Two-year starter limited to nine games in 2016 due to injuries to both ankles. Named Second Team All-SEC after making 60 tackles (six for loss) with two sacks and four pass breakups. Ranked second on the team with 98 tackles in 2015, including 11 tackles for loss, and added 3.5 sacks and four pass breakups. Missed the final three games of his sophomore season with a knee injury.
Relatively athletic linebacker who presents himself as a two-down defender. Fluid moving in every direction, breaks down well and chases hard to get involved in the play. Takes proper angles, strings the action out laterally and flows well to the ball carrier. Tough, explosive and plays off blocks from offensive linemen. Vicious run defender who works hard to get involved in the action.
Displays marginal skill in coverage. Not quick changing direction and shows average lateral pursuit speed. Struggled with multiple injuries as a senior.
Davis was highly rated entering his senior season, but injuries kept him from meeting expectations. He possesses the speed and athleticism to line up in a variety of schemes at the next level but must get healthy and get his game back on track.
