Thank you. Now, on with the silliness...
With the signing of Dwayne Bowe and Brian Hartline, the pressure arguably could be off (somewhat) on the Browns to draft a wide receiver in the first round. I’m personally not convinced that the Browns aren’t desperate for a #1 receiver, but there may be those that feel Bowe buys the team some time.
For those folks, it’s interesting to follow if there are any receivers the Browns might be considering for later in the draft.
Here’s part of what Dave-Te Thomas had to say about Davis in his Deep Draft Analysis of the wide receiver position:
“He has a compact body, with solid upper frame muscle definition, along with exceptional change of direction agility, above average body control and acceleration. He is a valid deep threat, thanks to his excellent quickness and change-up speed. He is his best element when asked to move and uncover on short routes, as he has enough blazing speed to get open going deep. He can make proper body adjustments and displays a very good functional second gear to elude after the catch (663-of–1,109 yards RAC in 2013; 469-of–843 in 2014).”
Sounds like an intriguing receiver for a mid-round selection, perhaps even more so if the team looks at other positions in the first round.
