2021 NFL Draft Scouting Report: QB Davis Mills

Photo: Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports


Davis Mills has average athleticism overall with regards to agility in and out of the pocket. He does a good job with subtle movements inside the pocket. However, on boots, naked, and RPOs, his lack of good athleticism and movement shows. He is a competitive player who has rallied his team from deficits. He is more accurate in the short to intermediate area than he is with his deep ball—although he shows moments of good touch on his deep passes. 

Ideal Role: Backup NFL quarterback.

Scheme Fit: Quick-timing passing offense with downfield vertical throws. This offense would ideally lack a lot of RPO and zone-read principles.
