Overall:

Davis had a great Senior Bowl showing last month in Mobile, Alabama, where he showed great athleticism. Davis also is clearly a big body, great size, a pure run stuffer, and a solid tackler. But he is on slow side, and he tends to get beat by fast backs. The only other downfall is in interviews in Mobile, he mentioned how he isn’t a every down defensive lineman, as he takes plays off, which does concern me about how dedicated he truly is. But with his showing in practice, and the game in Mobile, and if he continues this momentum, then he could be a 1st-round pick come April.
