Pos: 
Undersized college defensive end who was a pass-rushing terror. Fires off the snap with a quick first step, bends the edge with speed and shows the ability to immediately redirect and alter his angle of attack. Quickly changes direction and crashes down the line of scrimmage. Gives effort against the run and shows ability in pursuit. Breaks down well, works his hand throughout the action and consistently plays with proper pad level. Attacks assignments.
Neg: 
Consistently stymied at the point by a single blocker. Size is an issue, especially when teams run directly at him.
Analysis: 
Davis was a productive pass rusher for Akron and tested incredibly well at the combine. While he primarily came out of a three-point stance in college, he projects best as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment and could be a situational pass rusher standing over tackle.
