    Corey Davis vs John Ross


    Davis


    Pros: Best route runner. Good hands, heavy yac based WR who flips Cbs hips early and often.


    Cons: played against HS level talent in the MAC. Injury. Mystery athletic profile.


    Stats: Historic


    Ross


    Pros: Fast. Good route runner, greatest 40

    In the modern era. Has hands


    Cons: Might not have knees. Injuries have piled up.


    Stats: 1 year.

    I don't get the Davis love honestly. I see a high floor low ceiling guy here. Rich mans tajae sharpe.

    He destroyed inferior completion with technique. Shows below average NFL athleticism to me.

    I see him struggling to get open in the NFL.

    Ross on the other hand is an injury risk. If not for that, he'd be a top five pick.

    I don't get it either. I think ppl are being to harsh on John Ross. I want a receiver that can beat press coverage, get open, stretch the field, and catch the ball. Both guys can do that but John Ross just does it better

    Below average athleticism? Is Julio Jones what you consider "Average"?

    Rice, Owens, and Moss all played for "small schools".

    Forget it. You heard Wrath, he's all technique, no athleticism.

    Ross is good, but he is not Davis.

    If you watch those highlights, you'll notice that once Davis is in the open field, he leaves everyone in the dust. The athleticism on the field relative to him is a valid argument, but I'd say that Byard has above-average speed, and Corey gained several steps on him in a foot race (the long TD vs. MTSU).
