Corey Davis' strong debut included mistakes to clean up

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – If the dreams of the Tennessee Titans’ pan out, we will be talking about Corey Davis’ first catch for a long time.

Marcus Mariota threw a 23-yard pass over Oakland cornerback David Amerson, who was very well positioned. But Davis timed his leap well, rose to high-point the ball, grabbed it with two hands and fell to the ground, cradling a third-and-8 conversion.DavisOAK

Mariota ran 10 yards for a touchdown on the next play.

A team traditionally starving for receivers has revamped the position since the Jon Robinson-Mike Mularkey takeover. Detailed and precise pass-catchers are now the priority. With the fifth pick in the draft, they decided Davis, who played at Western Michigan, brought those qualities along with the sort of supreme athleticism that made him worthy of that slot.
