Scouting Report/Player Notes

Davis is one of the best running backs in the country without a doubt, and he could very well win the Heisman Trophy as a RS junior in 2012. If he doesn’t, which he may obviously not, he will certainly be one of the highest rated running backs in the 2013 NFL draft. Before Bobby Petrino left, he laid out the plan for Davis’ future, which was to play out this 2012 season like it was his Senior year, and then leave for the pros. Unfortunately, Davis probably should have been a first or second round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, but he went down early in 2011 with an ankle injury that forced him to miss pretty much the entire season. When Davis is on the field, he is almost unstoppable. He has excellent size and vision, and packs a nasty punch. He has very, very good speed for a big guy, and he only has nine starts under his belt. For his production, that’s pretty incredible. He finished the 2010 season with six 100 or more yard games out of seven, and the game he had under 100 yards rushing he had 124 total yards and two touchdowns. The expectations are once again high for Davis, and they should be. He is an elite talent with so many physical tools, and he will have NFL scouts drooling come next February. He is a tough inside runner who has speed to burn on the outside, and he is also a home-run hitter in the passing game. Simply an awesome talent who should be a top 32 pick barring another injury or serious setback in production.
