Scouting Report: Strengths
- Davis looks like a potential pro starter and top 120 pick, ideally suited for a team that utilizes a rotation heavy defensive line.
- Gets his big hands up to block passes if unable to beat his man, and follows the quarterback on moving pockets and sniffs out screens.
- Flashes enough quickness off the snap to threaten gaps at three-technique, especially when slanting.
- He is strong enough in the lower body to hold up at the point of attack, and Davis displays a good feel as a grappler in the phone booth, consistently getting blockers off-balance before sending them to the ground.
- Despite a bowling-ball build, he has good feet and agility, capable of working laterally down the line of scrimmage in pursuit.
- A compactly built, high-motor lineman, he brings a nice blend of power and quickness. Davis shows impressive get-off, often exploding off the line and getting into gaps before blockers can react.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- He’s a straight-line mover who doesn’t have the range to chase in pursuit.
- While he’s a decent lateral mover, Davis doesn’t show great closing speed when he has to chase in pursuit.
- Good strength, though his marginal arm length limits his ability to grab hold of ballcarriers as they run by.
