Corey Davis 6'2 205 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mwieKrx3yn0



Mike Williams 6'3 220 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HiY5t0GOgz0





Both of these dudes are at the top of mostly everyone's WR boards and nobody else is particularly close in terms of draft stock.

Which one do you prefer and why?

I'm taking Corey Davis by a hair. Very crisp route runner, great hands, and has that leggy build that allows him to glide right past defenders on deep routes. Just seems more polished and versatile.

Mike Williams is one of the best jump ball receivers I've ever seen, but has average speed, really only plays as an outside WR, and does not run great routes. He's the better blocker.


Both are A- players after the catch. Tough decision, but I guess I'd go with Corey Davis, who I think will end up having a career like Josh Gordon, had he not decided to throw it away for some droski. So 2013 Josh Gordon is my comparison for Davis. Williams, IMO, will be similar to Dez Bryant but maybe a tick slower.

I was literally just thinking today to watch this thread.

Man its tough I really wish Davis would have played in the senior bowl

His main strength is his ability to seperate from defenders, but he's playing lower level guys.

Even if hes making them look silly trying to tackle him and they dont even belong on the same field. The thing is they don't belong. I would've loved to see him go against the top corners at the senior bowl.

Based on that I'll take Williams even if he's not great at separating he has proved he can dominate defenders.

Corey Davis' weight should be 215 lbs.

I don't have any concerns about Davis' ability to create separation in the NFL. I can't say the same for Williams.

Give me Corey Davis... Williams is more like Treadwell. Davis plays the game faster, and still provides a big body to make contested catches.

Wish Davis would have played against better DBs to see if he is actually all that. I don't doubt his talent in the least bit, but many talented players have failed in the NFL.

The only NFL caliber DBs he has ever faced were Dennard and Waynes from Michigan State way back in 2013, Desmond King in 2013 and then Eli Apple and Gareon Conley in 2015

8-96-1 Michigan State
2-11-0 Iowa
6-42-0 Ohio State

I am not saying he can or cannot play in the NFL I am simply saying it makes it an extremely tough evaluation.

Tough call. I'm going to say Davis, though, because of his reputation as a tireless worker off the field. Everyone in that locker room would point to Davis as their most dedicated, disciplined player. He wants to perfect his craft. As productive as he was in college (all time FBS yards leader), I think he's still got a lot of room to grow, and that he'll continue his upward trajectory. He has a drive to be great.

I like Williams, and I think he'll be a good pro, but I also think he largely gets by on superior physical tools. I'm not saying that he doesn't work hard (I'm sure he does), but I just haven't heard the same stories and glowing reports from teammates and coaches.

I don't love Williams. He's okay, I wouldn't be upset if we got him but he's not my first, second, or even third choice.

Davis is my top receiver in the draft.

I don't think either guy is a #1 WR type prospect. Williams has great ball skills, size and good feet for his size but he's not especially explosive or fast. Davis is a technician and also uses his size. Hands are ok. But I don't think I'm seeing an especially quick or fast guy with him either. Both to me are more like #2's with Williams clearly on top because of better size, hands and doing it against much better competition.
