Profile

Summary:Davis came out of Wheaton-Warrenville South High School (Illinois) as just a two-star recruit, but he quickly proved naysayers wrong with his production at Western Michigan. In 2013, Davis had 67 catches for 941 yards and six touchdowns, earning MAC Freshman of the Year honors. He was named First-Team All-Conference three times during his career with the Broncos and impressed each season. 

According to his NFL.com draft profile, Davis was a standout competitor all four years and shows incredible talent at tracking the ball and understanding how to match up against cornerbacks. He's been successful both at intermediate and deep parts of the field and is a strong route runner. Davis is described as "a quarterback's friend" and performs especially well in the red zone.  

NFL.com analyst Lance Zierlein called Davis a "touchdown juggernaut who has a four-year model of production and consistency in college."

"Davis has the route-running and ball skills to become a starter in the league," Zierlein said. "But it is his competitiveness and production in the red zone that should make him a good one."

Stacking up: NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock and Sports Illustrated's Chris Burke each ranked Davis as this year's top wide receiver prospect. NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks listed Davis at No. 3 among receivers, ranking him behind Clemson's Mike Williams and Washington's John Ross, who broke the 40-yard dash record with an official time of 4.22 seconds.

Notable names:Davis' high school has changed names over the years, dating back to 1876 when it was known only as Wheaton High School. No matter the name, however, the school has produced a number of prominent alumni, including former Bears halfback Harold "Red" Grange, who was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Other notable names include actors John and Jim Belushi and professional golfer Kevin Streelman.
