Misc. Stats: 3 career carries for 14 yards. Went 2/2 for 40 yards in career.
Accolades: 2013 MAC Freshman of the Year, 3x first-team all-conference, 2016 Mid-American Conference Offensive Player of the Year, 2016 first-team All-American
Injuries: Suffered a concusion in 2013, and missed 1 game. Injured his left hamstring in 2014, missing 1 game. Injured his right ankle in January 2017, keeping him out of the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine.
History: Prepped in Illinois. Western Michigan was his only FBS offer.
Strengths: Good size. One of the most productive WRs in FBS history (holds FBS career rec yards record). Catches the ball at the highest point, can go up and get it, red zone target. Shows a burst after the catch while racking up YAC. Good kid and teammate.
Weaknesses: Isn’t an elite athlete, isn’t a burner. Needs to work on his route running, becoming more precise. Small hands and lack of focus has racked up some drops over the years. Ankle injury will need to be looked at.
Overview: Extremely productive, big red zone target who can win 50/50 balls with the best of them. Will need to work on his craft in the NFL. Davis isn’t going to run by anyone in the NFL. To me, he’s not a true #1 WR and I couldn’t take him in the first half of Rd. 1.
Draft Projection: Late 1st, Early 2nd Round Pick
