Three wide receivers the Arizona Cardinals should target
Corey Davis has yet to live to his draft status. Drafted 5th overall back in 2017, Davis has failed to breakout into the WR1 the Tennessee Titans thought they were drafting. Having declined his fifth-year option, Davis put on a decent 2020 campaign. The best of his career.
Davis matched his 2018 number in receptions with 65. However, he did it on far fewer targets. Whereas in 2018, his catch percentage sat at 58 percent, it has increased to 70 just two seasons later.
Davis also set career-high numbers in first downs with 49, receptions per game with 4.6, yards per game at 70.3, receiving yards with 984, and touchdowns, with 5. Davis also amassed 10.7 yards per target, another career-high.
It’s clear that Davis can be a solid starter in the NFL. And even if he hasn’t panned out as a WR1, chances are his production will skyrocket lining up opposite DeAndre Hopkins. Or, Davis will at least draw attention away from Hopkins, making the Cardinals’ WR1 an even more dangerous weapon.
Our final prospect makes more sense than either Davis or Brown. This target has solidified himself as a dual-threat receiver who can catch and run. Having experienced a breakout season, odds are, he’s just getting started.
