Titans Sign No. 5 Overall Pick WR Corey Davis, Wrap Up Draft Class

The Tennessee Titans have signed first-round WR Corey Davis to a four-year rookie contract to wrap up their draft class.

Davis, 22, was taken with the No. 5 overall pick by the Titans. Unfortunately, Davis suffered an ankle injury while training a few months ago, which led to him missing the Scouting Combine.

Some wondered if Davis’ inability to work out for teams could impact his draft status, but it’s clear that this wasn’t the case, given that he wound up being a top-5 pick and the first receiver to come off the board.

The Titans could really use a legitimate No. 1 receiver and Davis possesses the kind of ability to fill this role in their offense for the years to come.

According to OverTheCap.com, Davis will receive a four-year contract worth $25,391,648, which includes a signing bonus of $16,606,652. The contract also has a fifth-year option for the team to consider in 2020.

During his four years at Western Michigan, Davis caught 331 passes for 5,278 yards receiving (15.9 YPR) to go along with 52 touchdowns.
