Scouting Report
Davis made a name for himself in the Conference USA championship game when he outplayed FBS passing leader Case Keenum of Houston, throwing for a season-high four touchdowns to lead Southern Mississippi to a 49-28 victory over the favored Cougars. He earned second-team All-C-USA honors after throwing for 30 touchdowns, 11 interceptions and 3,496 yards. It's clear from the NFL scouting combine that Davis is a terrific athlete. His 6.73 time in the 3-cone drill was the best among quarterbacks and just 0.07 seconds behind the mark Tim Tebow of the Denver Broncos set two years ago. Davis' 4.11 20-yard shuttle run was the third-best effort by a quarterback and his 4.76 40-yard dash time was seventh-best. He did not participate in the bench press, though, and his arm strength is a major concern. Davis and Miami's Jacory Harris were invited to the combine as "throwing quarterbacks," meaning they also threw passes to other position groups in the course of the event. It gave them an extra opportunity to display their skills, and that scenario was how the Houston Texans' T.J. Yates became a fifth-round pick a year ago. Davis is unlikely to be selected that high since he doesn't seem to have enough upside, although his prowess as an athlete cannot be denied.
