Pos: 
Physically gifted defensive back with an unpolished game. Aggressive, explosive and jars opponents with big hits. Defeats blocks and gets up the field to make plays on the ball carrier. Fluid in his backpedal and in reverse, uses his length as an advantage and shows a good burst to the ball out of his plant. Tracks the pass in the air and fights to break up throws.
Neg: 
Slow to get his head back around, faceguards too often and gets very grabby in coverage. Hesitant, indecisive and does not always play with a sense of urgency. Tends to lose receivers and blows assignments.
Analysis: 
Davis is a physical specimen with an inconsistent game and unpolished ball skills, but he has great upside. He must play in a system where he faces the action and could eventually get consideration at safety.
