Davis (groin) is likely to operate as the Jets' No. 3 safety in 2020, Ethan Greenberg, Eric Allen and Randy Lange of the team's official site report.
Jamal Adams -- barring an unexpected trade -- and Marcus Maye are entrenched in the starting spots at safety, but Davis could still see the field in specialized packages this year. The rookie third-round pick started the past two seasons at Cal and recorded six interceptions in 24 games.
The Jets selected Davis (groin) in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 68th overall.
Davis was the heart of California's stout defense over the past few seasons. He was a two-year starter who collected six interceptions over the last two seasons. Davis was unable to test at the combine due to a groin injury, but the film shows that he is a strong athlete. Davis has the ability to cover in the slot or play single-high safety, giving the Jets a versatile piece for their defensive backfield.
