Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Excellent blend of size, strength and athleticism. Plays with excellent base strength and isn't an easy player to move, handling double-teams well and not allowing himself to be swallowed up by blockers.

Has a strong upper body to stack-and-shed with power to control blocks and force the issue, showing accurate hand placement to latch-and-toss. He is surprisingly light on his feet, closing quickly when he locates and has a lane.

WEAKNESSES: While Davis looks overpowering, too often he plays small. More of a short-area defender with only average body control and redirection technique and while he shows good knee bend and flexibility, he often struggles with leverage issues. Bad habit of standing up, negating his power and getting pushed back.

Player Overview

The anchor of Iowa's defense, Davis was a first-year starter as a junior in 2013 and emerged as one of the Hawkeyes' most valuable defenders. Lining up mostly at the one-technique tackle position, he finished the 2013 season with moderate production (42 tackles, 4.0 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks), but his impact was felt far beyond the stat sheet.
