INDIANAPOLIS – Before teams are ready to declare him the best wide receiver in the NFL draft, they need to get an accurate reading on his 40-yard dash.

And though it won’t be for at least a month, Western Michigan’s Corey Davis said he should be able to give them one sometime in April.


Davis is not taking part in drills at this week’s NFL combine after he underwent January surgery to repair two torn ligaments in his ankle.

He won’t be ready to run by WMU’s pro day March 15, either, but said he expects to have a workout for every NFL team before the draft.

“I don’t think it should (affect my draft stock) because my game tape is not too shabby,” Davis said today at the combine. Johnnie’s new york pizza venice “And I’ll be good by minicamp, so that’s really what matters.”

Already, Davis is viewed as one of the three best wide receivers in the draft and a possible top-15 pick.

He caught 331 passes for more than 5,200 yards in four college seasons, and this year had 19 touchdowns while leading the Broncos to a 13-1 record.

But as dominant as Davis has been, and as pro-ready as he appears at 6-foot-3 and 209 pounds, detractors point to the level of competition he played against in the MAC while wondering how his skills will translate to the NFL.

“I believe that that’s the biggest question, just the level of competition,” Davis said.

Naples fl pizza restaurants But I feel like I can play with the best of them. Orlando fl pizza restaurants My confidence is up there and I’m not afraid to go against anyone.”

Davis dominated lower-caliber competition in the MAC, posting 200-yard games against Ball State last season and Ohio in 2014, but his production was more sporadic against some of the Big Ten opponents he faced.

Though Davis had 18 catches for 250 yards and two touchdowns in two career games against Michigan State, he also struggled – not always through fault of his own – against Ohio State (six catches, 42 yards in 2015) and Iowa (two catches for 11 yards as a true freshman).

NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said he ranks Davis the No. Orlando florida pizza hut 1 receiver in the draft, ahead of Clemson’s Mike Williams and Washington’s John Ross.

Williams is the biggest, most physical receiver of the trio at 6-4 and 218 pounds, and the competition he played in the ACC is unquestioned. Pizza venice swansea Ross is the fastest of the group, though he measured just 5-10 1/2 and 188 pounds.

Davis said he thinks he’ll be able to contribute as a rookie, too, and he pointed to the success former Central Michigan receiver Antonio Brown has achieved with the Pittsburgh Steelers in downplaying concerns about his MAC pedigree.

Brown, who expressed his admiration for Davis as a prospect at the Super Bowl last month, just signed the richest wide receiver contract in NFL history.
