    Strong Points: Active. Athletic. competitive. Strong key-and-diagnose skills. In on a number of plays. Awareness in coverage. Good strength for size. Adequate hand use.

    Weak Points: Short, small and plays small -- too often overpowered at the point of attack by big offensive linemen and very slow to get off blocks. If he can't slip a block, he can take himself out of the play. Only adequate range.

    The Way We See It: Davis was a very good college player who lacks the necessary physical traits to be anything more than a special-teams player at the NFL level. Davis reacts quickly, but he is a small, block magnet. Though he plays hard, he won't be able to overcome his limitations. Davis will be a late Day 3 pick at best and no more than a fifth or sixth linebacker.
