History: Four-star recruit from Burtonsville, MD. Was a three-time Captain at The Bullis School. Played in the 2016 Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl. Also participated in track & field in high school. Cousin of former Virginia Tech and nine year NFL Veteran Andre Davis.
Strengths: Incredible length. Great athlete. Good pursuit speed and range. Does a good job sifting through traffic in the run game. Great on field demeanor and motor. Underrated blitzer and the length to have upside there. Team captain as a Senior.
Weaknesses: Thin frame, needs to gain mass. Still pretty raw. Doesn’t have a feel for it in coverage. Although willing to take on blocks, just doesn’t have the strength. A little high hipped. Grip strength and angles as a tackler need work.
Overview: Raw physical specimen that needs time to get bigger and stronger. Has potential pass rushing upside, with his elite length. Has the athletic ability and mentality to shine on special teams early on, and has developmental upside on defense.
Evaluation based on games. Iowa 18′, Pittsburgh 19′
