Titans WR Corey Davis was ‘one of the stars’ of the team’s spring practices

Corey Davis, Titans

Over the last couple of years, the Tennesee Titans have put together a young and promising group of talent on the offensive side of the ball that helped lift them to their first playoff appearance in nearly a decade.

One of those key players is second-year wide receiver Corey Davis, who the Titans have continued to be extremely high on his ability on the field. According to Jim Wyatt of Titans Online, Davis has stood out in the team offseason workouts behind his sharp and smooth performance in the drills.

Davis was one of the stars during the early portion of offseason work, but he was limited late … Davis looked smooth during the offseason, snatching the ball out of the air with ease in traffic. He went up high to make some spectacular catches. The Titans are counting on Davis to make a big leap in Year 2.

This is quite a promising sign given that the 23-year-old limited in his rookie campaign by a nagging hamstring injury for much of the season that saw him play in just 11 games. This didn’t allow for him to truly get his footing under him where he recorded 34 catches on 64 targets for 375 receiving yards and no touchdown receptions.

However, he did break through in the playoffs in the AFC divisional round game against the New England Patriots where he had five catches for 63 receiving yards and a pair of touchdowns. Davis showed plenty of potential on his touchdown grabs with the first one coming on a one-handed catch and the latter being a tip-toe grab while pushing toward the sideline in the end zone.

Given that he now has a full bill of health, it could see him make a tremendous step forward in his second campaign to demonstrate why the Titans made him the fifth overall selection in the 2017 NFL Draft and the first wide receiver off the board.
