Jamin Davis Highlights
Jamin Davis Draft Profile
Jamin Davis was a stalwart on a Kentucky defense that was arguably the best in the entire SEC last season. He now enters the NFL Draft after three seasons in Lexington. He uses his athletic 6’4″, 234 lbs. frame to the fullest when playing on the interior. Add his talent at pursuing ballcarriers to his length and Davis is a tough backer to get past. Noted additional strengths include strong focus and vision, good recognition in pass coverage and quick lateral movement. In addition to the stats listed out above, Davis returned an interception all the way for a touchdown and blocked a kick last season.
Despite having just 11 career starts on the gridiron, Davis decided to forego his senior season at Kentucky. Naturally, this lack of experience is a surface-level cause for concern. Despite all of his talent, Davis’ inexperience will show through at times on film. He will need to improve his read-and-react speed at the NFL level. Davis also has a tendency to miscalculate angles when in pursuit.
Jamin Davis Draft Projection
Jamin Davis is currently projected to be drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles at No. 37 overall. He is the fourth linebacker selected in this mock draft.
