NAME: Deshaun Davis

SCHOOL: Auburn

CONFERENCE: SEC

POSITION: Linebacker

CLASS: RS Senior

JERSEY: No. 57

RECRUITMENT RATING: 3-star

HT: 5’11”

WT: 246 lbs

D.O.B.: N/A


PROS: Called the team’s on-field defensive coordinator by some of the coaches on staff. Davis has a high football IQ, not just for his team’s scheme, but for what offenses are doing, as well. Understands spacing, where the ball is likely going to go, and can often anticipate over just reacting during plays. Good in zone because he is rarely out of position. Bigger body makes him a force near the trenches. Can stop the run and take up gaps well. Solid, reliable tackler. Is a vocal leader at all times; is a true leader at all times.

CONS: Limited both athletically and in size. 5-foot-11 is not ideal for him as a middle linebacker. Heavier weight makes it tough for him to keep up with any man coverage assignment. Savviness with zone coverage only takes him so far when covering deep zones up the middle. Athletic tight ends can give him problems, if left to cover them by himself.
