PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Corey Davis sounds very interested in joining the Eagles.
The arguable top wide receiver prospect in this week’s NFL Draft in Philly says he expects to be selected in the 12-18 range of round one.
“Honestly, I’ll go anywhere. But I like Philly,” Davis told the Carlin & Reese Show. “I visited here, as you know. The coaches are great, great GM. I like the vibe that this city has going on.

“I was just walking around with my brothers,” he said on a rainy Tuesday. “The rain don’t scare me.”
Davis said he already spoke with current Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews.
“I talked to Matthews a little bit and he said he’d be happy to get me.”
Davis tallied 1,500 yards and 19 touchdowns on 97 catches as a senior at Western Michigan, but Davis’ critics will discredit his numbers due to the level of competition.
“I feel like my mindset is just totally different than any other receiver in this draft,” said Davis. “I’ve got that chip on my shoulder, being everything that I’ve been through. Coming out of high school with one offer, so I feel I’ve got a lot to prove. Especially, coming out of college a lot of people doubting my abilities.
