Overview:

Davis had a great career at Florida, with 201 career tackles, with 20.0 being for losses. He has good size, he is also good in coverage, he also gets good pressure on the quarterback, and he gets through offensive lineman with ease. He also has good speed. The only problems are he does not get a lot of sacks, and he has issues with big offensive lineman at times. There are also injury concerns, as he missed 8 games between 2014, and 2016, so that is something that NFL teams will be wary of. With that said, I view Davis as a late 1st round, to early 2nd round pick when it is all said and done.
