Davis is a physical cornerback with lock-down ability. He has excellent footwork, fluid hips and the tenacious attitude to deliver a devastating hit. He’s strong at the point of attack, aggressive throughout routes and has success against small and tall receivers. He has a great sense of timing, possesses a quick burst and flashes great ball skills that turn defense into offense instantly.

Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis Here's a nice value for Miami. Davis has outstanding skills and should be able to compete for serious playing time right away. Miami has poor depth at the cornerback position and he should be no worse than their nickel back this season.
