The Jets made another addition to their roster today in signing wide receiver Titus Davis, who spent time with the team on two different occasions in the past.

NFL.com had this to say about Davis in his draft profile coming out of Central Michigan:

STRENGTHS

Outstanding route runner. Has foot quickness to disorient corners off the line of scrimmage. Can “sell and sink” — driving defenders vertically before sinking hips and turning quickly for easy completions. Was able to dominate lesser players playing off coverage. Wins at top of his routes with his hips coming out of his stems and finds ball quickly. Plus awareness with feet near sideline and tracks ball over his shoulder like an NFL veteran. Good leaper with outstanding body control. Has ability to adjust to poor throws and make tough catches. Desired football intelligence with understanding of coverages. Sits down in space against zone coverage and weaves through traffic on shallow crossers. Maximizes yards-after-catch opportunity.

WEAKNESSES

Not a twitch receiver. Can operate in tight spaces, but doesn’t have the acceleration to create separation consistently against NFL-caliber cornerbacks. Doesn’t eat up cushion quickly. Will be forced to make contested catches as a pro. Played against very marginal secondaries. Despite ability to make tough catches, has more focus drops than expected. Longer corners can get into him in press coverage. Average adjustment to lower throws. Lacks shiftiness to become much of a YAC threat as a pro.

DRAFT PROJECTION

Round 5

With this being his third time being brought in by the Jets, the team clearly sees something they like in Davis, but he’s still a long shot to make the 53-man roster.
