Strong Points

Has good size with a frame to carry about 245. Has very good play speed and overall athleticism. Shows strength and has good hand use to keep a blocker off his body and shed quickly. Very instinctive and alert, gets to ball quickly and makes plays in the run game. Quick with his pass drop, has range, can play man or zone and can transition. Not used a lot to blitz but effective when he does. Tough, physical and a leader.

Weak Points

Missed four games with an ankle injury. Needs to get a little bigger. Will miss some tackles when he doesn't wrap. Did not work out at Combine as he was not 100 percent coming off ankle injury.

The Way We See It

Davis is a highly productive inside linebacker and the type of player many clubs are now looking for at the linebacker position. He is very instinctive and plays fast. Has adequate to good size and has the frame to get a little bigger without losing any of his athleticism. Has the position versatility to play Mike or Will in a 4-3 or play either ILB position in a 3-4. His coverage skills will keep him on the field every down. Assuming he is healthy, he should be able to come in and play right away as a rookie.
