Corey Davis, the first round selection of the Tennessee Titans in the 2017 NFL Draft, was hampered by a bum hamstring for a large portion of his rookie season.
But that didn’t stop him from displaying the talent that made him the fifth overall pick in last year’s draft.
Davis, who caught 34 passes for 375 yards in 11 games during the regular season, burst onto the scene in his first game in the NFL, reeling in six passes for 69 yards in a week one loss to the Oakland Raiders.
Unfortunately for the Titans, Davis re-aggravated his hamstring in a week two win against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Davis wouldn’t play again until week nine.
Despite the fact that Davis wasn’t 100 percent for much of his rookie season, he still found a way to make some very impressive plays.

That touchdown catch against the Patriots in the playoffs (one of two he had in the Titans’ loss to New England), is a great example of why Davis is so important to Tennessee’s offense. Not only did Davis blow past Malcom Butler (now his teammate), but he made an impressive one handed catch, while somehow staying in bounds. That’s a big time play on a big time stage.
The sky is the limit for Davis in 2018. There’s no telling what he can accomplish if/when he’s fully healthy.
