receiver brings a complete skill set to his position, excelling in route running, making plays after the catch, and blocking. His 5,285 receiving yards at Western Michigan set an all-time FBS record, and he became the second player in FBS history to record 52 career receiving touchdowns. Davis became the highest drafted player from Western Michigan and the first first-rounder from the school since Jason Babin in 2004. The fifth pick was the highest selection ever used by the Titans/Oilers on a wide receiver by 11 slots, topping the 1998 choice of Kevin Dyson with the 16th pick.
• In a playoff game at New England on Jan. 13, 2018, Davis caught two touchdown passes to tie the franchise single-game postseason record (five previous times). He became the first player to accomplish the feat in the postseason since wide receiver Haywood Jeffires did so at Buffalo on Jan. 3, 1993. Davis was the first NFL rookie with two touchdown receptions in a playoff game since Panthers receiver Kelvin Benjamin on Jan. 10, 2015.
• In Week 1 of the 2017 season, Davis caught six passes for 69 yards. This reception total ranks second among all rookies in Week 1 games in the “Titans era” (1999-present).
• Davis set an FBS all-time record with 5,285 career receiving yards.
• In 2016, Davis was a consensus All-American selection after tying for the FBS lead with 19 touchdown receptions, ranking seventh nationally with 1,500 receiving yards, and ranking eighth with 97 catches.
• Davis set Western Michigan records for single-season touchdown receptions (19), single-game receiving yards (272), touchdown receptions in a bowl game (three), career receptions (332), career touchdown receptions (52) and career receiving yards (5,285).
• Davis and his six siblings survived a tough economic upbringing in Wheaton, Ill. While he has always maintained a loving relationship with his parents, Olasheni Timson and Michelle Davis, he made the decision as a high school junior to move into the home of Robin and Dan Graham, who became his legal guardians. Dan, Corey Davis’ youth football coach, was an offensive lineman for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. His son, Ryan Graham, played youth and high school football with Davis and currently plays quarterback at Northern Illinois.
• Davis’ brother, Titus, played football at Central Michigan and was signed by the Chargers as a rookie free agent in 2015. Titus also spent time with the Jets and Bills before signing with the Bears during the 2017 offseason.
• One of Davis’ favorite quotes is “Never die easy” by Walter Payton, who used the saying as the title to his autobiography.
• The Wheaton, Ill., native was selected by the Titans in the first round (fifth overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft.
• In four seasons at Western Michigan (2013-16), Davis played and started 50 games. He registered 332 career receptions for 5,285 yards and 52 touchdowns, setting the Mid-American Conference record in each category and becoming the only player in FBS history with 300 catches, 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns. His 5,285 career receiving yards were the most in FBS history, and he ended his career ranked second all-time in FBS history with 52 career receiving touchdowns (60 by Jarett Dillard). Davis’ 332 career receptions ranked fourth all-time in FBS annals.
• As a senior (2016), played and started 13 games and set career highs with 97 receptions, 1,500 receiving yards and 19 touchdowns. He helped his team win the MAC and go undefeated until a Cotton Bowl loss. He had five games of 100-plus yards and six games of two or more receiving touchdowns. His receiving yardage total ranked seventh in FBS, while his reception total was eighth. Named a Biletnikoff Award semifinalist and earned All-American honors from Associated Press (first-team), FWAA (first-team), Phil Steele (first-team), USA Today, Sporting News and Sports Illustrated. Named Mid-American Conference Offensive Player of the Year.
At Ball State (11/1), posted 12 catches for a WMU-record 272 yards with three touchdowns and was named MAC Player of the Week.
• As a junior (2015), played and started 13 games and caught 90 passes for 1,436 yards and 12 touchdowns. Finished fifth in the nation and second in the MAC in receiving yards, and his 6.9 receptions per game ranked third in the league and 11th nationally.
