DETROIT  — The first person from the state of Michigan taken in the 2017 NFL Draft didn’t play football at Michigan or Michigan State.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell — read the selections Thursday night:

“With the fifth pick in the 2017 NFL Draft the Tennessee Titans select Corey Davis — wide receiver — Western Michigan,” said Goodell to rousing applause — the likes he did not hear when Goodell was introduced at the beginning of the program.

Davis caught a career-high 97 passes for 1500 yards and 19 touchdowns last season at Western Michigan.

He joins Randy Moss as the only receivers from the Mid-American Conference taken in the first round.

Davis will likely be the number one pass-catcher on Tennessee’s roster.

Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett was the first overall choice by the Cleveland Browns.
