The Tennessee Titans now have a big wide receiver for Marcus Mariota to target in the passing game.

The Titans selected Western Michigan receiver Corey Davis with the fifth overall pick in the draft.

Davis gives Tennessee a 6-foot-3 target in the passing game at a position of absolute need for the Titans. Davis earned Mid-American Conference Offensive Player of the Year honors during his final season at Western Michigan.

He caught a career-high 97 passes for 1,500 yards and 19 touchdowns last year.

Davis instantly becomes the biggest receiver on Tennessee’s roster.

    With the 5th overall pick, the Titans select the 5th best receiver. Shocker.

    Unpredictable draft so far…

    They could have gotten this guy at 18. Has everyone lost their minds tonight?

    Just made the Bears look smart.

    So many experts. Obviously smarter than JRob. Hilarious.

    People just going off what they heard in the media. Corey Davis was definitely the best WR in the draft in my book. Great pick.

    Another weapon for the Titans. Not a Titans fan but they have been doing a good job of surrounding him with some playmakers. I think this guy will be a solid #2 in his rookie year.

    Tennessee wanted to trade out of this spot but didn’t get the offer they desired so they took Corey Davis. I’m so excited to see this guy prove some of you wrong

    Who was passing the ball at Clemson to Mike Williams verses who was passing the ball to Corey Davis at WM? That should tell you which is the better WR. TitanUP!

    The only sure thing in this year’s draft is that Tennessee will move the #5 pick.
    ==============================
    Nothing like a sure thing!

    Really? Because the top 3 WRs in the draft were gone by the 10th pick.

    Corey Davis looks to be the best WR in this draft. Obviously Robinson agrees. They got him at pick 5, where they had to get him or he’d be gone. If that’s their guy you do what you need to get him. If this pick is a hit (& I think it will be) no one will care what pick they used on him.
