Scout Eval: Davis is a running back that runs with patience and he just has that natural feel for the position. He is a downhill runner, but a graceful runner at the same time. He has very good vision, he lets things develop, and he knows when to turn it up field. He may lack top end speed and he can still work on his agility, but he is a strong back that produces at a high level. - Chad Simmons
