Overview

Davis was Second Team All-Conference USA, a conference which has surprisingly produced pro-ready quarterbacks over the years, as a senior. He is a good athlete and an accurate short-to-intermediate passer. He started a lot of games and has the pocket presence to stand behind an NFL line early in his career. His prospects are hurt by the general elimination of the third-string quarterback in the NFL. If he is selected late in the draft, he likely will need some time to develop on a practice squad.

Analysis

Strengths

Davis is athletic and systematic in his dropback. Toward the end of his college career, he was hitting a lot of his second and third reads, a good sign when evaluating his NFL readiness. He will need to show the ability to hit fast NFL receivers in stride on the deep ball, but he shouldn't have any problems managing a West Coast offense.

Weaknesses

Davis hasn't played in many high-level games. He struggles with his deep ball at times. His arm strength has underwent a slow yet steady progression throughout college. It remains to be seen whether or not he has the type of zip on his ball to hit a 15-yard out in the NFL.

Grade Title Draft (Round) Description
96-100 Future Hall of Famer Top Pick A once-in-a-generation type prospect who could change how his position is played

70-84 Eventual Starter 2nd-3rd A quality player who will contribute to the team early on and is expected to develop into a starter. A reliable player who brings value to the position.
50-69 Draftable Player 4th-7th A prospect with the ability to make team as a backup/role player. Needs to be a special teams contributor at applicable positions. Players in the high range of this category might have long-term potential.
20-49 Free Agent UDFA A player with solid measurables, intangibles, college achievements, or a developing skill that warrants an opportunity in an NFL camp. In the right situation, he could earn a place on a 53-man roster, but most likely will be a practice squad player or a camp body.
