Has issues with beating blocks from the receiver. Will lower his head and give sub-par tackling efforts.


That is a severe understatement! He is non-existent in the run game. He gives absolutely no effort! He has nice ball skills and gets vertical in the pass game, but he is really awful in run support. I don't see him playing much this season. I would be very surprised. I can only see he him coming in on dime or quarter packages. I think it was a MAJOR reach if you ask me.


It was quite a reach, I think most people had about a 5th round grade on him, because of those issues.

Walter Football had a 3-5 round grade.

But they had Poyer as a 3-4 rounder.

NFLDraft Countdown had him as the 15th best corner in the draft, ahead of Leon McFadden and Tyrann Mathieu and right below B.W. Webb and Jordan Poyer.

Seems like a lot of sites had Poyer ranked much higher than he wound up going... so I'm not sure what the value in their round grade is.

I just finished my write-up on Davis, and after watching some more video...wow! And I don't mean that in a good way. The kid has some SERIOUS work to do on his tackling and run support.

And coverage.....lol.

How many times can one CB get beat deep? Whatever that number is, he approached it...

I said that if he works on his zone coverage and tackling he could compete for a nickel corner job...that may have been a bit ambitious in retrospect
