5. Corey Davis, WR, NY Jets

One of two big free-agent signings the Jets made this offseason, Corey Davis is coming off a career year in which he hauled in 65 catches for 984 yards and five touchdowns — all of which were career highs.

This was despite the fact that he missed a pair of games and was playing second fiddle to A.J. Brown in the Tennessee Titans' run-heavy offense.

Now the established No. 1 wideout in a more receiver-friendly offense, Davis could be set for a huge 2021 season.

The Jets signed Davis to a three-year, $37.5 million contract this offseason because they believed that Davis' best days were still ahead of him. At just 26-years-old, it's safe to say the former Western Michigan star still has some untapped potential.

After all, it was only a few short years ago that the Titans made him the fifth overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. One selection ahead of the last Jets player to make a Pro Bowl — Jamal Adams.

Davis has been a rock-solid No. 2 receiver throughout his career, but could 2021 be the year he breaks out and establishes himself as one of the top-tier wideouts in his conference? It's certainly possible.

His path to a Pro Bowl won't be easy with a stacked group of wide receivers inhabiting the AFC. But Davis should be given every opportunity to best his numbers from a year ago this season.
