Florida State receiver Chris Davis is the second fourth-round pick for the Titans. It’s good to finally see a guy with some talent drafted at a position of need.
Davis does have some shortcomings, most notably his size. At 5′ 10″, 180 pounds, he’s a smurf.
His attributes include precise route-running and the ability and willingness to catch the ball over the middle and in traffic. He has good run after catch ability with his moves and elusiveness.
As a bonus, he’s also a punt returner and can run the ball on reverses.
- Here’s the NFL’s scouting report on Davis:
Compares To: Troy Walters, Indianapolis — Davis is a slippery runner with good acceleration in the open, but once a defender gets a piece of him, the battle is usually over. He is a fearless sort, though, who will go vertical to make the tough catch. Like Walters, he shows some adequate return skills and is capable of gaining positive yardage on the reverse due to his cutback ability.
Although I would have preferred a defensive end with this pick, I’m satisfied with the selection of Davis.
