Corey Davis felt more of a comfort level with Ravens than other teams

Western Michigan wide receiver Corey Davis visited the Baltimore Ravens, Tennessee Titans, Philadelphia Eagles, Cleveland Browns and Arizona Cardinals before the NFL draft.

But a recent meeting with the Ravens left a different impression than the rest on one of the draft's top three pass-catchers.

"Just the entire feel is a lot different than I had with any other team. It was really comfort," Davis told ESPN.com. "That's a credit to coach [John] Harbaugh and what he has going out there and their GM [Ozzie Newsome]. It was a lot of fun."

The Browns (Nos. 1 and 12), Titans (No. 5), Cardinals (No. 13) and Eagles (No. 14) all select ahead of the Ravens. Baltimore would seriously consider Davis if he were available at No. 16.

Davis set an FBS record with 5,285 career receiving yards and caught 52 touchdown passes in 50 starts. Last season, he had 97 receptions for 1,500 yards.

But Davis' draft grade could get hurt by the fact he didn't participate in drills at the NFL combine or his pro day after having surgery in January to repair two torn ligaments in his ankle.

On Friday, Davis posted a 10-second video on Twitter of him running a deep route with explosiveness and catching a pass with one hand deep downfield. He feels that his ankle is a few weeks away from being 100 percent.

"I talked it over with my agent and we felt that it was in my best interest to let everyone know I'm in good health and my ankle is doing fine," Davis said of the video.

If Davis lands in Baltimore, he will go from catching passes from one Flacco brother to another. At Western Michigan, Tom Flacco wasn’t the starter, but he completed 10 of 13 passes for 188 yards and one touchdown as a dual-threat backup.

"His little brother is a little bit more of a runner and has more speed," Davis said.

There's no consensus on the best wide receiver in this draft. Clemson's Mike Williams has the size at 6 feet 4, 218 pounds. Washington's John Ross has the blazing speed. Davis has the unbelievable numbers in college and the label of being the best route runner.

"I feel like my mindset level and competitive level is different than any other receiver in the draft," Davis said. "I work a lot harder than any receiver. I definitely want it."
