Pos: 
Three-year starter and All-Conference selection who has been a tackling machine at Auburn. Quickly reads and diagnoses plays, remains disciplined with assignments and flies around the action to make plays. Fires up the field and explodes through gaps to defend the run. Displays ability in pursuit, chases the action hard and wraps up tackling. Stays with coverage assignments, does not bite on ball fakes and shows a good head for the position.
Neg: 
Possesses more of a short closing burst than sustained speed. Lack of height will cause mismatch problems in coverage. Better up the field than in reverse.
Analysis: 
Davis is a dominant run defender and plays with great intensity. Graded as a late-round pick, he can back up on the inside of a 3-4 defense and plays special teams.
