03/16/2013 - 2013 Utah State Pro Day: Representatives from 11 NFL teams gathered at the pro day held at Utah State on March 7, where two players who participated at the NFL Scouting Combine went through a workout held indoors on FieldTurf. Will Davis, CB (6-0 1/8, 184) - Davis did a 36-inch vertical jump and then stood on his numbers from the combine. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

03/07/2013 - 2013 Utah State Pro Day: Davis and Williams, who both excelled in last week's NFL Scouting Combine, sat out all the measured tests except Davis' vertical jump. However, both players did participate in on-field drills and felt good about their performances. "I probably wasn't as smooth as I wanted to be on some of those drills, but the ball is still going to be there," Davis said. "As a defensive back, you aren't going to get a good ball, no one is going to throw it to you right on target. It's going to be like that in games and you've got to sell out. The main thing I wanted to do today was show my ball skills and show I could catch the ball. I dropped one and that was frustrating because it was probably the easiest one of all. Otherwise I was happy." - Utah State Football

01/22/2013 - 2013 SENIOR BOWL, TUESDAY FALLER: CB Will Davis, Utah State (North Team)...After a strong senior season, Will Davis created some buzz as a possible early round draft choice, but so far through two practices, he hasn't lived up to those expectations. He has struggled on an island in man coverage, playing undisciplined and often getting turned around by receivers. Davis has the athleticism and ability to potentially start at the next level, but he needs to do a better job staying balanced to anticipate routes and gain accurate position. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

12/15/2012 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: Senior cornerback Will Davis gets picked on. But he picks back. Davis leads the nation in passes defended (1.75), 11th in the nation in interceptions (0.42), with five interceptions this year. His ability to play "on the island" in 1-on-1 coverage allows USU to implement a roaming strategy for its two strong safeties that gets them closer to the line of scrimmage to help on run support. - The Sports Xchange

12/07/2012 - 2012 ALL-WAC FIRST TEAM (COACHES): DB-Will Davis, Utah State, 6-0, 192, Sr., has been selected First Team All-Western Athletic Conference (Coaches selection) for the 2012 college football season. Davis, a 6-0, 186-pound senior defensive back from Spokane, Wash. (Central Valley HS/De Anza College) ranks first in the nation in passes defended (1.75 pg), second in the WAC and tied for 11th in the nation in interceptions (0.42 pg), and tied for 38th in the WAC in tackles (4.7 pg).

On the season, Davis leads the team in passes defended (21), passes broken up (16) and interceptions (5), while ranking tied for fifth in tackles for loss (4.5) and eighth in overall tackles (56). Davis' five interceptions in 2012 are the most by an Aggie since 2003, while his five interceptions in as many games is the longest USU streak since 1973. - Utah State football

(De Anza College), made four tackles (3 solo) and returned an interception 59 yards for his first career touchdown in the 45-9 win over Idaho. The interception return for a touchdown was the first by a Utah State player since 2007. Davis helped hold the Vandals to just 52 passing yards, the fewest by an Aggie opponent since 1998. He has now intercepted a pass in five-straight games. Also nominated on defense: junior defensive back Bene Benwikere, San Jose State; and senior linebacker Brandon Reeves, UTSA. - WAC football
