Analysis

Strengths

Good size and body composition. Adjusts well to inaccurate throws while on the move. Very few focus drops during his career. As good as you could ask for at tracking deep ball -- never loses sight of it. Will make late adjustment to underthrown balls so that he doesn't give away ball location to defender with back turned. Outstanding awareness with diligent footwork near sideline and back of the end zone. Runs a subtle, effective deep post. Solid run-after-catch talent as long as it is downfield. Clever hand usage downfield to create pre-catch separation.

Weaknesses

Average athlete. Feet not quick enough to create consistent separation within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage. Below-average release off the line of scrimmage. Athletic cornerbacks can press and crowd him. A little tight in hips. Slow to get into his breaks and then to turn and find ball. Quarterbacks made his life miserable with poorly thrown balls and throws into double coverage. Needs to improve on working back to the ball. Will drop too many contested throws. Missed time in 2014 due to wrist injury.

Draft Projection

Round 6 or 7

Bottom Line

Davis does his best work after the throw is in the air, with terrific awareness and body control. His problem is that he doesn't do anything special before the throw to get open. He doesn't have the feet or acceleration to free himself, so he will have to learn to body up defenders more effectively and become special with his hands in order to be an NFL backup.
