BIO: Four-year starter and an All-Conference selection as a senior after posting 201/973/11 on the ground then adding 13/96 as a receiver in eight games. Missed four games with a fractured bone near his eye and later a thigh bruise. Posted career rushing numbers of 300/1,555/13 as a sophomore.
POSITIVES: Tough, elusive runner with a variety of skills. Displays excellent vision, sees the hole and immediately gets through it. Quick footed, bounces to the outside avoiding piles or makes defenders miss. Patient, runs low to the ground and gets lost behind blockers. Slides off tackle, wedges through opponents and keeps runs alive. Solid receiver out of the backfield and catches the ball with his hands, then works to pick up positive yardage running after the reception. Sets up blocks at the line of scrimmage or down the field.
NEGATIVES: Only marginal speed for a small back and cannot run to daylight. Though aggressive, rarely picks up yardage off initial contact. Has missed 10 games over the past two seasons with assorted injuries.
ANALYSIS: An elusive ballcarrier who lacks the size/speed numbers for the next level and has durability issue, Davis is a situational ballcarrier who cannot take a pounding. If he becomes more productive catching the ball, he will have a spot for an offense willing to give him eight-to-10 touches per game.
