Three questions with Western Michigan receiver Corey Davis, who still is recovering from a high ankle sprain. He is projected to become a first-round pick despite playing in the Mid-American Conference, and ESPN's Mel Kiper had Davis going to the Bucs at No. 19 in his latest mock draft.

What separates you from some of the other elite receivers in this draft class?

"I would say a big thing that separates me from them is my work ethic. You can ask any of my coaches or players, my work ethic is the thing that sets me apart from anyone in the country. I've always put in extra work that's probably because I always have that chip on my shoulder. I work like I'm the worst receiver in the draft. My confidence is up there. I know that I'm that top guy.''

What's the value of the combine for you if you're injured?

"Meeting with coaches and doing the medical part of everything. Meeting with coaches is a big thing. That's probably as important as on-field work.''

What gives you confidence you can be as productive at the highest level?

"On my tape I played against some Big Ten teams and I competed with those guys. I'm not afraid of anyone.''
