Outlook: Is a classic in-the-box SS type who is at his best when reading the eyes of the QB and attacking the line of scrimage. While not much much of an Interception threat Davis breaks down well against athletic ball-carriers in the open field and has long, strong arms to wrap-up tackle, while also keeping his hands active to pry away the football. Davis will have to prove to teams that he has the athleticism to handle coverage responsibilities in the NFL. He has the Size, Speed, Durability and open field tackling skills that have been absent in are secondary for the past few seasons.
While at the Super Regional Combine in Dallas NFL scouts were quoted as saying that Davis's size and agility along with his suprising ball skills would make him a mid 3 to 4 round talent and could be one of the biggest sleepers in this years Safety Class.
