Davis surprisingly gave up the chance to enter the 2021 NFL Draft, this was made even more surprising that he could have easily been selected in the second round. He hopes it pays off with a potential first-round selection in the 2022 NFL draft.

It's not very often you see a lineman with this combination of size and strength (6' 6" 340lbs). It's rarer for a man of his size to put it all together and produce and that's exactly what he has done during his time at Georgia.
Georgia defensive lineman Jordan Davis played in 11 games as a freshman in 2018, making four starts, and 25 tackles, with 1.5 sacks, getting the Football Writers Association of America Freshman All-American Team and Coaches Freshman All-SEC Team honors. In 2019, Davis played in 14 games, made eight starts, and finished the year with 18 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, and 2.5 sacks.
He has produced 5 sacks and 6.5 tackles for a loss over 27 games and his production has improved this year (1.5 sacks and 3.0 tackles for a loss in only 6 games) - while those numbers don't really jump off the stat sheet they need to take into account he played mostly as a big body space eater.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Strong tackler. Has good power in hands and can anchor, shed, and chase.
  • Has the ability to create a pile in the middle, even showing the ability to split the occasional double-team.
  • solid anchor this consumes space and is almost impossible to move - gives off an even bigger Vince Wilfork vibe. You can count on one hand the number of times he's been pushed off the line of scrimmage
  • Amazing speed for a man of his size - with excellent change of direction skills
  • Surprising initial quickness off the snap. Relies mostly on a simple bull rush at this point, which is quite effective in collapsing the pocket.
  • Good strength and balance to sit down, lock out and create a pile, leading to possibilities inside and out (in the 3-4).
  • Has the best size of any lineman in this year's class he could dominate at the next level
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Plays upright and has had struggles with leverage.
  • Despite having great size and speed - probably hasn't performed quite as well in the pass rush game as you would have hoped
  • Has been used as a space-eater in the run game and hasn't had much experience as a pass-rusher. It remains to be seen if he can improve this area of his game in the NFL
  • Isn't able to consistently shed blocks and makes plays in the hole - although has had to put with constant double-teaming in mitigation
Scouting Report: Summary
Davis has seen his stock on the rise of late and has likely played his way into not only early first-round conversations but Heisman conversations. While the Heisman is still probably unlikely it's not unlikely that he'll end up being the top DT taken in the 2022 NFL Draft.
His ceiling - given the talent and athletic ability is pro-bowl level (if he develops some pass rush moves) while his floor is a solid NFL-run defender.
