Davis said his toughest matchup came against Texas A&M wide receiver Josh Reynolds. Reynolds is currently an NFL receiver for the Los Angeles Rams. Davis said, “I just watched tape to find his weaknesses because of his length and ball skills.” During that game Davis recorded 6 tackles, 1 TFL and 2 PBUs while holding Reynolds to 7 catches for 93 yards and a touchdown.
Davis is currently preparing to participate in the UTSA pro day as he continues to rise his draft stock and impress NFL scouts prior to the draft in April. Davis is currently training hard and is trying to be in the absolute best shape possible. Davis has proven on the field to be an intriguing corner and with his ability to play in both man and zone he is impressive. Davis also has good hands and speed as he can stick with the receiver through the route and can often disrupt the pass. Davis has also proven to be a decent tackler through his two seasons at UTSA.
