Davis is a unique talent that boasts great size (6-5, 320) and burst off the line. Generating pressure is his calling card. Several plays a game he’ll get into the backfield and make a big play behind the line.

However, the lack of consistency on tape will cause Davis to drop in the draft. He’s got first-round talent but third-round production.

He’d be a good pick for the Packers on day two of the draft. Green Bay could even trade down with their first pick and take Davis in the middle of the second round, or they could take the chance he’d fall to them with the 62nd overall pick.

He’s versatile enough to play in either a 4-3 or 3-4 defense, but would be an ideal fit as a five-technique defensive end in the Packers system.

He could rotate with Mike Daniels and Datone Jones at end and provide some much-needed size and length on the edge.

Davis is an active player that can disrupt the run and battle through double teams. He’s also a player with good upside and one Green Bay’s coaches could take in and mold into a valuable starter a few years down the road.
