Blewett’s Blitz continues his Corey Davis film review by highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of the New York Jets’ top weapon.
Denzel Mims, Jamison Crowder and newcomer Corey Davis make up the New York Jets‘ starting wide receiver trio for whichever quarterback starts Week 1 in 2021. The last name of the group is the guy Jets X-Factor is focusing on right now.
Blewett’s Blitz finishes his Corey Davis film review with a second part that focuses on his strengths and weaknesses.
Throughout his Tennesee Titans career, Davis has showcased incredible raw skills. These skills are what helped him get drafted fifth overall in 2017 out of Eastern Michigan. The pick shocked not only Titans fans but the NFL as a whole. With wide receivers such as Mike Williams and John Ross still on the board, draft experts took Davis in the five-hole as a surprise.
Today, it’s safe to say Davis didn’t live up to his draft promise. It’s not as though he failed completely in Tennessee, rather the No. 5 overall pick takes special production in order to meet expectations.
Davis, 26, is just one of many younger free agents Joe Douglas decided to dish guaranteed money to this past free-agency period. Carl Lawson and Jarrad Davis also fit that narrative, as the latter is another first-round pick who didn’t fully meet expectations.
We know the raw physical traits are there, but what else does Corey Davis do well on the football field? What are the areas he needs to improve? Blewett’s Blitz breaks it all down.
