Let’s find out who Corey Davis is before saying he needs to be Mike Evans

So yesterday Mike Evans looked like the stud receiver that he is in practice and all of a sudden everyone is talking about Corey Davis again. People are talking about how Davis isn’t as good as he should be after being the #5 pick or how he needs to pretty much just quit practicing for the Titans and go follow Evans around on the practice field (OK, no one really said that).

Here’s the thing, Corey Davis just needs to be Corey Davis. He has done nothing but produce when he has been healthy. Last year he was dominating at the beginning of camp before he got hurt. This year he has been consistently dominating in camp including yesterday when everyone was talking about how well he was doing in the joint practice with the Buccaneers, but at some point the discussion changed to how he isn’t as good as Evans.

Well you know what, Davis isn’t as good as Evans and that’s OK right now. Evans is entering his 5th season in the league and has been fairly healthy. He has played in at least 15 games in each of his first 4 seasons. Davis, in case you didn’t know, is entering his 2nd season and only played in 11 games his first year. He has time to “live up to the #5 pick.”

So let’s just slow the comparison down for a minute. Let’s give Davis a season or 2 of good health and with a competent offense before we start screaming and yelling about HE NEEDS TO BE AS GOOD AS THE GUY THAT IS PRACTICING MERE FEET AWAY FROM HIM!!!!11
