Jordan Davis

DL Georgia 6-6 341 SR #99


 

GRADE: 92  OVR RANK: TBC  POS RANK: TBC
ARM LENGTH: 34″ // HAND SIZE: 10 3/4″
40YD: 4.78 (99%) // 10YD: 1.68 (96%) // VJ: 32″ (89%) // BJ: 10’03” (100%)
BP: ( %) // SS: ( %)// 3C: ( %)

Projection: Currently best fitted to role as a 1-gap penetrator in a 4-3 over front as the 1 tech. Play strength/size should allow scheme versatility with coaching.

Ravens Fit: The rare combination of size/strength, with pass rush upside from the inside is something the Ravens would covet. Other teams will covet this too though. Don’t be fooled into thinking Davis steps in day one and plays the Raven way, just because his size lends himself to being a Nose, for now he’s used to playing as a 1-gap penetrating 1-tech. His play strength/size would suggest that the Ravens could teach him to 2-gap, and his ceiling for this is high. He would slot in to the DL rotation immediately and could play multiple spots in time, given his size and skills – he would be a weapon inside.

Overall Fit 3/5

Context

He plays mostly the 1 technique in a 4-3 over front but the Georgia defense is multiple and he has spent time at 0 & 3 technique as well.

Pass Rush

By far and away his best trait is his upfield burst which is scarily good for his size. He has excellent vertical explosion and good mental processing, he keys the ball quickly, He moves his considerable frame out of his stance quickly. He is very quick to engage, as a penetrator he has a great amount of his weight forward and excellent technique to go with his explosive strength and leverage. When he does engage he strikes first with remarkable power and accuracy, staying low despite his size. He has enough flexion in his lower body to bring his bigger muscles into play and keeps his feet moving on contact. He consistently pushes the pocket against all competition, not many have the anchor to match when he gets into you and gets on the move.

The bull rush with straight power is his fastball pass rush move, and it’s effective but he has a plan and his secondary offerings include a swim move, a two-hand shuck, and a chop-club that he strings together well with fast and powerful hands. He is a handful as a pass-rusher. He does come off the field though and you can see him show less-than adequate physical toughness and resilience as drives linger on into the redzone and the offense gives no time for substitutions. This is not surprising for his size though and the low snap count could be due to Georgia’s loaded Defensive Line rotation.

Vs Run

His upfield burst helps him vs the run too. He has excellent diagnosis of blocks when he’s playing 1 technique and when he doesn’t face double teams. His pre-snap processing allows him to key on pre-snap motion and brings his explosion into play. Against all types of blocks he can match angles and keep himself in position. When he makes contact, it’s with outstanding accuracy and power and he is able to dominate the point of attack one-on-one against all competition.

He can leverage his gap and man-handle the Offensive Linemen with his eyes in the backfield, he can fit his hands and pads while on the run and stay leveraged. He is an expert block shedder, using his hands to disengage and tackle the runner in his gap. Against double teams he doesn’t yet diagnose the second blocker coming for him and so can be pushed out of his gap, leaving backside cut-back lanes open. He does not yet reduce his surface area and occupy double teams as his size and strength should allow him to.

SUMMARY
Rare combination of athleticism, explosion, size and strength. Combines this to wreck running games and be a dangerous pass-rusher. Can be double-teamed

PRODUCTION
SR: 3 Sacks, 1 QB Hit, 26 Total Tackles, 1 FF
JR: 13 Total Tackles
INJURY: Missed 3 games with Elbow injury (JR)
