    I remember seeing Davis mocked in the first round before the season started. I like his game. However, he plays nothing like OBJ though. They want to make the comparison so bad, but it's just not there. He's more of a Keenan Allen type WR.

    But IF and that's a big IF, he's still there in the 5th, I'd definitely like to have him.

    Quez watkins has been my unanimous late round wr this year for us, but i just noticed this guy and he's giving quez a run for his money now. 4.39 40, tenacious run blocking, great hands(over 100 catches, 1400 yards) and as you can see in the lsu game, he is a grown ass man..



    Plus, devin the duve would easily be the coolest nickname in the nfl.

    I think during Senior Bowl week Davenport touched on a few guys to watch there that he thought were great fits for the Titans. And Duvernay was the receiver. I warmed up to him at that point.

    I don't really know Watkins. Every single guy here seems to have him as their late round WR, which means people just repeat the 1 name they heard.... or he goes way earlier than people here expect.

    Watkins is really fast and fluid. 2nd fastest wr behind ruggs. 60+ catches last 2 seasons. 1200 yards last year. 6 foot tall..so yeah he's a very intriguing prospect. Would probably take khalif raymonds burner spot, but i don't know if he'll have much value outside of that for us Right away. He returned kicks and punts too so there's that.

    Duvernay is also a burner who will block his ass off and catch balls in the middle of the field. He will also run over cornerbacks for plenty of rac yards. Not quite as good top end speed or as good of a route runner as watkins though.

    I honestly don't know who id rather have. I want one of them though for sure. Easily my favorite 2 wrs for us. Speed is the ingredient missing from our offense and one of these late day 2 early day 3 guys would be perfect.

    I'd bet Duvernay has better top end. He ran a 10.2 in the 100m in high school. If he focused on track, he'd be an Olympian.

    Idk bro. Quez ran a 4.35 at combine. Duvernay ran 4.39. Quez is also longer and lighter so I couldn't see duvernay catching him. Itd be a fun race to watch though 4sure

    Also, in my opinion, it's more impressive for a non track guy to run a good 40 than a guy who was on the track team.

    I put together my positional rankings yesterday....just do 1st, 2nd, 3rd rnders and Duvernay was the last WR to make it in with a 3rd rnd grade

    1st rnd grades-- Ruggs, Jeudy, Lamb, Reagor, Jefferson
    2nd rnd grades-- Mims, Higgins, Van Jefferson, Aiyuk, Shenault, Pittman
    3rd rnd grades-- Bowden, Claypool, Tyler Johnson, Hamler, Duvernay

    This wide receiver class is so deep. JR better get us one.

    Good list. Looks right to me, outside of Van Jefferson 2nd round grade. I love the dude, he went to my old high school. But hes been dealing with offseason injury and I'm seeing him going closer to the 5th.
