Corey Davis, Western Michigan
A consensus first-round prospect was in the headlines this week for his comments about potentially playing in Philadelphia.
For the Eagles to have a chance at Davis, they would need to select him with the No. 14 overall pick as Davis believes he will be picked in the 12-18 range of the first round.
Davis, a standout at Western Michigan, played both on the outside and in the slot posting 97 receptions, 1,500 yards, and 19 touchdowns in his senior season.

Although there are concerns that he played in the MAC conference, many players who played in lower tier conferences went on to be productive in the NFL (see Antonio Brown).
Drafting Davis could allow the Eagles to explore a trade for Jordan Matthews, while easing the rookie into the offense by playing him in the slot.
At 6’2″, Davis has the size and ball skills to thrive in the NFL, the speed is underrated too with Davis. Unfortunately scouts were unable to see it at the combine or pro day as Davis was battling an ankle injury.
