The off-season hasn’t been kind to Western Michigan’s wide receiver Corey Davis.
Davis is regarded as one of the best WRs in the 2017 draft class, but a shoulder injury has already knocked him out of competing in the Senior Bowl and now according to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, an ankle injury has put his chances of performing at the NFL Scouting Combine in doubt.

Missing the Senior Bowl and Combine could cause Corey Davis’ draft stock to take a little bit of a hit. This could be really good news for the Dallas Cowboys, who are in need of another talented WR to play opposite Dez Bryant.
The 6’3″, 213 former Bronco fits the parameters that the Cowboys like in their wide receivers to a T. He is big, physical, and can play either the X or Y position. He would be the perfect complement opposite of #88.
Davis racked up a NCAA-record of 5,278 receiving yards during his career at Western Michigan and led the nation with 19 touchdowns this past season.
I have Davis as my top rated wide receiver in the 2017 draft class, although many people would argue that Mike Williams is the #1 WR. I personally think Davis is a top 15 player and that there would be no way he would still be on the board when the Dallas Cowboys are on the clock at 28.
These injuries knocking him out of two of the most important chances to showcase his skill set might just cause him to slide right into the Cowboys lap in the first round come draft time in April.
The Dallas Cowboys would definitely have to seriously consider adding a player as talented as Corey Davis, even though defensive end and cornerback might be more pressing needs.
For me though, I wouldn’t hesitate a second before writing his name on the draft card. This is a deep draft for defensive ends and cornerbacks, but it’s not every day you get a chance to add one of the best players in the entire draft to your roster.
Plus, Corey Davis already looks like he’s at home playing in AT&T Stadium.

I don’t know about you, but I’m hoping to see Corey Davis wearing the star on his helmet in the end zone at AT&T Stadium for years to come. I mean, he’s already perfected the art of throwing up the X’s.
Do you think the Dallas Cowboys should consider adding Corey Davis?
