2. Jamin Davis, Kentucky
6-foot-3, 234 pounds
2021 NFL Draft grade: Second round

A player who burst onto the scene this year is Kentucky linebacker Jamin Davis. Davis saw very limited playing time his first three years on campus and was only able to account for 42 tackles and one tackle for loss. However, that all changed this past season when Davis led Kentucky in tackles with 102 and also finished second on the team in interceptions with three.

What really stands out with Davis is his athletic ability. He has the range to play sideline to sideline and does not look out of place when dropping in coverage. He shows good ball skills while in coverage as well evident by his three interceptions last season. Another positive with Davis is his size coming in at 6-foot-3 and 234 pounds. One last thing working on Davis’s side is his ability to play either inside or outside linebacker in the NFL.

The biggest concern with Davis is a lack of production. The fact he saw very limited playing time his first couple of seasons is a concern and could raise flags on if he is just a one-year wonder. Davis could also use his hands better as well when it comes to getting off blocks.

In Mel Kiper’s latest mock draft he had Davis going to the Oakland Raiders with the 17th pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. While this may be a little high for him he should hear his name called either late in the first round or early in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft. One team that would make a lot of sense for him would be the Denver Broncos with the 40th overall pick.
