Geremy Davis' 2014 season didn't go as planned, but that had more to do with the lack of consistency along the offensive line, at quarterback and in the running game than anything else. Still, Davis, who caught 165 passes for 2,292 yards in 46 career games, did enough to earn an invite to the NFL Combine over the weekend and he made the most of his opportunity.
He ranked seventh among 20 wide receivers in the 3-cone drill (6.86 seconds); third in the 60-yard shuttle (11.28); eighth in the broad jump (10'4") and managed a 36.5-inch vertical, which was about average.
But Davis was at his best during "the gauntlet," the pass-catching drill in which balls are fired at receivers from two different directions as they make their way from sideline to sideline. Davis was flawless in the drill, not dropping a pass.
The UConn standout didn't run the 40-yard dash, which he plans to do at his pro day. on March 31.
"I just want to take everything event by event, so if it starts with the bench press, I want to have my mind-set to where all I'm doing is focusing on bench press ... shuttle, so forth and so on. I don't want to think big picture," Davis told the Hartford Courant before the combine. "I want to think of each individual one as I'm competing in the drills."
