The good: Quick wideout had a strong finish to his college career providing both receiving and return skills. Davis is a diminutive receiver with fine athletic ability. He was productive over his final two collegiate seasons despite working with inexperienced and erratic passers. He is very quick and creates running room with his suddenness and sharp cutting skills that creates consistent separation.
The bad: He gets off the line in good shape with quickness and speed, but whether he can beat the jam consistently against NFL cover men remains to be seen. He also will have to prove he can stay on his routes and run precise patterns against physical defenders.
Outlook: Fine addition as a role player with the athletic talent to win the slot receiver role fairly early in his career and the punt return duties possibly as a rookie. He needs to make further progress in key areas such as strength and route running to make it. David has the talent to surprise in camp and earn a key spot as a good role player and a fine bargain as a late selection. The Dolphins and Bucs hope to keep him in the state.
