03/07/2013 - 2013 Texas Tech Pro Day: NFL scouts will tell you that if a player is talented enough they'll eventually found him. Two under the radar prospects put forth the types of efforts Wednesday that could result in earning a late round selection. At Texas Tech, strong safety Cody Davis stole the spotlight, delivering the kind of numbers to rival any safety invited this year to the combine.

Davis was unofficially clocked at 4.41-4.44 seconds in the 40-yard dash, according to a league source. He also registered a 4.04 seconds in the short shuttle, 11.09 seconds in the long shuttle and 6.79 seconds in the three-cone drill. Perhaps most impressively, Davis posted a 41.5-inch vertical jump, demonstrating a degree of explosiveness that he hadn't shown a few weeks prior when tested at a regional combine held at the Houston Texans' practice facility. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

03/07/2013 - 2013 Texas Tech Pro Day: While Davis' numbers were impressive, the source said that he was not quite as explosive during the positional drills and pointed out that Davis and the rest of the athletes on hand were running on turf, a surface that can generate faster times than a track, such as the ones players ran on inside Lucas Oil Stadium a few weeks ago at the combine. Some teams, in fact, add as much as a tenth of a second to 40-yard dash results taken off of turf.

Davis earned second-team All-Big 12 honors as a senior and leaves Tech eighth on the career list with 362 tackles, including a gaudy 84 solos in 2012 (fourth best in the NCAA). He is viewed as an instinctive defender but more of a drag-down tackler than an explosive hitter, which is why the numbers could boost his stock, especially considering that he wasn't invited to the combine. There were an estimated 15-17 teams represented at the workout, including one defensive backs coach. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

12/28/2012 - Scouting the Texas Tech pass defense: The Raiders were No. 1 in the regular season in pass defense, holding opponents to under 196 yards a contest through the air.

10/13/2012 - West Virginia came into Saturday's game at Texas Tech in the drivers' seat for the Big 12 title, undefeated and eyeing a shot at the BCS champsionship and with quarterback Geno Smith acclaimed as a Heisman Trophy front-runner. The No. 5 Mountaineers left with none of it following a 49-14 loss to the Red Raiders that was the most lopsided Texas Tech victory over a team ranked in the top five. Texas Tech's defense consistently stymied West Virginia's offense. Heisman Trophy hopeful Smith completed 29 of 55 passes for 275 yards, well off his season averages of nearly 400 yards and and 81 percent completion rate. The Red Raiders offense had no trouble moving the ball as quarterback Seth Doege threw TD passes of 39, 19, 16, 2, 29 and 7 yards. He completed 32 of 42 passes and the six touchdowns matched his career-high. Darrin Moore caught three touchdown passes. Earlier, Oklahoma clobbered Texas 63-21 to get a leg up in the Big 12 race, and only benefited from West Virginia being brought back to the pack. Kansas State (6-0, 3-0) is the only undefeated team left in the conference, but next Saturday faces what should be a motivated West Virginia team, followed the next week b by Texas Tech, which is also 2-1 in the league. - AP Sports

07/17/2012 - Top-five Texas Tech prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 5. SS Cody Davis...As bad as the Texas Tech defense was a season ago the unit could have been much worse if not for the reliable, physical tackling of all-conference safety Cody Davis, who paced the Big 12 with an average of 6.55 solo tackles a game. Davis, entering his fourth season as a starter for the Red Raiders, is a classic in-the-box strong safety type who is at his best reading the eyes of the quarterback and attacking the line of scrimmage. He has 261 career tackles entering the 2012 campaign but isn't much of a threat as an interceptor, recording only one (against Houston, 2010) over his career. Davis does break down well against athletic ball-carriers in the open field, however, and has long, strong arms to make the effective wrap-up tackle, while also keeping his hands active to pry away the football (four forced fumbles over his career). Davis will have to prove to scouts that he has the athleticism to handle coverage responsibilities in the NFL to earn a draft selection but his size, durability and open field tackling skills could make him an effective special teams performer. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
