    PROS: Has played in and started almost every game since his true freshman season in 2017. Recorded the eight most catches and sixth most receiving yards for any freshman in program history. Was named a first-team All-Conference player the following year in 2018.

    Davis is a big-time receiver. He has been the Knights' go-to guy in the passing game no matter who their quarterback has been over the last three years. Isn't super explosive in his routes, but he's nuanced in rounding them out to still gain separation. Davis has reliable hands and a good catch radius. Vertically, he is very tough to defend -- just ask Stanford's Paulson Adebo, who likely underestimated Davis and got torched multiple times.

    CONS: Not a twitched up athlete. He has good long speed with long strides, but he isn't a player who gets out of his stance very quickly or stops on a dime. He's just not violent in and out of changing direction or going from 0-60. He doesn't have a very diverse route tree because of it, but he wins so effectively when going vertical that, to this point, it hasn't held his production back at all.
