Scouting Report/Player Notes

Still a pretty raw player but was overall fairly dominant in his first big season at Utah State, picking off five passes and racking up 17 pass breakups along with 64 tackles. Davis displayed plus athleticism at the NFL Scouting Combine, and I think he has the size and instincts to be a starting cornerback at the NFL level. He can make plays on the ball better than a lot of corners in this class, and has really good strength allowing him to press at the line. a 4.51 is an average 40 time, but he’s definitely able to hang with receivers deep down field. Will whiff on some tackles, but for the most part that is an area where he excels.
