While the Power Five conferences steal all the headlines, there’s always talent to be found in the nation’s lesser leagues. This season in particular is flush with talent at the lower levels.
Corey Davis, WR Western Michigan Broncos
Corey Davis has been a devy darling since early in his freshman season, a rare feat for a small school player with little recruiting fanfare. A strong performance against Michigan State in his collegiate debut started the hype train; incremental strides since then have allowed him to become one of the most ballyhooed receivers in the college game. Dubbed a technician, Davis looked like a pedestrian athlete early in his career yet, has been able to add speed and explosion to his game as he’s matured as both a player and human being. Combine testing may be more crucial for him than most, but there’s little question he’s got a NFL future.
