Corey Davis joined Randy Moss as the only Mid-American Conference wide receivers to go in the first round of the modern NFL draft when the Tennessee Titans made him the fifth overall pick Thursday. Davis set the MAC record for receiving yards during a star-studded career at Western Michigan. He had three straight 1,400-yard seasons and 5,278 yards and 52 touchdowns for his career. One of the most accomplished receivers in the draft, Davis is the first Bronco to go in Round 1 since Jason Babin went 27th overall in 2004. Moss, who played at Marshall, was the 21st pick of the 1998 draft by the Minnesota Vikings and ranks third all-time in the NFL in receiving yards. “Just to be mentioned in the same sentence as Randy Moss is, it’s all a blessing,” Davis said Wednesday.
