Draft Profile: Bio

Tacario Davis, from Millikan High School in Long Beach, California, emerged as a promising talent, earning a 3-star recruit rating from ESPN and 247 Sports. During his high school career, Davis was a two-way player, excelling as both a cornerback and wide receiver. He accumulated 45 solo tackles, 29 assists, 26 receptions for 463 yards, and six touchdowns.

Joining the Arizona Wildcats, Davis appeared in five games as a freshman in 2022, recording five tackles and one pass breakup. His sophomore year in 2023 saw significant improvement, with Davis playing in all 13 games and starting in 11. He led the Pac-12 with 15 pass breakups, adding 25 total tackles, including 16 solo tackles, and one interception. His performance earned him All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention and AP Second-Team All-Pac-12 honors.

In early 2024, Davis entered the transfer portal following the departure of Arizona's head coach but decided to stay after evaluating the new coaching staff. His 2023 season highlighted his skills in coverage, with a 27.8% forced incompletion rate, ranking fifth among Power Five cornerbacks. His physical presence and athletic ability made him a key player in Arizona's defense.

Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Displays excellent instincts and anticipation, allowing him to read and react quickly.
  • Physical at the line of scrimmage, showing power in his hands to disrupt routes.
  • High competitiveness and effort, making him a tough and fiery player.
  • Uses his size to limit receiver space and is difficult to beat vertically.
  • Scheme versatile, capable of performing in both man and zone coverage.
  • Exhibits excellent movement skills for his size, making direction changes smoothly.
  • Stays low in his backpedal with the ability to break up plays in front of him.
  • Effective tackler who doesn't miss tackles and contributes well in run defense.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Only average long speed, which can be a liability against faster receivers.
  • Feet can be sloppy in backpedal, occasionally slow in transitioning to close on the ball.
  • Needs to improve understanding of route combinations and overall vision.
  • Can be overly aggressive at times, leading to penalties or missed assignments.
  • Body flexibility is limited, impacting his ability to adjust in mid-air to make plays on the ball.
Scouting Report: Summary

Tacario Davis showcases elite traits that make him a standout prospect. His length and physicality at the line of scrimmage disrupt receivers’ timing, and his aggressive tackling adds value in run support. Davis’s ability to read the quarterback and break on the ball highlights his playmaking skills, evident in his impressive forced incompletion rate.

On the flip side, Davis has some areas that need polish. His straight-line speed is average, and he can get caught flat-footed with quicker route runners. His footwork can be inconsistent, which affects his transition in coverage. Davis needs to refine his route recognition to avoid being caught out of position.

Looking ahead to the NFL, Davis projects as a starting corner with the versatility to play in multiple schemes. His physical tools and competitive edge provide a strong foundation, but he’ll need to tighten up his technique. With the right coaching, Davis has the potential to be a key playmaker in an NFL secondary.

A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
