PROSPECT SUMMARY – BRADY DAVIS

Brady Davis originally started his career at Memphis, where he spent his first three seasons. Redshirting in 2015, and then suffering a torn ACL in 2016, he would miss the entire season. Following his recovery, he only experienced action in one game in 2017, which led to him transferring to Illinois State. Upon his arrival, he had a career year during the 2018 season, but experienced another setback in 2019 as he suffered another ACL tear. During the season finale (Missouri State), Davis experienced another disclosed injury. Prior to that point, Davis proved to be an on-schedule thrower with B-level arm strength. Awareness inside and outside of the pocket, he has enough mobility to win in both facets. A clean progression reader, he has the ability to get through multiple steps, but must learn to utilize his outlets more consistently. Durability remains one of the bigger concerns for Davis moving forward. 

Ideal Role: Developmental No. 3 QB that could spend significant time on the practice squad or in an outside league.

Scheme Fit: Erhardt-Perkins system.
