Syracuse announces a home-and-home series in 2018-19 with Western Michigan, coached by former Orange assistant Tim Lester. Syracuse will play at WMU next year, home in 2019. The latter game rounds out the Orange's non-conference slate for 2019.

Is Corey Davis all the way back from ankle surgery that followed his final year at Western Michigan? (Video.)

Paul Kuharsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Western Michigan was the only D-1 offer for Corey Davis. Western Kentucky was the only D-1 offer for Taywan Taylor. Titans have a couple new self-made receivers on the roster and raring to catch passes from Marcus Mariota.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

The Titans have added playmakers at the wide receiver position in this draft with Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor. More speed and explosive play ability down the field for QB Marcus Mariota.

Panthers strengthen O-line with Taylor Moton

Carolina used the final pick of the second round to add more protection for Cam Newton, taking the 319-pound Western Michigan offensive tackle, who will likely switch inside to guard.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Corey Davis told me his ankle is about 85 percent right now and he believes he'll be ready for training camp. Also told me that because of his injury, he's had to "put more emphasis on the mental aspect of everything" and how he presents himself to teams.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

WR Corey Davis reminds me of Brandon Marshall. Very physical receiver with the ability to win at the point of attack due to his size and catch radius. Davis can be a true matchup weapon for Titans QB Marcus Mariota in critical situations and in the red zone.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

Western Michigan wide receiver Corey Davis told me he'd have a "lot of mixed emotions" walking across the stage tonight. "It'll all be worth it." Also told me, "I only get to do this once, so I'm just trying to soak up everything and just enjoy it."

Todd McShay ESPN Senior Writer 

Titans surprise by taking WR Corey Davis No. 5 overall. I really like him, and have him ranked 15th on my board. This is their biggest need, but they also have a big hole at cornerback, and Ohio State's Marshon Lattimore (No. 6 overall player) was still on the board.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Titans are basically trolling the Rams. With their No. 5 overall pick, they reached on Corey Davis, a wide receiver the Rams would've loved.
