“I’ve been getting a good amount of interest from ball clubs,” said Davis. There are no limitations from his knee and he is ready to go through the full amount of work necessary at his up-coming Pro Day. Davis is a team oriented quarterback who attended all team meetings and games even after he was hurt on September 3rd against North Texas.

A bit undersized, Davis possesses good football intelligence has been able to adapt quickly and succeed during his different stops in college. He has dual-threat ability via his arm and legs. Sets his feet quickly and has a nice over the top release. Is patient in the pocket even though he possesses the ability to big up large chunks of yardage rushing the ball.

Fleet of foot and can side step the rush to extend plays when looking down field. Smart and mature and studies the game. Puts decent touch on his passes and has shown the knack time and time again to improvise. Davis is not for everyone due to his height but he does possess some quality intangibles to find himself in camp. High character individual and driven.
