PLAYERS
Austin Davis
Position: QB
Class:  Sr
HT: 6'1"
WT: 219 lbs.
40 Time: 4.69
Conference: Conference USA
Biography: Moved into the starting lineup as a freshman and was awarded all-conference honors the past two years. Senior passing totals included 60.2%/3496 yards/30 TDs/11 interceptions. Junior numbers included 63.2%/2898/18/6.

Positives: Solid college signal caller with a good head for the position. Knows where his receivers are on the field, makes good decisions in the pocket and remains poised under the rush. Scans the field, goes through receiver progressions and consistently finds the open target. Takes the safe underneath outlet if nothing is available downfield. Does an outstanding job managing and controlling the offense. Effectively reads the defense and shows nice timing on passes. Puts air under passes to give his receivers a chance.

Negatives: Not a big pocket passer and lacks next-level arm strength. Cannot zip the outs and struggles getting the ball through the tight spots.

Analysis: Davis is a high-percentage passer who consistently makes the right choice, yet lacks the physical skills to start at the next level. He could be a backup in a West Coast or timing offense, but he?s unlikely to see significant action in the NFL.

Projection: 6-7
