His speed comes both up and down the field, as well as side-to-side movement. Davis ran a 4.78-second 40-yard-dash at the NFL Combine and can get off the line with the best of the class, making him a top priority for teams who need help stopping the run.

Weaknesses

His sack numbers are also very low. He played on a loaded defense for the entirety of his career as a Bulldog, but averaged just 1.75 sacks per season.
