BIOGRAPHY: Full-time starter the past three years after seeing action with the first team in six games as a freshman. All-Conference selection as a senior.

POSITIVES: Davis has been a productive three-year starter at Pittsburgh, and he offers enough skill to play in a zone blocking system at the next level. If he makes football a priority and works hard, he could make it as an inexpensive backup.

NEGATIVES: Marginal athlete who lacks great upside. Not a dominant lineman who drives defenders off the ball. Lacks the strength to finish blocks. Has a reputation as someone who must push himself harder.

ANALYSIS: Quick, low-to-the-ground blocker who shows ability in motion. Explodes off the snap, strong at the point, and walls defenders from the action with good body positioning. Keeps his feet moving throughout the action, quickly pulls across the line of scrimmage, and can hit a moving target. Stays square, effectively uses his hands, and consistently gets leverage on opponents.

PROJECTION: FA
