We all love Corey Davis here and know what he is capable of doing in his second year. It turns out that there are people on the outside that see that same potential. Field Yates of ESPN compiled a list of players that are primed for a 2nd-year breakout (In$ider). Davis is first on his list. His comments:
It became a weekly tradition for me to anticipate the Davis breakout game last season, as the immensely talented wideout showed flashes almost immediately: He led the Titans with 10 Week 1 targets. Injuries, inconsistent quarterback play and room to grow kept Davis from catapulting during the regular season, but he reminded us in the playoffs of what was to come. He scored in each of the Titans’ postseason games, carrying a 23.1 percent target share during those two outings. He passes the eye test, has the raw physical tools (he was the fifth overall pick for a reason) and enters the year healthy. Watch out.
We are getting more and more reports like this one every single day from camp:
Just saw Mariota throw an absolutely perfect back shoulder throw to @TheCDavis84 for 25 yards in 11-on-11. If the two of them can create that consistent connection, the #Titans offense will have something it hasn’t had in a very long time, if ever. #NFL— Zach Bingham (@Bada_Bingham) August 2, 2018
Zach is 100% right. That combination is going to be the best QB/WR connection since Billy Volek and Drew Bennett.
